Ovi Maps 3.04 crashes my n97

Ovi Maps 3.04 crashes my n97

I've tried installing the updated Ovi Maps 3.04 several times now and each time I launch the app it will cause the screen to fade, then I get red, blue and green lines, then the phone reboots. I initially did the upgrade from 3.03, that version worked great, and as soon as it finished and I launched the app is crashed the phone. Rebooted a few times and same thing, did a soft reset and same thing. Then I completely wiped the phone, formatted the storage, hard reset, installed my must have apps like MFE, Joikuspot Premium, Opera Mobile, Nimbuzz, Facebook and Youtube, then installed OVI Maps............same thing. So now I'm going to do it all over again and install the Maps first, then start installing apps one by one. I'm sure it's an incompatibility between Ovi Maps 3.04 and one of my apps. I'm not sure why though because 3.03 worked just fine with even more apps installed, and it's not like any of the apps I installed were betas or anything.

 

Well after some additional testing I've narrowed the problem down to an incompatibility between Ovi Maps 3.04 and the current version of Joikuspot Premium downloaded from their website. I wiped the phone, installed the new version of Ovi Maps, and the app functioned as expected. I then downloaded and installed the current version of Joikuspot Premium directly from their website, registered it, launched it, then shut it down. Then I tried launching Ovi Maps again. The application came up but after 5 to 10 seconds I got color streaks across the screen then the phone rebooted. I continued to do this each time I tried to launch the app. Then I uninstalled Joikuspot, rebooted, and launched Ovi Maps and it worked just fine. I then tried installing some of my other apps I use like Opera Mobile, MFE, Nimbuzz.......all those functioned just fine and Ovi Maps continued to work. I then reinstalled Joikuspot, rebooted, registered, etc.... and Ovi Maps started crashing again. Then again I uninstalled Joikuspot, rebooted, and Ovi Maps started working again.

 

So does anyone have any suggestions? I use Joikuspot quite often, as well as Ovi Maps, so I hope to get some sort of solution to this.

I was having same problem with my N97 Mini, turning wifi GPS positioning helped. Problem is corrected in new Joikuspot Premium 3.0: http://www.joikuspot.com/mobile/

Chris announced the other day that there was a bug in Joikuspot that was making Maps crash when wifi positioning was turned on. Joikuspot has pushed out an update with a fix in it.

 

So, update to the latest Joikuspot and then your Ovi Maps and your wifi positioning will both work.
