i have a relatively new iphone and i am just now getting around to trying to troubleshoot the fact that i am not able to navigate (for instance in my truck) the way i am used to. i used to be able to do this handy little thing where i got an actual route (a blue line) on a satellite or combo view and it was uber handy. there was also a great little pinging blue dot that told me where i was.


all of this was fantastic.


can anybody straighten me out on what i have now and/or what i could have?


/currently/ i see both a BLACK and WHITE icon for "google maps" /and/ a COLOR ICON for google maps. but neither of these apps gives me what i remember having on my iPhone 4. is it there and i am just finding the new UI difficult? i mean, it does seem to be a totally new UI. can i get my old one back easily? or should i just study up on using the new interface.


can i DELETE one of these icons?


also, i have downloaded WAZE as i have heard good things about it but i have not used it.


anyway, the old app seems like it did me just fine and i am feeling - well - literally a bit lost these days.
