I installed the brandnew Maps application version 3.04 on my Nokia E72, but when I start the application, the phone reboots. I installed the update through the built-in Software Updates feature.
Anybody has the same problem ?
Can I start "from scratch" ? I can't remove the Maps application altogether, it seems...
I'm using the last E72 firmware...
same problem here, installed the new version through software update on my n97 mini with sw 10.0.020.227.02
when i start the application the first icon-screen appears looking normal, but shortly after that the screen 'fades' and the phone seems to do a soft reset displaying the start-screen with logo for quite a while before the main-screen appears. sometimes the phone 'locks' on the logo-screen and i'll have to remove the battery to get it to start correctly.
any ideas anybody?
I'm also facing the same problem on my E72 v031.023. I tried installing by the following ways:
In all the above cases the phone restarts every time I start new Maps v3.04.
Minsartp: For reverting to the previous version go to App. Manager > Installed Apps. Uninstall everything related to Maps e.g. Nokia Maps, Ovi Maps etc. That way it will revert to the original version of Maps that was installed as part of the firmware. That way its working on my phone now.
If anyone has any idea what the problem might be, please do let us know.
I have the same problem with the new Maps 3.04 on my N97 (firmware v20.0.019) I downloaded the Maps update using the Software Update application. As per the other posts, the application just about launches but as soon as Maps finishes loading, the phone crashes and usually reboots itself. Once, the phone crashed and powered off.
I've uninstalled 3.04 so my phone has gone back to its default v3.01. How can I get the stable v3.03 back?
I have the same problem on my Nokia E72, but if I disable the Wifi/location in GPS options the problem just gone.
PS: Sorry for my english
Kudos yuserneim. After I disabled Wi-Fi/Network in GPS > Positioning settings > Positioning methods, starting Maps v3.04 no longer restarts the phone and is now working fine on my E72.
the same happened to me. I deleted cities, all the ovi maps stuff; reinstalled etc etc etc.
Indeed the temp fix is to disable WiFi/Network based position methods.
Maybe if you just delete the added ovi maps file: Ovi Maps WiFi/network positioning (3.02(6)) it also 'fixes' this problem.
Something to try next here..
disabling the wifi/network positioning setting on my n97 mini made everything start working again!
I have the same problem with my N97 (v 21.0.045) and latest Nokia Maps 3.04. Disabling WLAN/Network seems to help but I would like to have a fix for the software.
For those who don't know how to disable that, just go to settings, phone, application settings, navigation, navigation methods and uncheck the Wi-Fi/Network from there.
One step ahead ... but we're not there yet .
I tried the suggestions so far: after disabling Wifi/Network as a GPS Positioning method, MAPS just closes after a few seconds. However, it doesn't reboot my phone anymore.
@roelandjanssen: where did you find the ovi maps file: Ovi Maps Wifi/network positioning (3.02(6)) ? Was it installed with Maps version 3.04 ? I did see that 3.03 doesn't include a Wifi/Network positioning method. Apparently, it was introduced in 3.04.
After you have installed Maps 3.04, which applications in your list of "installed applications" (Ctrl. Panel / App. mgr. / Installed Applications) look like Maps-related applications ?
Some problem here with a N97 mini (FW: 10.0.020). Tried to delete map data and reinstalled did not solve the issue.
Disabling the "Wi-Fi/Network" positioning methode fixed the restarting problem.

Trying to reproduce that problem, without success so far
@OliverLa and Minsartp: Could you please help and answer few questions:
- from which Maps version did you upgrade to Maps 3.04?
- what other applications/widgets you have installed on device - please list all
- what are the positioning settings: Location/Positioning/Positioning server - what is defined?

Can all those who are affected by this issue send me a Private Message with the following information:
With this information I can start investigations with R&D.
Thanks for your help and apologies for the problems this has caused.
@cbidlake: I am having the same issues on the N97, and I just sent you a private message with all the information you requested.
I have the same problem with my Nokia N97 mini. The problems started when I installed a WLAN-hotspot-software (JoikuSpot Premium Edition 2.40)). Could this software be the reason to the problem?
