    Here lately when I open Maps it completely shuts my phone down. Anyone else had this problem? I don't believe it has been updated lately that I know of and it worked just fine last weekend when I used it.

    We need to know, ROM, programs installed since it worked, etc.

    Got ya. Sorry.

    I'm stock 2.1 and haven't installed anything but updates for apps I already have installed.

    Handscent, ADW.Launcher, Websharing Lite, ASTRO, Slacker, and LogMeIn.

    I am not sure what could be doing it if you are totally stock.
    A couple things to try/look at.
    I don't know at what point the app crashes your phone, but if you are not "signed in" to GMapps, do so on your phone if it doesn't tank it right away. I have had freeze ups while accessing GMaps when not signed in.

    I am used to using nandroid to back everything up, so, at your discretion uninstall - reboot- reinstall and sign in to GMaps.

    Otherwise maybe GMapps is using too many phone resources and you don't have enough free memory and the phone reboots - or further, there is something wrong with the phone itself when put under load (CPU access +GPS, etc).

    After running Maps with the traffic layer for about an hour in the car, the traffic layer turns itself off and won't go back on. Anyone else? :thinking:
     
  6. Please define "completely shuts my phone down".

    Phone shuts off and I have to hold the power button to turn it back on.

    Yeah, It seems like it is working fine to me now. I haven't used it a whole lot, but I did open it a couple of times and all was well. Thanks for your help and the speedy answer.
