Google Maps Won't Turn Off

Google Maps starts and runs OK, but I can't turn it off.  The Menu button brings up a pop-up menu with Cancel, Switch Application, and Show Keyboard choices, but no Close or Exit.

 

Any suggestions?  It is Version 4.5.3 running on the BlackBerry Torch 9850 with OS7.

 

Thanks.

I can definitely understand how odd that could be to not be able to quit an application. I have Google Maps on my Torch and this is the way I close the app. In the app I go to>menu>exit. It’s pretty simple. If you are not getting the exit option I would uninstall the app and reinstall it.  The step for that process is as follows: Go to Options>Device>Application Management and delete it. I hope this helps. Thanks.

SammuelP,

Thanks for your note. 

When I pressed the Menu button, I only got Cancel, Show Keyboard, and Switch Applications as choices.  Removing and reinstalling didn't make a difference.

It was suggested to me to download Google Maps directly from Google to avoid any filtering or corruption.

I uninstalled it, and will decide how to reinstall it if I find that I actually need it.  BlackBerry Maps, so far, has fit my needs. 

I suspect that, like other apps I have researched, they have not yet updated Google Maps to work on the Torch 9850 with only virtual keyboards and OS7.  If it works on yours, count yourself lucky.

Thanks again.
