Default Maps crashing my phone

HI, my maps app updated itself last night and now it crashes a few seconds after opening it or the navigation app. I cleared the maps data, that didn't help, and I uninstalled and re-installed the update, and that didn't help. I have a Rezound with ICS, not rooted. Any help would be met with much appreciation!

Crashing for everyone on ICS with Rezound. Temporary fix is to remove updates, otherwise we just have to wait for Google to fix it.

Anybody know what the prior version for Maps was?

When we upgraded to ICS we got a newer version or just that the ICS version was different.

I am asking so I can try to find the .apk online and remove all updated and install the prior version onto the phone.

thanks.

Just use the 6.3.0 included in the ROM, it works fine, anything prior to 6.10.0 should work OK though.

Thanks. I did uninstall back to 6.3.0 but the navigation is not what I had on my Rezound after ICS. When I got ICS the Navigation was totally different. It had a "Go Home" feature that you could program your home address and the voice was a much better, less robotic voice.

I guess I can deal with this until Google corrects it. With their track record I am guessing it should be quick.

Damn, I just sent my wife out on a 6 hour trip and set her phone up for the trip by pairing it to the car (BT). As soon as she launched Nav, the phone kept rebooting. She had to get her friends standalone nav unit so they could navigate. I thought maybe it was too hard on the phone to be streaming Pandora while navigating, but it would crash (do a soft reboot back to the boot animation, not the HTC logo) as soon as I opened maps and started navigating. Then it would mess up the BT radio as it wouldn't toggle on/off and froze at "turning on", so I had to do a hard restart to get BT to work again.

It's awesome that as soon as she leaves, I come here to see if someone has posted this issue and it's the top thread! lol. I called and told her I think I can fix it for her next time she stops and I can talk her through it. So I just have to tell her to go to settings > apps > Maps > uninstall updates (just going off my memory for the settings), then she'll be good, right? She's totally stock/unrooted with the ICS update.

Thanks!

That will work until Google fixes it, just remind her not to update if she gets a notification.

Here's another link for the old version of Maps:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/mpnuwq1sxxurdce/com.google.android.apps.maps.apk

And the link came from the neomax thread on xda, so I know it works.

It crashes mine too. I just removed all updates and it works with the initial factory settings. I quess we have to wait till the next update and see if that fixes it.

This is getting normal now for updates. Pretty soon there will be enough updates so that the phones will not work at all.

Maybe this is a terrorist plot from apple to make us switch to iphone.

I'd been too busy to check on this till now and was thinking I'd have to hard reset, since I skipped that step after the ICS update. Glad to know there's an easier fix.

(and before anyone says so, yes, I know I should hard reset anyway. Just haven't had time)

I had the same issue (phone rebooting) and a buddy told me to clear the cache in the apps settings and it worked! Hopefully it's that easy for all of you.

Tried clearing the cache after updating back to the newest version & started crashing phone again. So uninstalled updates again & works fine.

For some reason I had trouble linking this, so had make a short url:

Google Maps 6.9.2

It's safe, works fine, and is the latest working version for the Rezound.

EDIT: This site contains TWO download links, the first just takes you to the market, the second one is a local download from APK Top. Make sure to use the second one.

There are two links there, use the second one that says download from APK Top.

(I don't know why, but every time I try to put APK and Top together, this site blocks it just fills anything containing that with ****** like it is a swear word or something)

I knew that this was a bigger problem than just me considering i JUST got the ICS update. It made me late for a semi-app i had.. and it was very aggravating. One difference for me though is that I got my Google Maps update a few days ago and it was all good. i played with it. i tested it. i used it. all good. Then last night i got the long awaited ICS update. This morning i tried to use google maps and all i got was reboot reboot reboot.
I, like somebody mentioned above, downloaded Waze (because i knew of it and had used it before) and it got me to where i needed to go. i don't have time to figure out all that uninstall update this this that. it can sit there until they fix it, i guess.
Unfortunately, ICS update messed up more than my Maps; also stock Calendar, i can't seem to create folders anymore, and everytime i download an app it goes onto my regular screen.
*sigh*

Some interesting info for you, the latest Rezound software, 4.03.605.2, seems to be working with this latest maps version. I too had problems with maps crashing my phone and also the traffic widget didn't work, just flashed the 4.03.605.2 RUU and all works now....if your looking for the RUU, I don't have the link in front of me but if you google rezound 4.03.605.2 the android police link will come up

Ok...let me get this. Google pushed an update to their crown jewel app that turned out to make it useless to countless HTC phones. Now here we are, five days later, and no fix?! Lame.

In Google Play Store -> My Apps, each app has a "Allow automatic updating" check box. Uncheck this for Maps.

Just know it will remind you that you have an update everytime you turn the phone on.. Just dont download it again and you should be fine. I have been ignoring the "updates available" for almost a week now..LOL

You can actually go into setting in the market and uncheck the box for "notify me of updates" Then you won't get anything.

Has anybody on this thread seen this crash with the Global update that rolled out after ICS on the west coast? I see #3 on that changelist is "Lock up"...

I am running 4.03.605.2 and have no maps problems, I did with the first OTA that came out. The global OTA is 4.03.605.1 but I skipped over that one so I'm not sure if it works

It is probably been filtered due to the site being spammed here... that or they host pirated material... not sure

Seriously, it is not that big of a deal, annoying as hell... but not terrible, just uninstall updates and it's fine, sideload 6.9.2, or switch to Waze. Or if you feel a little more adventurous, switch to the 4.3.605.2 RUU firmware, it is very stable and everyone who has used it thinks it is 10x better then the current version, fixing not only the Maps issue, but improving battery life, reducing the "heat" issue, reducing lockups, and is just smoother overall.

I'm another person that had problems with G Maps rebooting my launcher. Unfortunately, it happened to me on the first day of travel to an unfamiliar area. I have never been more angry at my phone and I've never regretted relying on a smartphone more than I did a week ago. Of course I didn't know about this thread and I had to figure out on my own that it was G Maps doing it. I found this out AFTER doing a factory reset.

Thanks for the tips. I feel adventurous. I was wondering if you might give me the starting point on switching to that RUU firmware? I am currently on CleanRom 4.1 with the unlocked bootloader and rooted. How do I get to the point that I can do what you're saying? Any information is appreciated.

There are several threads on it, I have not done it on the Rezound, but I know you need to relock the bootloader first. I would use one of the All-In-One toolkits or you can boot into hboot and issue the command 'fastboot oem lock' via adb. I am pretty sure from there you can just load the RUU, remember you will lose root and custom recovery (AmonRa, TWRP, CWM) too.
