    Google Navigation & Maps

    New here and not much of a forum person but I need to know what happened to my Navigation system on my EVO. Earlier today I tried using my navigation and my maps, neither app would open. Then my Sprint nav was requesting an update so I allowed it (I prefer the Google nav system by a mile). It updated and I used it because I was running behind. It worked fine. But my Google app is not loading. The Sprint nav is now Telenav and they want $4.99 a month for premium! Can somebody please help me get the Google nav and maps back. Or help me understand what happened.

    Thanks

    Hmm... works fine for me. You should try a restore or uninstall and reinstall of Maps.

    I had my navigation disappear completely off my droid razor max last night. no where to be found!! I called Verizon and they had no clue. It was a pre loaded app told me they could rest everything and hope that it would come back. I am just using Google maps now and I see that they have updated it. So I am wondering if they are the ones that took it off. I also went to Google apps and tried to upload it and also got one that wants you to up grade, so that's not a option because its too annoying! Google Maps is working like the navigator did for the most part so going to work with it for a bit.

    The new maps replaces the navigator. They finally tied it fully into one app.

    Only if you're rooted. Unless Motorola has a factory way of flashing firmware you'd have to flash back to that, then turn off auto updates for maps.

    Just uninstall the update and Navagator comes back. You'll lose your recent and favs but it will come back on Verizon.

    I have to agree. The new maps really sucks. I had navigation yesterday but maps updated on the way to work this morning and navigation was nowhere to be found on my way home. I could get the suggested routes to come up through Google cards but could not find any way to get it to start navigating. Now that I'm home looking at the phone I can see the "start" button with the navigation symbol on the lower right. grrr not a friendly update at all without any prior notice.

    Yep, Navigation app and icon now gone after Maps update. Now takes three steps within Maps to do what Navigation did with one. This is an improvement? BS! Restore the Nav app, Google, or streamline the functionality of Maps. Your latest "upgrade" of Maps is pure crap.

    I'm an OTR driver and discovered this the hard way. I removed the update and now I'm sort of back to normal. I was allowed to integrate Sygic with my maps, not with this update. I'll run this old app until I can integrate. Sucks
