    I used to be able to open up a contact on my HTC One, click on the address of the contact which would then launch Google Maps and zoom into the contact's address. I just noticed this weekend that tart feature stopped working. When I click on a contact's address now, nothing happens.

    I wonder if this anything to do with the latest updates to Google Maps... I just tried the same thing on my wife's HTC One X and it still works. So I guess it is some incompatibility with Sense 5 and the new Google Maps?

    Is anyone else having this problem on their HTC One?

    Now you do that from within the Maps application. Open Maps, then click the turn arrow looking button next to the search bar, and start typing in your destination (or contact, it'll auto fill if there is address information). Then you'll get your turn by turn directions.

    This happened with the latest Maps update. I posted the same thing awhile back.

    Even by going backwards and opening Maps first and clicking the Arrow then search, the search engine does not properly search your personal contacts. I tell Maps to
    search for one of my contacts by name and it gives me a person in another state. This is a terrible mess up by Google. All major smart phones can click on your contacts address and it takes you to a turn by turn situation. For Google to have messed this up is a huge blunder. I have gone back to my iPhone to get this basic feature. My Blackberry and iPhone have this feature and for working people this is a must have feature. IMHO

    PS, I tried deleting the update which took away the feature but by the next morning, the update was back on the phone. Now I cant use any Android until Google decides to correct this mess.

    You can turn off 'Automatic Update' for the app in the PlayStore. Maybe you can use it without updating then.

    Same problem here. I removed all updates to Maps to resolve the problem. I agree, this latest update losing the most basic features, i.e. searching contacts or clicking on a contact's address to pull up the location on Maps, is nuts. I've been giving Waze a spin, and it still works as expected.
