Hi Everyone!

Re: E72, Maps, white screen problem

You may have download the map data for the country you are currently in. However, when you start Maps for the first time, until it actually gets a fix of your location it may be defaulting to a different location in a different which you don't happen to ahve the map data downloaded for, hence blank screen. Example, you downloaded map data for the UK but Maps is defaulting to Helsinki, Finland.

 

What you should do is to search for a location within the area which you have downloaded the map data for and ask it to show on map. Alternatively, just wait for the phone to get a location fix.
