Default Help me please. I need to revert back to maps 6.14.4 on the galaxy note 3.

I just bought the phone and the first thing I did was to download the Google Maps 6.14.4 apk from the Internet. But when I try to install it. I get the message cannot install. I tried unintelligible updates but there is no option as there is in my Nexus 7 2012. I'm guessing that it's because Android 4.3 being a fresh install on the galaxy note 3 as well as Maps version 7. I drive for living and am completely dependent on the maps app. I tried version 7 but it doesn't allow me to use alternative routes in the middle of the journey. There must a way of installing the old version. I don't mind rooting my brand new phone. But I must get the old version installed. Kindly reply with some suggestions.

If you drive for a living, I'd think you'd use something other than Maps for it. Sure, Google Navigator is okay in most respects but there are certainly better alternatives out there. Waze, CoPilot, TomTom, etc.
AT&T LG G2 - 4.4.4, AOKP
Nexus 7 Wifi 2012 - 4.4.4, AOKP (m-kernel)

Default If I drive for living surely I would have tried them all.

None of those even compare to Google maps.

I don't have a Note 3, so not sure what exactly is the problem you facing installing Maps 6.14.4. I uninstalled the new Maps 7 from my 4.3 Note 2 and was able to install 6.14.4 fine? Were you able to uninstall Maps 7 first from your Note 3?

Maps is a "system" app so you'll need root to do anything about it.

I manage to uninstalling it on my Nexus 7 running Android 4.3. But Note 3 does not give me the option to do it. It's because it's a fresh install of 4.3 and Maps 7.2. You can only only uninstalling if you had a previous version installed. The only options I get are force stop and disable. I tried installing the older apk over the new one but it won't allow it. Thanks for the reply.

I just realized that note 3 has this problem, even for non stock app, I have to uninstall the current one first then I can install the older version app
