    Hey everybody. Been lurking since January. Love the site.
    Searched for a solution to this, but was unsuccessful. I got the OTA on Saturday and noticed that I had a program called "Navigator" and a program called "Navigation". Navigation had a blue arrow icon. Yesterday I had to do a factory reset and now I am unable to find the "Navigation" shortcut. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks!

    It'll come back. I'm honestly not sure what triggers the blue arrow app (forget the name) Update Google Maps and reboot. I think that does it. Don't worry, it will show up again.

    EDIT: Yup, just tested it. Update google maps (via the market) and reboot.

    Yes, it's related to a newer version of Google Maps. As most have discovered, after updating to 2.1 by however means they arrive there, the installed version of Maps is out-dated and your phone soon prompts you to download/install the current version from the Market.

    If your phone is elegible and capable of running the latest version of Google Maps, the update will appear in the Market.
