    So everyone hates the Sprint Navigation because it constantly runs and drains your battery... agreed... but I don't really feel like rooting my phone if I don't have to so here's the dilemma and question.

    Dilemma: Sprint GPS seems to be the default GPS to for the web broswer to use. Because of this an app like Zombie Run's Multiplayer, cannot communicate with GPS satellite's it's set up for because the phone is connecting with Telenav (hypothesis, but Verizon phones locate gps and sprint does not)

    "About:Debug" in a web browser only gives the option to use gps or not.

    Is there anyway to select which GPS program you want the web browser (or phone in general) to use?

    For the phone, clear the default of Sprint Nav then in maps it will ask you which to use when you click navigate.

    I think that will work, don't have it to test
