    I just clicked on some setting on my Note2 and it brought up a recent location i went to and asked if i wanted to write a review on it? This has me thinking, what are all the locations on my note 2 that are storing info on where i have gone? Is there a master button to purge everything, maps, google now, etc?

    Thanks.

    dont' know know what purging the info will do for you, as its all in the cloud... you know, as outlined in the TOS when you activated the phone/google now

    Is it possible to purge it all from Google in the cloud?

    For Google Maps, this link will help.

    Not sure how to get rid of any other specific item but Latitudes is the location "brain" from what I understand. I assume you could Google search that.

    Or just stay out of the strip joints!! ;) (j/k)

    Is it not like ios where there's a central hub in settings for enabling and disabling location by app?
