So, a while ago Sprint had it's own navigator application. Worked very well. Recently, they switched to using Google Maps Navigation. I like the App, layout and features, however I am running into an annoyance.

While in a GPS routed session, on the previous app, I used to press the power button to turn off the screen to save power. While the screen was out, navigation still commenced via sound with turn-by-turn navigation.

With the new app, Google Maps Navigation, It appears I cannot do this any longer. When I press the power button to turn the screen off, then try and turn it back on, , my directions/route is blown out. Google Maps is just sitting at the Start and Destination entries. I've also noticed that if I try and multi task while in a GPS Maps session, as soon as I return to Google Maps, the directions/route is also blown out.

I have verified with a friend of mine on Sprint with a Galaxy Note 2 (I have a GS2), this also happens to him as well.

Does this happen to you? Very frustrating.
