[Bug Watch] Google Maps Fails To Load Directions When Prompted From Search

If you're looking for a nearby place to eat and want directions on how to get there, open Google Maps first. If you try using the Google Search app or the web, you probably won't get the results you want.

LG G Watch R Does Not Get Wi-Fi Support With Android Wear 5.1.1 Update, Will Require A Separate Patch Going Out This Summer

One of Android Wear 5.1's key new features is the ability to connect smartwatches to Wi-Fi networks directly. This lets them receive notifications and sync actions even if your phone isn't nearby, as long as both maintain active connections to the Internet. The thing is, this feature doesn't automatically kick in with the 5.1 update (or 5.1.1, though it should for the Moto 360, Sony Smartwatch 3, and Samsung Gear Live).
