| | How do I really Exit an app? (VZ Navigator and Google maps conflict!)
Please Login to Remove!
I have a verizon 8830 with crippled GPS and got the $10/month VZ Navigator on it. The problem is, the VZ Nav can not obtain gps info if I have Google Maps running in the background. And if you have this same problem let me tell you, the verizon tech's response was that they have to open a ticket and have a technician repair my blackberry remotely within a week (a week after my roadtrip, thank you, veri$on!)
Simple,you'd say, just close Google Maps! Well, I tried and I tried! Exit from the menu seems to close the app, but VZ Nav still can't get to the GPS. A quick check in Options > Advanced Options > Applications shows both Google Maps and VZ Nav in bold (running).
So, my question is, how do I *really* close the instance of google maps which continues running after I "exit" from its menu?
I tried reset, incl. removing the battery. Still running. Only when I uninstalled google maps and rebooted the phone could VZNav obtain the gps signal.
I want GMaps for their listings and convenience. The gps on the phone is crippled to only work with verizon's crapware so I have to cash our the $10/m and use VZ Nav. Which doesn't work if I have google maps.
Oh, and feel free to call me stupid -- I am a Verizon customer.
