|How do I get rid of a google now traffic card||rbyers||8/16/12 1:53 PM|
I have somehow gotten a new traffic card that shows up every time I swipe for google now. The traffic card tells me how far I am from the Google Office in Venice CA. I don't care how far I am from the google office in venice. My question is "How do I get rid of this one traffic card". There doesn't seem to be an option to kill it. I have never searched for the google office. I cleared the search cache and search data just in case. I have nothing to do with the google office.

Is the card only appearing at a certain time, such as in the morning when you might leave for work, or in the afternoon when you might leave an office to drive home? If so, then Google Maps might think that Google's Venice office is your workplace or your home.
If you've downloaded the latest version of the Google Maps app (which just came out) you can check to see if the Venice office is set as your work or home by following the instructions in this Help Center article under the Interacting with My Places heading at the bottom of the page -- just check your home and work locations under My Places.
Alternatively, you can check the home and work settings from a desktop computer. Here's an article in the Google Maps Help Center that outlines how.
(It's a very nice office, by the way -- if you're ever offered a chance to take a tour you should.) :-)
