    Yes, my phone is only a few days old, but Maps uses 99% of my system resources, and before I shut GPS down, I couldn't even answer a call! I would like to know how to shut down Maps and just start it when I need it! I wrote this onmy regular computer.

    was this ever resolved? i tried google navigation today and almost threw my phone out the window on the freeway after the 4th or 5th crash. Once it would not even restart and i had to pull the battery to make it work again. WTF?

    Try going to "manage applications" and go to maps and clear data and cache.
