Go to apps (it's the icon with 16 small grey squares, and it says Apps on it) to see the list of installed applications, then press on Maps.

HTH,

If you have turned on GPS (swipe down from the top of the screen, and select GPS), you can then use S Voice which is on your phone; say "Navigate to XXX" where XXX is a location; this will then fire up Google maps which will be used to plot your route based on your current location.

You can download a different navigation app if you don't like Google maps...Waze is quite popular...https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.waze&hl=en

Drive safely :)
