When getting directions to a new place on Google maps (using navigate) I get a black screen where the map tile should be.

Sometimes after a few seconds, Maps force closes and I have to type the place again.

It takes me about 4 or 5 attempts to get it working.

I have tried:

  • Uninstalling and reinstalling Google Maps
  • Clearing cache
  • Clearing data
  • Factory reset
  • Different ROM

Here are some screenshots of the issue:

  • Of course, I have been experiencing the same issue for a few versions though. – 1990clb Apr 11 '14 at 10:16
  • Screenshots would be welcome :-) – Naveen Apr 11 '14 at 11:15
  • I'll update as soon as I can get some :) – 1990clb Apr 11 '14 at 11:19
  • Does this issue happen only when navigating or also when generally using Maps? Does the problem change if viewing the map using satellite mode? – Mr. Buster Apr 11 '14 at 16:32
