TeleNav has me angry!
I was very happy with Sprint Navigation. I was actually impressed how well it functioned on my 9650. I have seen others using telenav with Android have issues while my turn by turn navigation was dead on. A week or two ago, I was notified there was an upgrade. I downloaded the upgrade and was left with regular telenav app. The one with the blue icon. I seem to have serious problems with it. My BB will freeze up halfway to the destination. Alot of times, it can't even find the bird and once it loses gps signal, it does not seem to be able to recover it again. It oftentimes cannot keep up with the driving and lags behind. I have deleted, and redownloaded repeatedly, and I cannot seem to find the a version of the older, Sprint Navigation app. Anybody know where I could find the older version?

You do know that telenav and sprint navigation is 1 and the same app don't you. It just isn't being called sprint navigation anymore.Just a trucker delivering the goods in which sometimes they are cell phones.

well in reference to your signature, it wasn't broke, so you tried to fix it?..
i have no issues with telenav, it works fine on my 9930 and for others i know, In your case, why not simply d/l google maps and try that?
Or if you want to purse a solution with your phone, sprint and telenav, do a wipe and clean install, get service books pushed and start from scratch..

I have a 9650 as well, and I saw the "new" TeleNav upgrade, but haven't updated the Sprint navigation.....it works flawlessly. After reading this Thread, I think I will just keep the old version. Thanks

Before I left sprint I was angry that normal apps were updating and causing lagging on the device. I called and called to get an early upgrade from my 9650 to a 9930 and the wouldn't budge. So I left them for att since my 9650 was running like crap.
I do miss sprint nav on my 9650 for free but I use bbtraffic for when I'm in a pinch and I'm lost.

OP i have sprint as well and a 9650 im not having that issue that you describe its working as well as the old one. I would try re installing it, and forget about the old version i used to have the .cod files for it but it would never launch the app after installing them so i don't think its even possible good luck

Mine was a forced upgrade - no choice. Was very weird. I now have no turn by turn on the screen, only voice and a map and the map is scaled way back and does not keep up with what is being said in the turn by turn. Also, I was told by Sprint that the 9900 wasn't supported in the old Sprint Navigation and that I either had to use Telenav or buy something else.

Thanks for the link. Tonight was the first night I used the app in a while and it asked me to download again and I started having problems. It stalled while driving to my destination and I had to close it out and go back to recent addresses to continue. I don't know what the deal is with it . Unfortunately, I don't want to download anything dealing with Google and that means Google Maps.
