Download Maps Issue
I have searched and wasn't able to find anything - please point me in the right direction if there are already threads about this.
On a daily basis I get 2 notifications appear on my phone (and they've been appearing for the past 2 months or so). The 1st is 'Map Update Required - Tap to download the latest maps'. The 2nd is a Location Download warning - I assume warning me that a lot of content is going to be downloaded.
When clicking Map Update Required it takes me to a 'Download Maps' page where countries are listed (broken into regions of the world). For some reason the maps for United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Albania and Andorra have green progress bars next to them.
I've sat on wifi on a numerous occasions allowing these progress bars to complete, but the following day I get the same notifications and the same attempts to download the same maps.
I've tried clicking the progress bars which gives me the options to cancel or pause the download. However clicking neither of these seems to make any difference.
FWIW I'd expect to be downloading the United Kingdom maps as this is where I'm based - however I've never knowingly selected anything to do with Ireland, France, Albania or Andorra - I certainly have no need for these maps.
Anybody got any advice for how to get out of this never ending cycle. I've not got any mapping software on my phone other than the in-built Google Maps app.
Using an HTC Desire Z and think I'm on Android 2.2 (certainly never 'rooted' it or done any other experiments with it).
