Samsung Captivate :: Google Maps Downloading

Sep 3, 2010

i took the captivate on the road and used it as navigation. it worked great for the first 3 hours of the trip, reception or not. i was amazed until i received a notice that my phone internal app memory is low and i need to uninstall my apps. theres no way my memory should be full because i've checked it every few days and i've had 1.6 gb free. all of a sudden i've got 126mb. i'm guessing that Google maps had downloaded the maps in advanced and had just filled up the internal memory. unfortunately i have no clue how to clear the maps. until i can figure this out i cant receive emails, or texts or any messages because the memory is full. does someone know how to clear the old maps from the navigation app? i'm on the road so i havent been able to look at it extensively. i will research it more when i get a chance and post anything i find.

Samsung Captivate : Google Maps 4.4.0 / Forced Close Bug

Aug 20, 2010

Google maps application is crashing constantly after the 4.4.0 update on my Captivate.At first, I thought it was the lag fix that caused corruption so I re-flashed the stock ROM and it still crashes.The only fix so far is to downgrade to 4.0.0.Is anyone else having similar problems?

Samsung Captivate :: GPS Using Wifi - Instant Lock Indoors - Google Maps

Jul 27, 2010

So before I start, let me say that I have tried this on my wife's Vibrant and my own captivate I get a lock immediately in google maps.

After seeing skyhook in the LbsTest settings I decided to look further into what skyhook is. I read the article below: Samsung to Put Skyhook on Mobile Devices - Midmarket from eWeek

So I thought hey... there are lots of wifi networks around where I live I wonder if it would help if I turn my wifi on.

I get an almost instant lock accurate to 50 meters (good enough for navigation). I have tried it over and over and when I turn off wifi, I get an accuracy of 1700 meters. Turn it back on and get accuracy to 50 meters.

It works indoors and out.

I just noticed that for this to work YOU MUST HAVE "USE WIRELESS NETWORKS" CHECKED under location and security then turn on Wifi (you don't have to connect to any networks). My guess is it narrows down your location based on Cell tower triangulation, then uses wifi to narrow it down.

Here is a blury, crapy, video I made of it:

Sprint HTC Hero :: New Google Maps Update

Dec 8, 2009

I noticed an update for Google Maps to 3.2.1. Being on the Hero, GM is pre-loaded and I don't know how to update it to the new version (since it's not listed in my Market downloaded, being that it was pre-loaded on the phone).Does it automatically do it, or do I have to uninstall and grab the new version from the Market? I went into the settings, but there was nothing there to check for updates, just 'Latitude' and the other standard options.

HTC Incredible :: Google Maps Update Unsuccessful

May 12, 2010

I received the alert to update Google Maps to 4.2, but everytime I try to install the update, I keep getting Update Unsuccessful (tried 5 times with resetting after each installation attempt). What could be the problem? Do I need to remove 4.1.1 first? I don't undertstand why I would as all other updates automatically replace the old/existing file. I emailed the developer, but no response has been received. Suggestions/fixes are welcome.And I'm still suffering from disappearing text conversations with stock messenging. I tried to download Handcent, and it wouldn't work. Oh well.

Android :: Important Warning About Google Maps Update

Nov 1, 2010

I think I've found quite a serious problem with the Google maps for Android update that just came out late last week.I have a Latitude account, but I havent signed it in on this phone as I don't want battery and data being wasted updating my location, plus most of the time the whole location tracker thing is a bit Big Brother for me anyway. But after the update, one of my friends warned me that i had appeared on Latitude, and it turns out that the update signed me in there and set itself to automatically update my location.If this is happening to others, this represents a serious lapse at Google - it should be up to me to switch on the service, it should not automatically sign in - let alone automatically update my location! This phone has never prompted me to switch it on, and that is not acceptable. My location is a private matter and my battery life and data are precious, goddamnit.

Android :: Google Maps GPS On Eris - No Auto Update

Apr 10, 2010

With GPS, location, etc. activated, the app doesn't update itself as I move around. My friend's iphone's GPS was able to detect him every time he turned onto an intersection. Mine stayed where it was when I first opened the app.

HTC Desire : Latest Google Maps/Navigation Update

Aug 5, 2010

Navigation will work fine initially, but the next time I go to use and I enter in a destination, it just stays on the "calculating route" (or whatever it says) screen. I have to go into Applications - Maps and clear the data there, then restart and it works fine then, but it's a bit of a ball ache because that clears the list of previous destinations. Anyone else having the same problem? It was fine before the update, but I don't know if it's a Froyo issue or an issue with the map update as I updated them both on the same day.

General :: How To Disable Google Maps Automatic Update

Jun 16, 2011

I have recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S, and Google Maps came installed on the phone. Now if I enter Android Market, then Google Maps is automatically updated, if there is an update. I have checked it under My apps, but there is no Automatic update checkbox as for other programs I downloaded from the market. Is there a way to disable this automatic update for Google Maps? I would be great, if I could choose when it should be updated, because its not funny, when my 3G limit is exceeded with Google Maps updates.

Android :: Google Maps Update Alert For Already Installed Version

Sep 28, 2009

Firmware 1.6
Mod Cyanogen 4.1.11.1
Build DRC 63
Last week I got and update alert for Google Maps. I tried to install it and got a "Install error" "Package file not signed correctly".

What's strange about it is, I already had the version it wanted me to install. Version 3.1.2. It also doesn't show up in aTrackdog but does show in apps drawer and works fine. The market shows that I don't have it installed. All other Google apps are working and show where they should. This started before the C&D order.

General :: Since Forced 4.3 Update Cannot Revert To Google Maps 4.0 No Blue Icon?

Oct 23, 2013

I am so upset because AT&T forced 4.3 update on my phone. For a month constantly ignored then yesterday message displayed could no longer be postponed.Now the blue Navigation icon is missing & even when I do uninstall google maps update doesn't revert to 6.0. Is that because 4.3 won't allow it to and if so is there a work around. My phone was already set up to allow manual updates only which is how I kept blue navigation for so long & never updated maps. but when 4.3 was forced it looks as it removed blue navigation app.

HTC Hero :: Google Maps Takes So Long To Update When Showing Directions / What's Wrong With It?

Aug 10, 2010

Since I installed (might just be a coincidence but I did update Maps via the market) 2.1, Google Maps takes so long to update when showing directions. For example I'll be in one street and have walked to another and it will still show me in the previous street after 30 seconds or so later. Also I noticed today when using it, that the arrow wouldn't move and just stays in one spot but the arrow does change direction though.

I could have sworn it wasn't like this before and I could just use it like a real gps unless I've overlooked something.

Also I get the "Current location temporarily unavailable" message all the time when searching my location unless I tick the Use Wireless Networks in the Location settings of the Hero. When I had 1.5, I didn't need to do this and just used GPS satellites.

What am I doing wrong here?
