I received an UPDATE for Google MAPS on 8/16/12. Since the update, everytime I use the application, my phone power resets after about 30 seconds into it. ANNOYING so I just removed the most recent update. ANY fix on this problem?
go into settings--> apps---> maps and clear data/cache and then restart your phone. then try again if that fails try uninstalling the update in the same setting options shown above and reinstall it.
I think there may be a new update possibly. You are not the only one having problems with the update. My son phone it won't open and restarts his phone. That trick worked for him.
Sounds like you've done the best solution, something with the new Maps update may just not jive with your phone. I would also suggest emailing the dev (email address should be on their Play Store page) and let them know of the issue.
Yes not a bad idea...on the comments inside the Play Store page, there is TONS of people with this issue, I'm sure HTC and Google are probably aware of this by now. (Hoping that they actually read the comments posted) Either way I will send them my feedback.
