    I've had my Droid Eris for about a month now, and the google maps app somehow uninstalled itself. I searched for it in the market, and I can't find it anywhere. I use this app all the time, and I'd really like to get it back. It's nowhere to be found in my apps or anything. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me figure this out. I feel like I've searched everywhere on forums, but nothing has come up to help me find it.

    What are you typing in the market when you search for it? The proper title is Google Maps. I'll post a QR Code in a sec, maybe it will let you get to it from there.

    How does an app uninstall itself?

    Use Barcode Scanner on this and see if it will take you to it.

    I've typed that in... And I don't know how it uninstalled itself. But, the app said it was no longer installed when I tried to open it. I turned off my phone, and when I turned it back on, it was completely missing. My sister has the same phone and her app is just fine, yet she doesn't ever use it, ironically.

    I tried that and it says "There are no matches in Adroid Market for the search: pname:com.google.android.apps.maps"

    Are you running a ROM?

    No need to feel dumb, we all have to start somewhere. Well, if you don't know what a ROM is then you more than likely don't have one, but for informational purposes, here is a link to the ROMS section: Android Roms - Droid Forum - Verizon Droid & the Motorola Droid Forum

    Will it let you pull up other apps in the Market?

    Are you using Wifi or Bluetooth?

    Yes, I've been able to pull up and download other apps, but this one is just wiped out from memory. I use wifi sometimes, but not bluetooth.

    I went to the link, and then tried to go on m.google.com/maps.... The site says that my phone already has it, so I pressed "Launch it now" but it just gives me a webpage not available screen...

    The link was more just for informational purposes. I haven't been able to find anything with a solution. I'm sure someone else in the forums may know the answer, hopefully someone will trickle in and give you that.
