    What is the trick for putting navigation into 2d mode? Is this a function only available with JB? I haven't upgraded yet but use navigation a lot and to try it out to see if that would bug me. I didn't see how to go into 2d mode while navigating.
    You tap on the compass and it will change the view.

    We just got our EVOLTE's last Saturday. My wife and I are new to HTC and new to Sprint. One update pushed through but it was just a minor ICS update. Well, two days ago the JB update was ready. I went ahead against my gut feeling and did our updates. I had been reading this form and making notes of the "displeasure" of the update and the effect it's having on Nav. I use Nav a lot so I was very hesitant. I did it anyway and I got to tell you guys....so far so good!! No issues with maps or Nav. I tested it out three times so far including for an hour drive yesterday and no problems whatsoever. Guess I lucked out Love the camera update, btw.

    Glad to hear you're happy! The vast majority of phones have updated with no problems. That's what I hate about forums you almost exclusively see problems and not all the successes.

    What do people like better with Google Nav vs TeleNav?

    I just ask because Google Nav always gives me the shortest distance route with no way to select the fastest route (unless was added, haven't used it in a while). In some cases this can be a pretty big discrepancy in travel time as Google Nav will often send you across 25-30 miles of surface streets when you could add four or five miles and be almost all highway.

    Thanks for that. Didn't even think of tapping the compass. I set it to 2d, and then I upgraded to jb, and the setting stayed in 2d. I will be testing to see if nav crashes. Hoping it doesn't!

    I've always liked Telenav better, but Google Nav seems to startup and get going much faster, which is why I've started to prefer that.

    Hopefully not! It's such a bizarre problem. Hopefully it gets fixed eventually. Better than when I had my Epic, where after an update the GPS would only work for about 10 minutes then mysteriously lose its fix. It would only work again if you rebooted. Now THAT was an annoying problem!

    I stopped using it and switched to TeleNav. I'm not crazy about it but at least it's reliable.

    I saw Maps updated today, but I didn't bother to try Nav again in the 3D view. I'll try it and if it doesn't work, I'll just keep doing what I've been doing.

    I'm still upset about this! One of the reasons I got this phone. Using TeleNav but hate the screen.

    I've had this problem since I rooted my HTC One S and updated to JB. Shame on HTC/Google for no solutions.

    Found the update last night and used it twice this morning. Crashed both times.

    Not sure why Google can NOT get this basic function down on our phones.

    That's strange....I used it extensively today after upgrading this morning, and it didn't crash on me at all for the first time in ages....The only issue I have with the upgraded is that even though screen dimming during navigation rarely worked for me at all, it now no longer seems to be an option under the newer version of maps.

    I've had it a couple days, and it seems to work fine. also, i don't have the battery problem that I used to have, (draining battery - so I always had to remove the "update") and now it doesn't SEEM to be draining unnecessarily.

    The Google Maps update seems to have fixed the crashing issue for me as well. My only issue now is that the map seems to be redrawing the streets causing screen flicker while moving.

    Yes, this issue occurs for me as well, to varying degrees - sometimes it's worse, sometimes not so bad.

    I've noticed that before the update if I clicked on a contact's address it would open in Maps. Now when I click the address, it does nothing. :-/

    Just an FYI, I have had this problem with my Evo LTE since the JB update as well. I have been using Scout (well not using it since I don't like it). This Wednesday I was alerted to a new Google Maps update by the Play Store. I downloaded it and tried 3D Navigation just to prove it doesn't work... and low and behold it works! Finally!

    There is some flashing of the overlays on the screen (as someone else mentioned in this thread), but it is minimal. That is probably related to the fix since the 3D part of the navigation is what causes the crashing. Redrawing the overlays constantly is probably the work-around for the problem. I did notice that even with my phone plugged in the battery was slowly dropping and the phone was getting hot (though it was also in the sun in my car), so the fix might also use more battery than normal.

    Also (relating to the above quote), when choosing an address for navigation the app now gives you multiple route options to take. I think this is a new feature, though I haven't been using Google Maps Nav for some time because of the crashing so it might not be.

    I hope this update helps other users with problems as well.

    Now if I can find another free wifi tethering app that works with JB (unlikely) the phone will finally work as well as it did with ICS.

    I turned hardware overlay off, that fixed navigation unless I went to navigation via google maps. Google maps still crashed. So, I rebooted and after that, I have gone through the scenario several times and no crash. Then, I went to recent apps screen, removed google maps, restarted - now the problem is back again.

    Have seen several people claim replacing the phone worked. Is there a "magic phrase" to use with AT&T to get them to replace the phone due to this problem anyone knows of?
