    It just says on the searching for GPS screen, anyone else have this problem? I go to uninstall updates and it goes back to the Beta version and it works just fine

    No problems here. Sounds like it must be something on your end. I haven't seen anyone else mention this issue either.

    Uninstall maps by going to settings, applications, manage applications, hit menu, filter, choose all, then go down the list until you find google maps, select it, and hit uninstall. After that, go back to the market and download it again.

    But did you uninstall the update through the market or through your settings?

    I uninstalled all updates through the application settings on the phone, then when I ran google maps again it said it was in beta version. Ive tried a few times to reinstall the updates and it freezes again so I just deinstall the updates again and am now just running beta

    Are you running stock or are you rooted and using someone's ROM?

    I wish I could help but I am not sure what to do without root access other than doing a factory reset. Hopefully someone with more knowledge can come along and offer an easier suggestion.

    I ran the update and mine froze on me also. I rebooted my phone and tried again. It still stalled on the searching for GPS screen but eventually came out of it and started working fine. I'll keep and eye on it and if it happens again I'll drop back to an older version.

    I saw quite a few of Droid users posting this in the market reviews since the last update. I'm kinda leery of upgrading until it's figured out.

    I had noticed that maps was showing under Battery Left's usage log as sucking down 55% of the power, and that my phones been a little sluggish sometimes lately, i haven't had it totally freeze though. now I know what's been happening with my friends' phones (a g1 and a cliq)
