[SUPPORT] Bing Search results not showing full address

Postby bkayrac » Sun Aug 28, 2011 3:50 am

Hello, I have a motorola triumph(the new virgin mobile phone)

Tonight i found out that using the search returns results from bing, however they do NOT show the city/state for me.....just the name and the address

i double checked on my girls HTC and my friends iphone, and both return the proper results

this makes it quite hard to choose your proper destination, anyways i'm wondering if anyone has encountered this before, or has a solution for it?...........an example would be

Waze
240 Hamilton Ave
Palo Alto, CA
94301

my bing search results would only show this

Waze, 240 Hamilton Ave

i've added a screenshot below

lol i didn't notice that :P....but alas not even a city/state for victoria secrets :P

btw i can verify that the bing search WORKS on an iphone, and on a HTC aria, if that helps any......the HTC aria i know for sure is on android 2.2

i'm glad i'm not the only one with this problem :)

hopefully more can chime in and we can get it troubleshooted and fixed quickly, because it's irritating as hell not knowing what city/state the results are in.........especially if your near a border :P

I'm surprised you can't reproduce this. As far as I can remember its always been this way on my Droid2. I'm running release 2.4.0.1 on Android 2.2.

I agree. I thought it was like this for everybody. If the name of the POI and the street address are really short then sometimes the city fits on the second line but it seems like it's almost always kicked off the end. Personally, I would rather have the name of the POI be truncated (or better yet, scrolling) rather than lose the city. I'm using an HTC Droid Incredible with Android 2.2.

Just noticed the same problem on my DX... unrooted, so no screen shot possible.

My guess is that there will be little attention to this now and we just cross our fingers that android 3.0 beta comes out soon!
