Route creation, adding (including pinning and adding to home screen), and sharing works for me. From which ROM are you from?

i came from an older version of fresh. i think 3.3 or something. I solved the problem installing another navigation app (which is also good). So after install Here WeGo navigation app, google maps starts to working properly. Weird, but it's now working normally. Thanks for your reply.

Has anyone figured out how to enable encryption on this rom? I need encryption for work profile.
I have tried adding fileencrypt or forceencrypt flags in fstab, but that did not work.
