    Hi,

    I've recently noticed that Navigation will randomly minimize to the home screen. It's odd in that some trips it never does it, and other trips is will do it constantly, often every minute or two. It's annoying for a couple of reasons -- primarily because I now have to tap twice on the minimized picture to bring it back to full-screen, and secondly because when it's minimized it doesn't keep the screen on, which will eventually time out and turn off.

    I think this just started happening with Android 8, which has been running on my phone for a week or two (? -- I've lost track). I have a Pixel XL on 8.0.0, which reports it's up to date.

    In case anyone doesn't know what I mean about the minimized view, here it is:

    Any idea how to stop it doing this?

    Thanks,
    Toby.

    That's the picture in picture mode. To turn it off for maps (or any app that can use it) do the following:

    Go to settings
    Then Apps & Notifications
    Then Advanced
    Then Special App Access
    Then Picture in Picture
    Turn off the ability for maps or any other app.

    Done. Awesome, thanks!

    Just to satisfy my curiosity, any reason why Android might have been driving the Maps to go pic-in-pic?

    Notifications, maybe? Other than that, I really don't know. Haven't messed with the PIP thing much.
