Where did the Navigation App go on my Galaxy 3 Tablet?

So, I bought the Samsung Galaxy 3,  7″ tablet and was checking out the applications. The following day, I could no longer find the blue arrow icon for navigation.  I searched everywhere with no luck.  Turns out I am running Android 4.1.2 Jellybean with Google maps installed.  When the system updated, the navigation app is now in Google Maps.  This feature is actually pretty cool once you get used to it.  Google Maps now gives the option to enter locations and choose icons for driving, walking, bicycle and bus.  I was quite impressed when I selected the bus icon and got directions with bus numbers and schedules…pretty cool!  So, if you are running Jellybean Android 4.1.2 and your navigation icon disappears then have no fear; it’s just a cool update.
