    not sure I am following what your issue is. By Home, are you saying you have a defined location that is "Home" and you cannot use it? the navigation function uses the GPS to take you from where you are to where you want to be. If what you want is directions, use Google Maps and the Directions button, not Google Navigation.

    Thank Pbrauer. Maybe my question is not clear. When I set up navigator at home my start point is my location or my address and the place I want to come is end point with address the navigator speak direction good from my house to the place i wanted. But when I driving back home I reset navigator from new location to home , navigator did not get direction and couldn't tell turn by turn.What is the problem? It's the same with Map.

    I am still not quite understanding what the issue is. You can't really use "Home" as a location for navigation since that is just a label. Try instead using current location as your start point and enter the actual address for your home.

    Yes, I did. I tried to type in start point is address where i
    stand and end point is my home address but navigator didn't get direction.Do you think Xoom can use as stand alone GPS or I have to sign up for services?

    The Xoom does allow for standalone GPS services.
