Google Now GPSAs part of its Monday, October 29 announcements, Google introduced improvements and updates to its free Google Now service, which is designed to "get you just the right information at just the right time," states Google. Google Now runs on the very latest Android 4.2 operating system. Google Now tries to anticipate your information needs before you even do a search. For example, if you approach a train station, Google Now will have a train schedule for that location queued up on a "card" that you can access with a swipe. Google Now will also access your calendar and e-mail, with your permission, to look for appointments and locations that match up with your location (determined by GPS and WiFi positioning) at any given time. The latest version of Google Now adds many more real-time "cards" to the service, including weather, traffic, flights, restaurants, events, and even package delivery notices. Image Google
