Calls kill navigation - Sprint TP2 stock ROM

I did some searching and haven't found any info on this, but I might have missed something.

I just started using the Navigation function on my Sprint TP2 recently, and while it seems to work well in isolation, as soon as I make/receive a phone call (using a bluetooth hands free system), the nav system seems to stop working, among other problems.

Firstly, the phone doesn't go back to the Nav when the call ends, and I have to manually exit the call screen. That's a hassle, but not a deal killer.

More importantly, nothing navigation related seems to happen when I'm in the call. No directions are issued, the map appears not to be updated, etc. Sometimes exiting the call screen puts me back to the map, with the location indicator lagging WAY behind my current location. Sometimes it tries to "catch up", lagging behind, sometimes it is frozen in one location. Sometimes, it just dumps me out of the nav app (back to the 4 choice screen - Drive To, Search, etc.).

In any event, this makes the nav system totally useless if I have to take or make a call. I can't believe I'm the only one who has run into this. I would hate to have to buy a dedicated GPS after selling the wife on the idea that the phones have one built in.

Are there any fixes/solutions/tips towards resolving this?

Re: Calls kill navigation - Sprint TP2 stock ROM

that's because your sprint nav uses your data connection. cdma devices can't talk and and do data at the same time. once your phone call ends, your data connection resumes and your gps will work fine again. so unless sprint is willing to update their protocol so we can talk and surf at the same time, there's no fix.

Yes, while the gps radio can function while on a call, the app needs CDMA to display and update your map. That is why you seem to lag behind after hanging up. That is also why the Nav app is so small; the maps aren't stored on your phone but it pulls it from the interwebz.

OK, that's understandable. Unfortunate, but understandable. I guess that means that the GPS is basically useless for real-world applications, at least for me.

Well, you could always just not make a call until you get where you are going.

Just use mapping software that does not use your data connection. Then you will have no problems.

Re: Calls kill navigation - Sprint TP2 stock ROM

Another vote for Garmin XT. Works great. I use it while I'm riding my motorcycle. Phone call comes in, pauses nav, finish call, lady starts talking again. A real necessity since I can't constantly be pulling over to reset the phone. Also lowers music to give directions. Great program.
