I rebooted my phone yesterday and now my Navigation is gone! Not the VZ Navigation but the other one (with the blue arrow). Is there any way to get this back? That is the only one I ever use! UGH....I am beginning to really hate this phone Smiley Sad...and THAT is NOT me!!

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 seems I still have the Navigation "Blue Arrow" on my Nexus.  It does open into the directions area of the Google Maps app now.  I have rebooted since the Maps update.

I still have the "blue arrow" for now too. The update is being rolled out by Google to all Android phones this month, but it's not being pushed to EVERYONE at once, so some of us still have the old version and some have the new version. Everyone will be on the new version relatively soon.

And yeah, the features are all still there, they're just part of maps instead of a separate app.

I have the new update installed already.  It was installed yesterday or the night before that.  I accepted the new terms and conditions of the Maps app yesterday and I rebooted the phone this morning.

Thank you for the reply. The person at the Verizon store this morning could not explain the reason for the original navigator  icon's disappearance. Fortunately you directed me to the little curve icon in maps. Unfortunately, my saved locations aren't saved with the upgrade.
