    Thanks, that's one of the many things I left off my list

    I noticed this too while fiddling with Maps the other day. I was hoping you could use the Step-by-Step list to access arbitrary waypoints and use streetview to get an idea of what you'd be seeing at that point on your route. The old Map/Nav apps had this feature. I vaguely remember using it a couple of times in an unfamiliar city to take a look at a highway interchange or complex intersection. I just booted up my old Droid Incredible and confirmed that the old apps had this capability.

    Hopefully Google will add this feature back.

    I just noticed my Navigation is gone. I used it frequently and really miss it.

    It's not missing but it's not as good as it was. I uninstalled the update. Didn't care for the new version, terrible to see in my dock.

    I had to go in and uninstall updates on the Googles Maps which is connected with the Navagation app and now it is working great.

    I couldn't get the new updated navigation to work at all, so I uninstalled the new updates and it's working fine again

    Thanks. Unfortunately, when I tired to use the updated app the first time I was on a trip and did not have time to play with it so I uninstalled it.
    Now if google would only FIX the app so it would not CRASH EVERY TIME I try to speak the names in my contact list. That would make the app MUCH more useful for me.

    UGH! Google Maps just took me to the wrong place. Even after I entered the address. Well, I suppose I could have parked in front of the house, walked through their backyard, climbed a retaining wall to get to my destination which was on a different street.

    I was a bit stressed this morning when I tried checking Navigation for the day camp I needed to drop my daughter off at only to find Navigation gone, along with the address I had entered 3 weeks ago. Thankfully I had time to get the address and enter it into the updated version (Google Maps), and it failed on getting to destination.

    I'll be working on getting the old version back.

    Greatly appreciate all the tips and advice from everyone

    You have auto update set to on, in Google Play settings.
    Go to Google Play, open settings, and Auto Update on/off are on the first page.

    Barblau.
    When you open Maps, tap on the Head & shoulder icon in the search bar.
    Every address you have ever used is listed there.
    Every search you've ever done is there.
    They are in order by Time, newest first.

    First card is Recently saved places
    Second card is recently accessed places
    If it doesn't show up on either of those cards, tap view all at the bottom of the cards.

    Default Re: Navigation App missing after Google Maps Update

    Am I right in thinking that the integration of this Beta navigation into Google Maps isn't real-time while in motion like the old blue navigation icon app was?

    And if this is the case then for Google to put out a beta which doesn't have the real-time navigation is plain stupid, having said that was the old Navigation application from Google or was it nothing to do with them? I am sure that on my phone it was pre-installed.

    Edit:

    The un-installing the Maps updates didn't help for me, all it did was to remove the original map icon and in it's place were 2 Android icons, the first one if hit on took me to a message about the new beta and I had the choice of opening it which I refused, and the second similar android icon would open the previous version of maps only, so this for me anyway didn't put back the older nav icon with the blue arrow. I use the Samsang Galaxy Ace 2 which I just upgraded to JellyBean yesterday.

    Stupid question, I know.

    How do you clear the new map? I used the "navigation" feature and now I can't get rid of that destination at the bottom of the map.

    Tap the Back Button, or icon on your phone, then,
    Tap the X in the search bar

    The Navigation is in real time just like the old version, my wife uses it every day.
    Are you saying your location icon didn't move as you traveled?

    All Google apps are Beta.
    When you first open any version of Maps, (new or old) and start to use Navigation.
    You got a pop up box telling you it was Beta, you could not continue until you agreed, you could also check a box to not show this info again.

    Perhaps it's been awhile since the first time you used whichever version you were used to.
    But the Beta message was there.

    I think the feature referred to here is the moving Navigation map with no set destination. It's not a big deal to me but I could see how some would miss it.

    Thanks for the explanation.
    I've never used that feature, and I never saw a need for it.
    But I know everyone uses their tech differently, and just because I don't see a need, doesn't mean there isn't one.

    PS. I had to go out and drive around to see what you were referring to.
    I still use version 6.14.2 on my phone.
    Version 7 on my tablet, and wife's phone.

    Still trying to see what I prefer

    I've got version 7 on my S3 and Nexus 7 and 6.x on my old Droid Inc. There's a few things I miss from the old maps (mentioned above so I'll won't beat that dead horse) but I like the look and feel of the new version.

    For my purposes, I would be happy with either version to be perfectly honest.
