    I find it hard to believe that I'm the only one with a Google maps problem. If anyone is using Google maps without a problem, please let me know. Thanks.

    It won't load. I get a network error both with WiFi and network data. All other apps work fine. It worked several hours ago. If anyone can try their application to see if your's work. I've never had a problem with Google maps for the 2 years I've used it. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks for your help. I have the same version and tried both of your suggestions. Neither worked. I'm very frustrated. Any other ideas.?

    Have you updated the Maps app or OS since this issue? Uninstalling updates and reverting the app back to its factory version may fix it.

    I had faced this issue once. The only thing that worked for me was going to my list of applications->Maps->Clear Data->Uninstall updates.

    After this I went to the store and updated the maps app. It worked after that.

    Tried it and it doesn't work. Nothing I've tried works. I'm at my wits end. Here is the screenshot.

    Have you tried completely uninstalling the app and redownloading it from the Play Store?

    The problem with that is you cannot Uninstall Maps completely, only updates. I'm looking for a way to completely Uninstall Maps. That way I would be installing Maps from scratch. Thanks for your suggestion.

    In your position IMANUT46, I would seriously consider doing a Full Wipe+Factory Data Reset and download and flash the latest stock Verizon firmware and re-setup your phone. This allows the phone to be cleared and cleaned completely and a fresh firmware with new settings installed and no detritus from previous firmwares and updates.

    On a slightly related topic, when I use Navigation via Google Maps, it tediously forces me to go through 2 screens before I get the history of places I visit and the keyboard option, and then when I am using the navigation, if I change route, it says 'Rerouting' but never reroutes! Is there something I might have done in the Settings or disabling other apps that might be affecting the app?

    That would have been next if the problem didn't clear by itself. I dreaded a factory reset. It would have been many hours for me to restore the system . But thanks anyway.
