Got my A1 yesterday and I'm very pleased, but it has a disturbing habit of crashing and continuously re-booting about 30 seconds after opening Google Navigator, Google Latitude, Google Maps, and Google Places. It REALLY does not like Google.
Any suggestions? Lenovo tech support has not been helpful. Thanks.

Go into Settings...Applications...Manage Apps...All... scroll down and tap Maps
remove any updates (mine is version 5.8 and so far all updates to maps caused crashes)

I "un-updated" my Google apps and everything works fine.
However (and I hate ot sound whiney), it seems really odd that Lenovo would not allow us to update these Google apps. With almost daily updates to Maps and Places, that really diminishes the value of the Google environment (SIGH).

It's not that Lenovo is not allowing us to update. The A1 has a bug in the GPS driver. Actually, there are bugs in other drivers as well -- namely, the wireless driver -- but the GPS bug is the only one they've sort of acknowledged.
The claim is that they're working on it. There's no timeframe for a fix.
