    Perhaps there's such thing out there as Google Maps Lite that somebody has made..!??!

    How are you all handling Google Maps? Opening it takes so long now - most of the time it freezes and sometimes even restarts the phone. I feel like it's gotten extremely bloated lately.

    Is anybody else having this issue? Any alternatives??

    Try clearing the data and cache for the Maps app. I use it quite a bit and never have a problem.

    Nah, I disagree. While clearing the cache will help, it's still become a bloated app. Too much BS integration with ancillary systems that I'll never use. I wish the options could be unselected. It definitely doesn't run as cleanly as it did many versions ago. Nonetheless, it's still my favorite app on the phone.
