    Unhappy Google Maps update gives black rectangle instead of location icon

    If you revert to an older version it works fine, but on my excite, I have auto-update on.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    thanks

    Go into the Play Store - My apps - Google Maps. From here you should be able to disable the auto-update feature. If not, then from the device: Menu > System Settings > Applications > All > Google Maps.

    I personally like the latest Maps. What problems are you having with the new Maps on your Excite?

    As the title of this post says: I see a black rectangle where the location marker should be, and the app crashes after a while.
