    Hi;
    Lately, while using google maps when driving, it will turn off.
    This never used to happen with prior phones.
    I have not changed any settings, etc.
    Is this a known and recent problem? Any fixes?
    I then have to turn phone back on, restart, etc.
    Thank you.

    Try free 'Waze' (in the Play Store).

    I don't think that is what he is needing, Waze is a Social App

    Waze is one of the world's largest community based traffic and navigation apps. Join drivers in your area who share real-time traffic & road info to save time, gas money, and improve daily commuting for all.Just by driving with Waze open, you're already contributing tons of real-time traffic info to your local community. You can also actively report accidents, police traps and other hazards you see on the road. Get road alerts on your route, and find the lowest gas prices around you with community-shared fuel prices. Plus, Waze makes it fun and simple to meet up and coordinate with friends on the road.

    That is the Last Thing I want on my phone.... but then, I live 40 miles away from any metro area... horses and cows don't need it.

    No, Waze is a navigation app first, and a social app second.
    Don't care for the 'social component'? Simply ignore it. Like I do.

    I was having the same issue prior to the latest updates. I had it running for 2 hours a few days ago and it did not shut down Navigation once. Looks like it was resolved in the last update.
