    I get an error message when I try and search for an address.

    "The navigation service is not initialized yet, quit current session and retry."

    Any suggestions. I rebooted. Tried the ##477#.

    Hoping not to have to DR

    Have you checked that GPS is enabled in the GPS app?
    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

    Yes, it is enabled. I can get my map location, but I can not get any sort of directions and my recently found places is empty.

    Sounds like the map app is the problem not the GPS...

    Are you using Google Maps or sprint navigation?

    Sprint Nav

    Hmmm. Sprint nav works like a charm for me. I just got a route to one of my favorites.
    NiceGPSuperior1 is a free GPS program, now with the ability to save your map! Get more info here. It's free! If you like this app and want to encourage development, you can donate from the web page link.

    NiceDrudgeReader is a fast, simple reader for The Drudge Report. It is only $0.99, so check it out, too! More info here.

    Search for "Nice" in the app catalog to see all my apps.

    I believe at this time that this problem is caused by using either Save/Restore or Pre Backup Utility.

    I have had this problem after a Dr. and then restoring my data and programs.

    Typically what "should" happen after a Dr. the first time you launch sprint nav it should ask you to enter your first and last name and email address. After the Dr. and subsequent restore using both of these programs it doesn't ask you to enter your name like it should so it may be a licensing issue or something along those lines..... I think....

    However, if after you Dr. launch Sprint Nav and login prior to restoring I believe this would fix the problem.

    Can anyone that has seen this error confirm if this scenario was played out?

    For anyone who gets this error in the future

    Delete the .db file in /var/palm/data/file_.usr.palm.applications.com.telenav.app.sprintnavigation_0/

    After launching Sprint Nav it will create a new .db file
