Ever since upgrading to Google Maps 5.1.0 on my Droid X, I have often had Google Maps bog down and freeze to the point of completely crashing the phone. Anyone else seeing this crash? Anyone find a solution?
Upgrade to Google Maps 5.2.1, released today.
You can usually uninstall updates from the app's page in the market. However, previous updates to Google Maps had similar problems for users that never turned their phones off. Try just restarting your phone.
Another option is to go to
Manage applications ->
All (tab at top) ->
Clear data and/or
If somehow something is corrupted in there, this will more-or-less reset things as if Google Maps was just installed but was never used.
