Pretty sure it is related to the video problems (screen tearing) as not everyone sees this issue. Perhaps it would work with the HW overlays disabled, but the problem seems to be with the Nav app, not GPS.
+1. Just wanted to confirm that the Navigation app works in the background as stated above. Unfortunately, I usually use the Nav feature visually, and not through the voice prompts. I like all the information about the next turn, distance, road inofrmation... etc.
I'll try disabling the HW overlays in the Developer settings. Anyone try this?
