google maps crashing ALL the time - GPS issue?

google maps is crashing all the time, at least 4-5 times when I first start it and its trying to load the map images.

After that it gets more stable, but not really.

 

I strangely feels that it has something to do with the GPS problem. It definetly crashes when I hit the button for current location.

 

I tried to unupdate and all, but no real improvements. besides I really want to be up to date!

 

Anyone having the same issues?

I gave up and started using Mapquest.  It doesn't crash.

The problem apeared to me as well...
The solution is to uninstal the last update that you made on google play (market). Try that pls.

Mine was crashing this morning. I don't know if it was because I turned off the GPS, but it has stopped crashing now.

Re: google maps crashing ALL the time - GPS issue?

today came another update. downgrading can't be a permanent solution.

 

I can also confirm that turning on/off gps doesn't affect crashing. it still crashes.

I had this Maps crashing problem after Lenovo OTA upgrades or when there was a Maps update. Came up with the following instructions that work for me;

 

1. Ensure Google Maps (GM) is not running.

 Settings -> Applications -> Downloaded -> Maps
 Force Stop (if not grayed)
 Uninstall updates

 

 Settings -> Applications -> All -> Maps
 Force Stop (if not grayed)
 Clear data

 

2. Run GM (Lenovo installed version) and confirm no forced closes.

 

3. Ensure GM is not running.

 Android Market -> My Apps
 update Google Maps
 uncheck "Allow automatic updating" if checked

 

4. Run GM (updated version) and confirm no forced closes.

 

Sometimes it would crash once or twice after doing the above but stable thereafter. Your mileage may vary.
