with the new App update to my 2535, Google Local Search is GONE!

It has been replaced with something called Local Search, and it does not come up with the same results. the App is 12.040.1030488.84

 

I loved Google Local.

 

Can I back out the update?

Re: NO MORE GOOGLE SEARCH!!!!!

I believe it has simply been replaced by a different search engine. It's no different that replacing Google with Bing or Yahoo! search on a laptop. Google is certainly the most popular, but in most cases, the other options will also get one the required information.

People has paid for live service inc.  google. You cannot replace google service by another. It is not legal!

It is not working correct. I cannot find swimming pool or company near me. I want my service back - I have paid for it.

@Arthur-A: Unfortunately you can't revert to 12.035. We'll see what's going on. Hopefully a bit of pressure on TT will make them to change their mind, and put the Google Search back in the next update.

Re: NO MORE GOOGLE SEARCH!!!!!

I agree! I have paid for this service, and want it back.
What is wrong with TT? Maps that’s not accurate as I have experienced them.
HD traffic is taking longer and longer time to connect, and seems more inaccurate.
If this continues, I will not renew my subscription. I have many better options for GPS unit that actually works!
TT, please get back on track…

Olex
