Live Search auto update with location

I've tried to search and see if there were threads about this issue but couldn't find anything, perhaps wrong keywords.

I'm wondering if the Live Search should auto update based on your location. I currently have to change the location select the current GPS location and then search for restaurants that are currently near by. If not, then I would get information on restaurants in San Diego.

is there a better solution to use instead of the Live Search?

Thanks

Re: Live Search auto update with location

i hate that it tries to save the current location as a new location, then sez "there's already a location by that name, do you want to overwrite?"

Re: Live Search auto update with location

Set it to use "Current GPS Position" it's giving you the option to name your current location for future use.

+1 for that. I drive a truck and that's how I do it. Works great for me.

Re: Live Search auto update with location

Problem is, when you set it to "Current GPS Position" it just defaults to your last position for some reason, instead of bothering to find your current position, which is very annoying.

Re: Live Search auto update with location

I've started to use the google maps instead. It picks up quicker on the gps location, and the searching for things seems to work fine. I liked that the Live Search had the categories. Maybe an update will fix the gps location
