    Did anyone else wind up with Sprint Navigation Lite after the upgrade to .6?

    Is it possible that it may be wireless plan related? I know with my plan Sprint Nav is included at no xtra charge.

    I use it every day and nothing changed after the upgrade to Android 2.2. Sprint Navigation version 2.8.0.1098 on my EVO.

    I called Sprint and they assured me that I could upgrade to Premium without a charge, since its clearly part of my plan.

    Thanks. I just did the upgrade to Premium and will follow up with Sprint also. Just curious, did those who had Lite do the leaked manual updates, including Pojoman's update to .6?

    just as a data point -

    I did the leaked .3 update and then the pojoman .6 image and have the full version as part of the base package; no upgrade necessary.

    I did the leaked .3 update and the OTA .6 update for .3 users. Haven't done anything to Sprint Nav.

    I just "upgraded" to Sprint Navigation Premium and it now has what it had before the 2.2 Froyo update and a bit more like traffic maps. It was the Lite version right after the update.

    I called Sprint and they assured me that this is included in my Simply Everything Data Family plan.
    We shall see.

    I have the same problem, are we going to have to "upgrade to premium" every month? I better not get charged $9.99 per month for this. I have the Simply everything data family plan too

    I had the same problem yesterday when I updated my prl, I just turned off my phone, waited a few minutes and turned it back on, that solved the problem for me. No problems since.

    I guess a lot of folks have had the same thing going on with the Nav....there is a 7 page thread over on Sprintusers.com about this.

    Mine reverted to Lite again. I am going into the Sprint store to get back to 2.1 and do the OTA.

    DONT GO TO SPRINT STORE!! I wasted 1 hour and a half, they have no idea what customer service is telling people and they can't do anything about rolling back to 2.1

    As an FYI, some Palm Pre users had a similar issue where the Sprint Nav reverted to a "lesser" state a couple months after activation. I saw the threads about this on PreCentral but didn't follow them since I wasn't having the same issue.

    I guess what I'm trying to say is that this may not be EVO/Android specific.

    After doing the profile and PRL update, the Sprint Navigation application worked fine again.

    Well, yesterday it was fine after I entered the application when I returned to my home Sprint location. No Lite or Premium designation, just Sprint Navigation. The difference seems to be the Service Plan Code (under Diagnostic Tools in Sharing and More). I will check out the SprintUser thread referenced above.
