    A client of mine also has an Eris and I was helping her get her navigation system set up and teach her how to use it. I wanted to put the google navigator icon (the blue arrow) on her home screen but could not find it anywhere in her apps. I did find the google navigation (map icon) app and set that up for her. So, my questions are:

    What is the difference between the two?

    How come I couldn't find the navigator app on her phone (on mine, it's under "programs")?

    Is her version of Google Maps updated to the latest?

    I'm not sure. I just loaded the 2.1 OTA update on her phone today (the Eris is waaayyy too much phone for her--she had no idea about the update or what it did). I'm assuming that she will get an update notification for maps? I've had navigator for so long that I don't remember "how" I got it.

    open the google maps app, then tap on menue/more/about.. it will tell you what version shes running, 4.4.0 is the latest in the nexus one.. the blue arrow icon wasnt available untill two or three updates ago... if she hasnt installed the google maps market version she will not get updates notification for the app

    I can't find the blue arrow icon either, and I'm running 4.4.0 of the navigator app... is it possible that it's not showing up as a result of a root ROM I'm using? I really miss that little blue arrow...
