I own a LG Optimus One with Android 2.2.2. Everytime I try to use the navigation provided by google, my phone remains stuck on Checking navigation availability. Is there a fix for this?

  • Wifi probably needs to be on, too.

  • You might try clearing the app data and/or cache and see if that helps.

It seems I was running the 5.0 version of google maps. I tried to search for an update on the market, but I couldn't even find the app. The most surprising thing was that using the exact search strings, I was able to find it very easy in the browser.

I downloaded the 5.2 apk, and I installed it from the SDCard. Afterwards, everything worked.
