    Haven't used Google navigator in a while -- but when I last used it, I seem to remember a bar across the top that, when you scrolled to the right, allowed you to select "contacts". I had to use Nav this weekend and now, there is no such bar!

    I went to a LOT of trouble to save destinations as contacts and really do NOT want to have to do a Google search every time I want to use Nav again. Is that what it's come to? OR am I missing a feature that I did not see?

    Google just had a huge update to maps, and a few features have been lost along the way.

    There have been a few coming back, so hopefully your feature will as well.

    Yes, as of now it is no longer a feature. The way to add it is by adding the paid version of "MyAtlas-Google Navigation Ext" This is a lousy alternative but the only one that I know of.

    I found out that, by typing the first few letters of a Contacts entry, you can still use Contacts, as Search includes them.
