I asked this question on Stack Overflow a couple of days ago and since then it hasn't gotten a single answer or even comment. Weird.

In Google Maps on Android, the "Navigation settings » Play voice over Bluetooth" option doesn't do anything ever since upgrading to Nougat. The voice always plays over Bluetooth when there is a Bluetooth connection.

I frequently drive without actually turning on my radio ( or using a mode other that BT Audio). Even when my car's radio is off, it still connects to my phone with Bluetooth. The end result is that a minute or so after I start driving Google Maps stops giving me audible directions, which I often don't discover until after missing a turn.

Is there some way to force +Google Photos​ to refresh, ie: download recent thumbnails from the cloud? My phone says everything is backed up, but when I look at Photos on my tablet, the last 100 or so (taken with my phone over the last 2 weeks) aren't there.

Neat.

"During his research, Gadoury examined 22 Mayan constellations and discovered that if he projected those constellations onto a map, the shapes corresponded perfectly with the locations of 117 Mayan cities. Incredibly, the 15-year-old was the first person to establish this important correlation, reported the Journal de Montreal over the weekend.

Then Gadoury took it one step further. He examined a twenty-third constellation which contained three stars, yet only two corresponded to known cities. 

Gadoury’s hypothesis? There had to be a city in the place where that third star fell on the map.

Satellite images later confirmed that, indeed, geometric shapes visible from above imply that an ancient city with a large pyramid and thirty buildings stands exactly where Gadoury said they would be. If the find is confirmed, it would be the fourth largest Mayan city in existence."

I don't know if I should be relieved or concerned by this notification that mysteriously appeared on my phone...
