    i recently just rooted my phone to 2.0d and added the live wallpapers to it. well after i added the live wallpapers my google navigation wasn't working properly.. whenever i try to use it, it doesn't show my route like where i'm going. it looks like just a black screen in the middle and the voice doesn't work. here is a pic. sorry for the glare.

    This is one of the rare times I would use a task killer. Kill navigation and start it back up.

    This happened to me also so what I had to do was delete the Live Wallpaper. When I did that, google navigation started working correctly once more. There is a zip file you can download to undo the Live Wallpaper. I wish there was a workaround because I loved having the Live Wallpaper but not at the cost of losing something I need for work everyday.

    yeah.. I had the same issue with a different ROM... I could not get it to fix....

    had to go back to DC 2.08.1 ROM.
    Then install the LWP zip .
    it all works fine, but some LWP will not stay on. Some work perfectly. You will have to test it.

    good luck

    so i just found out a way to make the LWP work and the navigation together. go to this website: Fix: Another Rosie + LWP Patch (OpenGL) (+Undo) Geek For Me – Sprint Evo 4g & CDMA Hero and dl the first link and flash it then dl the second link and flash it for the undo patch for openGL and it should work. fyi, when you go to google maps it says force close so to use google navigation go to the navigation with the blue arrow icon and it will work with the LWP and show the picture. :)
