Google Voice Search for Maps

So now you no longer have to type your location's name, just say it.

I ran about twenty tests and it worked pretty well. It had some issues with Hebrew named locations, but overall, it worked very well. I even said Yerushalayim, Israel and it figured it out as Jerusalem, Israel. Yerushalayim is the Hebrew name for Jerusalem.

Does it work well for you?
