Push android application to background

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – Is it possible to push an application to the background through an adb command? I have an application which calls google navigation and I want push google navigation to the background using an adb command. I don't want to just go back to the home screen, I want make sure the app which called google navigation remains on the foreground. So far I have: adb shell am force-stop com.google.android.apps.maps But the above command force stops the process instead of pushing to background. (HowTos)
