    As it says in the title, I click on the Google navigation icon and it will not work. It goes to the screen where I choose the location info stuff and then after that, nothing. Any ideas?

    Ok, so I had to go to maps and get that running and then hit navigation from there, punch in address and force it to navigate from maps. After I had done that I could then close it, go back to the icon and then launch it from the icon. I don't know why it wouldn't work before but it's good now.

    I have had the D1 and D2 before this with no similar issues before.

    Something is definitely going on with navigation. My battery ran out last night and when I recharged it is telling me I'm in Seattle Wash. (I'm in CT) -- Google earth tells me I'm in CT but verizon says I'm not -- can't use the verizon settings for time either - puts me in the pacific time zone. Did a hard re-set and nothing... verizon is checking it out "and will get back to you..." Anyone else?

    Does the thunderbolt suffer from the same problem as the incredible, I wonder. Where if you switch batteries or let the battery die, there is a chance something corrupts and causes a whole host of issues.

    The only fix on the incredible was flashing. Factory reset did not help.

    A friend was having issue with his Google Maps Navigation doing nothing as well. Running the marketplace update for Google Maps fixed it for him.
