Has anyone had issues with google maps lately? It will freeze and or close out on its own, both my girlfriend and I are having the same problem.

What firmware build are you on? And have you tried wiping Maps data and uninstalling updates, then reinstalling?

You could try factory resetting, but this will wipe all your apps and data, including your internal sd card. Not being rooted makes backing up anything other than the sd pretty much impossible though so you'd have to reinstall and setup everything from scratch.
Its possible it could be an issue with the app itself, but ive not heard anything else about it so I cant say how likely this is.

Only ither option I can think of is to make sure auto update apps is off in the play store, then uninstall the maps update and try running the older version.

So I rooted my phone and installed the SlimKat rom and still have the same problem, it seems after about 40 minutes of navigation Maps just closes out, no errors

It's an issue with Maps. It has been happening since 8.0 on my Nexus 5 and 7, wife's S3, buddy's Nexus 4 and 7, and his dad's HTC One (M8).
