I have lost the icon for the free navigation on my phone.  I used to be able to press a icon called navigation that was free on my phone but since the last update I had its gone.  I went into the Verizon store near me and they said I have to call tech support to find out what to do.  Does anyone know what happened to that Icon?

It was combined into the Google Maps update.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Of course, the downside is that you lose the new enhancements/updates to the Maps app.

I also learned that my phone kept auto-updating and I had to keep uninstalling the newer version of "Maps" which replaced "Navigation".  I have since learned that you can go into "Play Store" , then Settings and uncheck the auto-update apps. I hear the newer Maps is suppose to be better, but I am so used to Navigation...just so easy to pick it up, speak the address and it goes, that right now I don't want to try to learn a newer version.
