    I used the navigation function in the "car home" app this weekend for the first time. The nav. worked great. Voice directions were clear and actually helpful for a change and the gps kept a lock on me. However, I had to make a call to tell my friend I was going to be a little late, only to find out after the call ended that navigation was lost. Luckily, I remembered the address and re-started navigation.

    So two things, I suppose:

    1) Can you easily recall previous destinations?
    2) Is there a specific way to make/receive calls while using the app?
    - I noticed if I use use the back button and go through the car app (contacts, voice search) I can get back and forth from nav. to phone pretty well. But it still doesn't seem right.

    I haven't tried it while on a call yet, but if you press Home while in Navigation, you get a notification in the upper left that you can slide down to get back into Navigation. I know I was using other apps and Navigation kept running in the background. CDMA doesn't allow voice and data at the same time though, so I'm not sure if it will work or not while on a call.

    Both don't need to run at the same time. Just as long as it resumes after the call is made is fine.
