    I'm at the point where I'm ready to go back to Froyo with all of the bugs in CM7, but I would like to know if anyone can figure out a fix for the latest Google Maps with CM 7.0.3. I can consistently reproduce this problem regardless of kernel, V6 supercharged setting, or with/without compcache.

    If I open Google Maps and pan around to a few different places for a few minutes, after enough tiles have been cached the phone completely locks up to the point where I'll see the boot animation or I need to pull the battery. I like to use the traffic layer and I suspected that it may have been the culprit but I was able to reproduce this issue without it. No other changes to the settings from the defaults have been made.

    If I open Maps and "follow" my travel (as you would with a GPS device), Maps will also completely lock up the phone after a few minutes as above.

    I have tried clearing caches, running the permissions fix, reformatting the cache partition, wiping the dalvik cache, uninstalling/reinstalling Maps, reflashing GApps, applying different V6 supercharged settings, turning on/off compcache, and flashing different kernels (can reproduce this with stock too).

    Any ideas?

    Common issue. I reverted to a prior version of maps - works fine.

    I use 4.0.0 with no problems. Obviously you lose some of the newer functionality, but GPS getting you from point A to point B works.

    Using Zepplin's Aggressive 2 settings in his Supercharged script seems to be a temporary band-aid on the problem. Unfortunately, Maps will still lock up after a while but with less frequency.

    I will definitely move back to a prior version of Maps at least until a fix is committed. Thanks for your post.

    That was my "fix" for this problem. The latest Google Maps is definitely "broken" on CM7.0.3 on the OG Droid. Thank goodness for Titanium Backup!

    With the 3g speed boost settings in supercharger thread, Maps actually seems to run even better so maybe see if that helps

    where can i get an old version of Google Maps? Can someone post it?

    I think the problem is lack of memory and the GPS sensors get turned off. I use CoPilot too adn before a crash or lock up it tells me it lost GPS connection.

    Thanks to Link2SD, I have 191MB of available internal memory out of 262MB. I don't think it's a memory issue.

    different memory. the memory you are referrint to is storage (think hard drive) the memory that gingerbread is similar to RAM in your computer...completely different.

    Now, can someone post the .apk for GM4 if that works?

    Thanks,

    Thank you, but after thirty years in the computer field I think I know the difference between computer memory (RAM) and solid-state "hard drives." The 191MB of free memory is the Droid's memory. The SD Card has 7Gb of available storage. Capice?

    Um.... no not quite. The 191 free out of 262MB free is for 'internal storage' not RAM. Look under settings>storage and its listed their below the capacity of the sdcard. Having all of that 262MB free isn't going to stop the os and map app to fight over available RAM.

    Under "About Phone" CM7.0.3 lists:

    Mem info (avail/total)
    32 MB / 226 MB

    Is that what you're referring to?

    So Link2SD doesn't give you any more usable memory... it just lets you install more apps? Well THAT sucks...

    As I understand it yes. Link2sd just pushes applications over to the sd storage so more apps can be installed. There is virtual memory (compcache) in cm7 which I think uses a small portion of sdcard memory and uses it as if it was ram. I know compcache aims at increasing the effective usable amount of ram of the device but I am not entirely sure exactly how it does it
