    I updated to the latest version recently and it was working since the update. However, as of right now it continues to just sit in the 'Loading' phase. Is anyone else experiencing this right now? This occurs over WiFi as well.

    I'm in the Boston, MA area.

    Mine will load my location, but the search function stopped working.

    I also just discovered that it also won't load any maps outside my local grid.

    Google Maps is telling me of a network failure and then proceeds to use the GPS to identify my location. However, I cannot get the map to overlay and I cannot pull up directions. It just sits there saying 'Getting Driving Directions'.

    I'm going to guess this is a google issue and no my phone.

    Mine's not working since the update either. Hope they push out another update for Maps soon to fix whatever has happened.

    OK well I'm glad I'm not alone in this. I use it a lot and ran into this about an hour ago. The GPS still works but intermittent or no map data. I guess their map servers or network hardware are having issues.

    BTW I don't have the OTA update yet so I believe this a separate issue.

    Did you reboot after installing?

    Had the same types of problems with mine until I accidentally rebooted the Droid. Held my finger on the button to long to get it out of sleep and had to turn it off. When it restarted all was fine.

    This is not an update issue. The whole mobile maps system is down (or at least crippled). Mine was working fine yesterday after the update. Rebooting has no effect.

    i rebooted my phone the normal way with the update installed and it didnt work. then my phone hard powered off because my battery died (still update installed) once it turned on after plugging in the update works perfectly!!!! i can search and zoom and drag to different locations!! so aparently you need to hard power off the phone.. (easiest way is to take the battery out while its still on)

    Google Maps was working fine for me this morning. I noticed there was an update available, so I installed it, and then Maps stopped working. It kept giving a network error. I uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled, rebooted, etc. Nothing seemed to help.

    I called *611 and talked with various levels of tech-support for about an hour. Nothing helped. About 10 minutes after hanging up with tech-support, Google Maps was working fine again. Of course, I am back to the factory default version, and I don't know if it is safe to try the upgrade again. :unsure:

    So, this brings up an interesting question. Is there anyway to download google maps? At least the basic map (for GPS or whatever) in case the online maps go down or you are out of service range. I would feel a lot better if I knew my GPS would work regardless of cell coverage.

    Old thread, I know... but I just started experiencing this as well.

    As of a few days ago, built-in Navigation app fails with "Data connection reset" (or maybe "Data connection lost"). I have rebooted phone, tried to get directions at different times of day, to and from different locations.

    Steps to reproduce--

    Start Navigation app. Enter destination. It shows map and my current (correct) GPS location in dimmed out map, while a "connecting" message appears on top. After about 60 seconds, voice says that data connection has been lost, and the spinner continues to spin indefinitely.

    If I exit that screen and try again, I get same results. I use Navigation 2-3 times per day, and it has worked well for the past 2+ years. This problem is very new. I have killed app and restarted, and I have hard-reset device and tried as well. Same results each time. Phone has been rooted for 2+ years. I have not made any updates to the phone recently, and have not added any new apps. Based on the "data connection lost" message, it gives me the impression that the server side is hanging up on the request for directions. Or???
