    Default Google Maps and blue navigation bar at top of screen

    Anyone that has used Google maps will know that when you minimize the app it will still show a blue navigation bar at the top of your screen that you can tap to bring the app back to the top. We'll, at least for me this has stopped appearing and I have deleted and reinstalled the app several times and it still doesn't appear. This was very useful for a one tap action to bring the app back up. Has anyone experienced this or know of a fix?

    Are you certain that Google hasn't removed the feature from its Maps app?

    It's working for me. Aside from restoring your device I'm not sure what to tell you. The blue bar only appears when you're currently using navigation. Make sure you have location services enabled for Google Maps.

    Yes the blue bar still appears across the top. May I suggest delete, reboot and then reinstall. That has helped me in the past getting other apps to work properly...

    I guess I'm not certain. I've just noticed that sometimes it appears and sometimes it doesn't.

    I've tried those steps multiple times and it still seems flaky.

    One thing I've done is changed the location setting from "when using" to "always" (because I thought that would be helpful I guess). I'm going to change it back to "when using" and see if that makes a difference.

    Update: since leaving the privacy setting in the "when using" position I have not experienced the issue.
