I have an HTC Desire phone running Android and I use the Google Maps application. I can search for locations using text entry but I would like to be able to use the voice entry feature which was added last year.
You can now search Google Maps for Android simply by speaking your query and Google Maps will search it for you.
I have the latest version of Google Maps from the Android Market but I don't see how to activate this voice search feature. I have tried opening Google maps, pressing the search key at the bottom-right of the phone, and then saying for example 'London' into the phone's microphone, but nothing happens.
How do I use the voice search in Google Maps for Android?
There is no microphone icon next to the search bar.
