I have a Google play edition of the S4. Lately, I keep getting the window telling me that unfortunately maps has stopped working. The problem is I'm not actively using the app, but it does run through Google Now. I cleared its cache, data and even forced stopped it to see if anything would change but nothing. Help?
Just go to Settings - Apps - Maps and uninstall updates. It may be that the new updates are the reason it crashes.
It would be good if you can switch off location setting in Google Now because every time you use Google now it starts locating via network or gps and starts up the map application in the background.
