Google Services just quits once in a while...
This is the second time that I can recall that Google Services popped up a notification that it could not load. This was when I was trying to use Google Maps to locate an unknown address in an unknown city...
Very aggravating, the phone became useless as a navigation device.
GPS was working like a champ, my two different address locators zeroed right in and reported the Lat/Long but when they tried to download a map.... nada, just a blank screen with a blue dot "there you are clod" and the coordinates.
When I got home, I fired up Kies 3 and restored "Location Services" back to day one. Lucky I made a full image copy back then when it all worked.
Every thing is hokey dokey now, but it is a PITA when it happens.
I thoughts are, that Google tried to do an update and something happened to interrupt that update.
