    Hi all,

    First post....

    Had a One X for a couple of days now - today it wanted me to update software - to Android Version 4.1.1 - Software Version 3.16.110.4 - which I allowed it to do.

    Once it restarted, it had added 'Power Saver' - but more importantly a few widgets have now disappeared.

    There was one in particular on the phone from before the update which I thought was very good....and I'd like it back, but don't know what it's called.

    It was on one of the swipe 'home' screens - it was about 1/3 to 1/2 of the screen size and showed a small framed map of exactly where you are with the street name below it - some kind of location widget. I barely got a chance to use it - but I seem to recall if you tapped it, it opened up full-screen Google maps? It's not in amongst the widgets now since the update.

    Doe anyone know what it is please - can I get it from the Appstore?

    Much appreciated.

    PS - It's early days, but I'm also pretty sure that the phone is running a bit slower since the update.

    Have a look under Widgets - is it the Navigate one?

    Not the Locations one is it? That's still there.

    Thanks for the replies guys - but neither of those. They are both full screen widgets.... the one I'm after is a fraction of this size. I definitely think it's gone off my phone widget collection since the update. I really need to find someone who has just recently got one of these phones prior to that update to have a look at what it's called.

    Hoping this link works - this is the original One X review from GSM Arena, page 3 the 'leap view' preview http://cdn.gsmarena.com/vv/reviewsimg/htc-one-x/sshots/gsmarena_011.jpg

    This is the page link if that didn't work. HTC One X review: eXtra special - GSMArena.com

    There is a widget shown on the small screen to the right hand side which looks like a map with text below it. I can't remember ever using this widget - and can't find it on my phone now. If this is it maybe someone recognises it?

    Thanks for the replies.

    Coos Lick (great name by the way!) - no, that's not a map type app....hard to see from the small image, but I'm almost certain that's not what I'm looking for.

    There used to be a stock livewallpaper which seems to have disappeared since jellybean update. It may have been that. The livewallpaper used to track your movements. I have no idea what it was called. Hope this helps.
