Maps updated, stock navigation app gone

2013-07-17, 22:58 PM


It appears google maps updated today 7- 17-13 and the stock navigation (the blue arrow) is no longer on my phone.



Anybody else?



Thanks

 In the Maps app, if you touch Maps at the top left,  you should get a dropdown menu and Navigation is a choice.



At least, that's the way it works on my Razr.  I don't have an HD.

I posted this over on Verizon:



"Navigation is not gone it's now part of Maps.  The recent update to maps removed the blue arrow Navigation icon.  Go to Maps and touch the little curve icon in the search bar or search for a place."

It disappeared for me as well. I can use the maps app for it but I don't like it nearly as well. I really liked the old pine. The speak to it worked really well and I liked the go home feature. This one has some nice features but I like the other one better as far as convenience goes.

You can, if you want, go back to the previous version. Just go to Settings>Apps>All>Maps>Uninstall updates>OK. That is it. You should now be on the previous version with all the other apps and widgets at your disposal. hope this helps.

Thank you so much for the information. I have been wanting to look for a way to return to the previous version but I only just now got around to looking for the reason it disappeared, I wasn't sure if it was really from the map update or not.

You're quite welcome. You will also want to make sure that you go to the Play Store and make sure that the Maps app is set to NOT auto update. Everytime it updates, you will have to go back in and Uninstall updates. that could get a little old. Hope this helps.
