    Model Number: Milestone
    Firmware version: 2.1- update1
    Firmware configuration version: GAS_EMEA_USASHLS00RTINT_P016

    The handset has been popping what this message for a couple days: The application Maps (process com.google.android.apps.maps) has stopped unexpectedly. Please try again.
    I did not open Maps, nor Latitude on my phone. I did not root my phone, yet I this message pops up every 20 second, and is extremely annoying. I was only give "Force close" as the choice to end the message box. Nothing really happened after I click on "Force close" until the next same message pops up.

    Does anyone know how to stop this weird message?

    I had this and I do not remember what caused it, but I had to reflash the phone to get rid of it.

    Reflash as in...? Reset?
    Would I lose my apps and contacts?
    Can you give me some steps?

    I got the same thing with mine a couple of weeks back. I cured it by uninstalling all the Google maps updates (Settings > Manage Applications > Filter | All > Maps > Uninstall updates). A few days later I checked the market and installed the latest update.

    I suspect it might be the last update I installed wasn't playing fair with other updates. But since then Ive had no problems.
