    Default Don't install Google Maps update on GB

    Background. I had incessant problems with Google maps on Froyo stock then on custom ROMs. Long story short since google maps 5 about 1 in 4 times of usage would completely crash my phone.

    So I updated to Gingerbread with the Maps 5.2.1 that came with it. For a week everything ran great. Today I installed the 5.3 and the first time I used Google Maps it crashed the phone and the second time it wouldn't lock on my GPS coordinates, which was fixed with another reboot.

    So the update is uninstalled and now im back in the stock Maps that came with Gingerbread.

    Just realized this is a different update than the one that I just did a day or two ago, I will have to install and give the new update and test it.

    Wish I was as lucky as you guys. Oh well, the 5.3 update was primarily about Latitude updates anyways.

    i know there was a thread of people having similar problems with Google Maps before. I guess there's just a "lucky" collection of us.

    Anyways, used my reverted (5.2.1) Maps all day today, no problems. Guess I just won't be updating my Google Maps.

    btw, this isn't an FC. This is the phone completely locks, then 2-3 minutes later it reboots itself....if I don't pull the battery first.

    FC. or not, I haven't had any issues at all including any lockup or reboot. have you checked to make sure your device isn't low on memory when this happens.

    Thinking about it, I have never used Google Maps on any phone I've had with it on. But I just checked and it's working ok.
    Yea, I'm still rockin' a Gnex. The signal strength/quality sucks, but hey, it's not two years old yet.

    Just curious - did you completely wipe your phone when you did the upgrade to GB?
    I ask, because I also had freezing problems with maps on Froyo. I did the upgrade to the rooted, leaked GB and haven;t had issues since. I did the maps upgrade as well, and still no return of my problems. I completely wiped the phone when I did the upgrade, and then reinstalled programs fresh rather than restoring a backup. If you did not do that, it may be worth a try.
    Full disclosure: I ended up not reinstalling EVERYTHING I had before, so maybe there was a bad program creating a conflict with Maps....

    Good luck.

    No problems here as well. I also wipe data and cache before installing any different rom.

    When going to GB I did a full cachd wipe then a data wipe. Google maps update is the ONLY thing to give me trouble since the upgrade. Otherwise I am extremely happy with GB. Another day of Maps use today and no problems.
