    Default Google Maps Continuously Refreshing / Disrupting Experience

    I opened up Google Maps today on my ASUS Eeepad (201) and it was continuously refreshing to the point of being unusable.

    Very frustrating. Can't find much if anything on line, especially recently. It's an app I use a lot.

    Anyone else having the problem? Cold start did not repair. Considering a data wipe and total reboot to fix if I can't find any other option.

    Weird. Try clearing the cache and/or data under Settings/Apps.

    Wonder if this had anything to do with it:

    I am seeing the same issue on my HTC DNA. I uninstalled the updates, reinstalled updated, rebooted, cleared cache, everything. Not sure why it keeps refreshing and is useless right now. I even removed the last 3 apps I recently installed. HELP I need to use my Google maps.

    I am experiencing the same issue on my Galaxy S3. It is very annoying, it has rendered Local unusable.

    I had this happen once before and I followed the suggestions to clear the tile cache and it worked. This week it happened again and clearing the cache didn't help so I went searching for answers, and didn't find any. So I finally I went to "Manage Applications", selected the Map application, and clicked Update to get the latest version. It downloaded a new version and now the problem is gone! So I don't know if it's a bug that Google fixed, or if the simple act of updating cleared some setting or cache that fixed it, but at least it's resolved (for now).
