    Default Can't remove Default App setting for Google Maps Navigation

    I have started using Waze for my GPS navigation needs. The problem is, I had previously told my phone to use Google Maps Navigation (or simply "Navigation", the one with the blue arrow icon, instead of the other option at the time which was TeleNav GPS Navigator), but I can't seem to remove that default app setting.

    I have gone to Settings->Applications->Manage Applications->All to look for the Navigation app and clear "Launch by Default" setting, but it does not appear in the list of apps at all.

    Is this a thing about Google apps, that they are kept hidden and forever locked into being your default app once you tell it so? I thought maybe it was part of the regular Google Maps app, but the setting there says there are no defaults set to be cleared.

    I just looked through everything and couldn't find anything either.

    I was in a similar situation in the past, where I wanted some 3rd party app to be used as the default instead of a stock app. If I recall, I ended up clearing the defaults in the 3rd party app and I was prompted next time to chose a default app to use. You could try clearing out the defaults in Waze. I have no idea if it'll work, just a thought.

    Im using waze too and I like it enough to make it my default nav app as well but it doesn't seem to let me choose it either. Samsung S3

    Google's Navigation app is built into Maps, kind of like a two in one package. You may want to try clearing the defaults in Maps and see if that helps you.

    I don't use Waze, but I looked at it and it sounds interesting. I drive for a living and have a stand alone GPS specific to my needs, but I may check Waze out at some point. How heavy is it on data usage?

    I have a Samsung galaxys4. Go to settings - application manager and select the default navigation app. Scroll down and click 'clear default' button.
