Hi Folks, here are the results of a long problem I have had with MAPs and with the Market I have now found to be interrelated. For some time Market would crash and force close on me if I went to the downloads menu item. I would need to do a bare-metal restore of the phone to get the problem to go away. Then comes Maps updates. I use maps (not nav) alot. Several updates have happened over the months. After a week or so of use on the updated maps, MAPS would force close and crash every time you tried to use it. The only cure (short of yet another bare-metal restore) was to go to manage applications and remove Maps which really only removes the updates. Then maps work fine. However if you try and get the updates again in market, the minute it displays MAPS UpDate Available, Market Crashes with a force close. There are some things the 'Driod is not doing well, even though it does them Looks like yet another full bare-metal restore is in the works this week for me.
