    i have a motorola droid, about every 30 minutes or so when i unlock it an error comes up saying google maps has malfuntioned and has to force close. So i uninstalled it, but the error keeps coming up?

    any suggestions?

    you can't uninstall it. it's an app that comes with the phone. if you installed it from the marketplace, you've performed an update to your app (which was smart). chances are there's something on the SD card the app doesn't like. try this:

    home - menu - settings - applications - manage applications - menu - filter - all

    then find google maps and hit clear cache/data (whatever button(s) enabled)

    also, have you tried rebooting?
