On Wednesday when I left Dallas, everything worked. When I searched for an address, and clicked on it (or touched "directions"), it immediately switched to navigation (not Verizon but the free one with the blue arrow). It would pick up my location for the starting point and then give me directions. If I wanted to turn my phone into a GPS I simply clicked the arrow.
This was easy. #1 touch address, #2 touch the blue arrow and I was on my way.
After landing in Phoenix on Wednesday, and restarting my phone, now when I click on an address, it goes to google maps and doesn't know my location (even though I have my GPS turned on). There is a "enter a location" option but most of the time, as I'm driving about, I have no idea what my current address is. To get this to work I have to enter an address manually after stopping to see what street I'm on and what address I'm near. If I enter an address, it gives me directions (no longer turns into my navigation GPS device). To get it to do that, I have to copy and paste the address into the navigation app AFTER I've opened it. This is a huge hassle compared to the ease of things when I left Dallas.
I stopped at two Verizon stores in the Phoenix area, and no one at either store knew what changed, or how to fix it. They tried it on their phones and their phones no longer immediately switched over to the navigation app after clicking on an address (no longer is there a blue arrow because you're no longer in the navigation app ... but are in google maps instead).
Any idea of how to get back to where I was?
Thanks a ton. This is the thing about my phone that I liked the most of everything (well, aside from SWYPE).
