    Auto reboot?

    Are there any apps that will automatically reboot the phone, say, every morning? I have found that Maps requires a reboot occasionally, and it would be convenient to automate that process on a daily basis.

    I'm running stock 2.1.

    Thanks in advance.

    No. This is a Droid, not a Blackberry and while an occasional reboot is helpful there is absolutely no reason for a daily reboot. Matter of fact I think you are the first person to request this. At least first I've seen and if you look at my post count you might get the idea that I hang out here a lot.

    Instead of rebooting your phone why not just go into your applications and shut down Maps?

    Wow, Hook, don't you ever take a break?

    I've found that when the phone is on for a couple of days straight, Maps has trouble locking on to GPS. I tried the Force Stop, but it didn't help. After a reboot, though, it pick it right up.

    Hence my question!

    I'm on a break all the time....lol...I love this place.

    I haven't experienced that myself. But back to your original question I don't believe there is a battery pull or auto reset for the Droid.

    But hey, I could be very wrong there are thousands of apps I know aboslutely nothing about.

    Also RFRSH Refresh for Android (schedule you auto reboot --- date and time--- has ability to launch apps you want on restart of your device) or get the Basic version without the apps launcher. See the Android Market or Refresh for Android | Morpheus Tech Apps

    Interesting post, one I've thought about but not gotten around to asking. I have a need for rebooting periodically (fortunately not every day) because my Droid loses the ability to play my AAC music and video files. A simple reboot fixes the problem. 2.1 never did this, so something changed in 2.2.

    You don't need to reboot. The problem isn't Maps. It's the GPS receiver (not the same thing, despite what many seem to think). Get GPS Status and use its GPS reset feature.

    For some, there are compelling reasons to perform a daily boot. In the Cyanogen Wiki, it states that compcache performance is strongest after boot but degrades over time. I've experienced this myself. Swap and Compcache - CyanogenMod Wiki
    Thanks for the tip, gthomaspt, I'll have to check this app out.
