So I have a Sprint Note 3, Stock, Latest OTA, Non Rooted. Problem is, maps will force close continuously while in navigation mode. GPS seems to work fine on locating me on the maps side and in other apps that use gps in some form or another. Ive also cleared cache, un installed, reboot and re installed the updates and that makes no change.

Any help would be amazing.

How did u uninstall the app if you're not rooted? . This is a system app that can not be removed. Not sure why you are having g force closing issues as mine works just fine. . Have you tried clearing data instead of just cache?

Try that and see if it works. Not sure what else u can do besides root and remove the app and reinstall fresh.

I dont wanna hafta root that phone as the user that has it might end up breaking something.

I thought about a hard reset.

This did not correct the problem. Nor did the hard reset. Could it be a problem with the actual phone?
