    For whatever reason my S4 keeps dying on me randomly. I've discovered that Maps is using like 40-60% of my battery and keeps the device awake even though I haven't opened maps or used it at all. I have since blocked the Keep Awake permission for Maps with App Ops, but the problem didn't go away. What could be causing this? I have maps on a S5 and that has no problems.

    Some pictures:

    Have you tried clearing the cache for Maps?

    Settings> Device> Applications> Application Manager> Scroll over to "all"> Scroll down to "Maps" Clear Data and Cache.

    You can also try disabling/reinabling Maps in application manager as well. Uninstall updates is another option.

    Compliments of one of our other Ambassadors: Tourbound129, if this works!!

    See if that helps!

    Thanks Chris,

    I have tried clearing the cache and data. First thing I did. I'm a bit reluctant to disable it completely, but if there's no other solution I will have to do that. I figured simply blocking the keep awake permission using App Ops should be enough, but it didn't work for some reason.
