Hey guys. I dunno if I'm just missing something or what, but I can't find the blue triangle navigation icon anywhere on my phone. Not in the app drawer and I can't add it to any of the screens with a longpress or using the add button.
I'm talking about the icon in the screen shot all the way to the right here:

jccorbi, hope you don't mind me borrowing that image from you. Only one I could find of this.
Thanks for all the input. Update of maps added the icon. I'd been hesitant to update cause i read that the latest one was giving inaccurate my location readings. Mine seems pretty spot in though.
It seems the latest update to Google Maps (7.0) changed everything, including getting rid of the Navigation icon. You can see plenty of people already complaining about the update on the Google Play store:
This happened yesterday to me. There are so many people saying different ways to fix this. After trying several and after digging around this one fixed it!
I put the simple fix I used out on my blog. Hope this saves you some time. This was on my HTC one running stock Jelly Bean and I did not need to reboot -- Simple fix for blue triangle Google navigation app mysteriously disappearing
I was wondering the same thing, did the reboot n nothing... I did find out however that google maps nav has been incorporated in google maps so u dont really need to delete updates to get the icon back. I kinda like it better this way, GM & GMNav. in 1.
