Anyone else having problems with Gmaps? It will work for me on one route but on the next, it will try to start me from my last starting point or some random street 50 miles away. Rebooted and still had the same problem. Had to install Waze and that worked instantly so I'm guessing it's not the GPS hardware.

Has the same problem. Cleared the data, uninstalled the update then reinstalled from play store. All is working.

Google maps has been buggy lately, BUT on top of that ever since the 4.4 kikat update for my note 3, s4, and s5 my google maps/gps has been slightly off and acting funky...Delayed somehow..

I haven not noticed any issues with my gmaps so far though I don't use it often.

I would going to just suggest using waze, it uses more battery but I think it is worth it.

When maps goes bad it goes really bad. Even after clearing the cache and uninstall, I don't think I can trust it.
