    Can I say the update sucks!? I get a no network connection error when I enter a location. When I finally figured out how to just see a map (thanks google for making it like the iOS version, NOT) the map never loads, I just see an icon of my location.

    I saw someone mention clear cache, uninstall. How do I do that?

    Is there anyway I can get the old version back? It was perfect!

    YES! I went to the play store on my phone and told it to uninstall and I have the old version back! But I suppose it is the VERY old version without any updates before the most recent update, but hopefully it works the way I expect.

    If it works AT ALL I will be happy.

    Can't share the sentiment. The new version works wonderfully.

    As for removal, I see you already found out :)

    It would never lock on, I never saw a map, never got directions.

    Now that I know how to remove it, maybe I will try again.

    But why did they remove the "Go Home" button?

    Ok, I did the update again and now it works. Let me give this a go. Why the first update failed, I have no idea.

    Just something didn't installed right. Could happen, considering all the interconnection going on, allowing you to share location and all kind of things through so many others apps.

    Anyway, glad you got it working :)
