    Maps and Navigation Gone?

    a freind of mine texted me yesterday and said that her RAZR no longer has the Maps or Navigation app, to get home she had to download VZW Navigator app. All tech support would tell her was to factory reset. I'm guessing this had to do with the latest Maps update, so should she uninstall the update to see if it pops back, or is there a way to hunt for the apps?





    BTW: I did try to search and found nothing

    Mine disappeared as well. However, I still have a short cut to maps but no shortcut for navigation.

    When I open maps I can input my destination: to navigate to it but there is no shortcut. It now takes several steps

    Hmmmm... Still on mine.

    Is she on Jelly Bean? Rooted with a custom ROM?

    EDIT/UPDATE: Ahhhh... now I see what you are talking about. Apparently you got the update before I did. Got pushed the update the other day and now my "Blue Arrow" is gone too. However, as others have suggested, all you have to do is access navigation from within google maps now. IMHO, it does cut out some extra steps.

    If you still have the arrow you don't have the latest version. Its gone on the new version per Google data. Functionality is still there just moved around a bit.

    There are some changes....none that affect me too much so I can deal with it...ha

    When I updated to the new version of Maps the icons vanished from the home screen and all apps. I had to go to google play and start maps from there. The maps icon then reappeared in my apps. The new version of maps losses the navigation icon that used to exist separately. I like the old version of maps so I uninstalled maps and rolled back to the original factory version. I like Navigation with access to my contacts and voice search where I need them. The new version of Maps requires more hunting through menus to get anything done.

    I too also updated then tried to find my maps, couldn't find it. After some searching found out that the newest update dissent have that in there. And a work around is to open maps in your browser. Screw that. I went back to the stock app.
