    I own a LG Optimus 4x HD, running Jelly Bean 4.1.2, 20a-EUR-XXX, stock, non rooter, and I'm based in Australia.

    Does anyone know or have similar issue with Google Maps: from the Play Store I can only get version 6.14.4, no later version available.

    I have installed 7.2 (and 7.3 yesterday) however, these are via .apk (from Android Police) not from the Play Store, and are very unstable for my device (Maps 7.x keeps flickering when entering Navigation and eventually crashes).

    When I uninstall the update from 7.x back to 6.14.2 it then tells me that there's an updated Maps from the Play Store, when I go to update it, it shows me the screenshots (in the Play Store) of the new version (7.x) but when I update it, it is in fact an update only to 6.

    I've researched this on the net for a while and the only similar reoccurrence is a month or so back with some Galaxy S owners which were having the same issue, but it seems that they were then able to update it to the latest version in mid September.

    So has anyone had a similar experience?
    Or is anyone able to supply me with an .apk for the LG P880 specifically (if such thing exists)?

    Thanks in advance,

    You really do not want the Google Maps Update.
    It kills the Navigation and Locate apps.
    Uninstall the Google Maps from your phone (settings).

    yes I am already running 6.14.4 however I actually like the functions and layout of 7.x, unfortunately though it's not stable for my device.

    Locate app i don't really use
    navigation, works just fine (in terms of functions) apart from the fact that it constantly crashes on my device...
