    After adding an address to navigate to in google maps I choose "navigate" and then the screen goes black and it crashes after 20 seconds. Everything else works fine though.


    Anybody else, it was working fine last night

    Thanks

    Your battery may have gotten too hot and fried the gps chip.

    What an interesting answer! This has happened to me in the past few days too. Google Navigation crashed the phone yesterday and then I couldn't get the phone to stay more than a few seconds without crashing. Taking the battery out for a few minutes seemed to fix it. The phone had been in a GPS mount on my dashboard, in the hot sun... Though I've done that several times before with no problem. Is this permanent damage or should I just try to not navigate from a sunny dashboard?
