    Hi guys, first the stat box:

    Android Version: 2.2
    Network: Vodafone/H3G UK
    Taskiller Used?: quick task killer
    [Optional]Are You rooted & which Rom: No
    Issue: Navigation overriding music player, but no longer returning.

    Okiedoke, this may sound like whining, but here we go. On 2.1, my beautiful Desire which I love very much would happily play music in the background whilst using the navigation (and I do a lot of driving, relatively), override it to tell me to turn or similar, and then reinstate the music as it would for a phonecall.

    Since upgrading OTA to FroYo, it no longer reinstates the music. I'm a bit pressed for space for apps as most of mine won't transfer to the SD card, but have read that Winamp may solve this. I'd rather not though.

    I also have a motorola Defy which does NOT have the same issue, but after going through 2 Defys due to the ear-speaker issue, I'm loathe to regularly plug the jack cable into the top, and my Voda sim which lives in the defy has far less data than my 3 sim, so ideally I'd be using the Desire for pratnav.

    I'm really, really hoping there's some idiot-proof option in some settings or other, but I haven't found it yet despite quite a lot of searching. I even asked the HTC rep that comes round our shop to ask the tech guys back at his office (I work in a phone shop) but he hasn't gotten back to me.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
