    I just replaced my HTC EVO 4G with HTC 4G LTE. I have always used the Google Navigation app. It works on the new 4G LTE although I did have to reboot the phone to get GPS to lock, but only once.
    My problem is that on my EVO, if I no longer needed Nav I could get a menu at the bottom by pressing the settings button at the base of the phone. The menu had an option to exit Navigation whether I'd arrived or not.
    Is there an option to exit Navigation before I arrive at my destination on the 4G LTE and if so, where do I find it?
    Thanks!

    Just press the back button, that should exit you out

    When I do that, the Nav icon remains on the status bar and when I open the status bar, I see that Nav is still running. Maybe this phone is different - of course, I remember the bad old days of inadvertantly leaving Nav running on my EVO and draining the battery.
    Is there an exit option anywhere?

    To get to that menu screen - if you haven't already found it - press the three horizontal lines in the lower right corner of your screen.

    In case you haven't read all the posts on this forum yet ;), the latest OTA update also gave us the option to map the recent apps button on the bottom of your phone to bring up the menu in various apps. You can read about how to set that up here.

    Just a thought. Not sure how long you've had the device, but cmruff, have you done a firmware and software update? In addition, are all apps up to date?
