    Hello and welcome to Android Forums! :)

    You'd be best to ask the folks in Wildfire - All Things Root - Android Forums since you'll need to be rooted to do anything with Google Navigation. You shouldn't uninstall it, and I doubt it is a conflict with the Tom Tom app.


    Let me offer a word of caution. Many apps provide services for other parts of the OS and if you remove them, you can disable certain features or make your phone unusable. More importantly, system apps are not easily restorable like simply installing an .apk file. And once deleted, even a factory reset will not recover them. You will have to locate and flash a stock rom image to get them back. If you plan on rooting and deleting those apps, please check back here first before you do anything so we can make sure it's safe for you to delete those without any negative impact to your phone.
