Many thanks!

I was able to install it on Nexus 5, but not able to log in into my profile to get "My Places" (which is the main thing I'm missing in Maps v7).
When I go to Settings > Sign in, a "Login failed" bubble appears, and in the notification tray "Sign-in Request" message, but when I click on it, nothing happens. I have two Google accounts on this phone, if this makes any difference.

You - almost - saved my day!

Many thanks!

Same here!
The app installed properly and I was already jubilating. But then Login failed as OldSavage explains. Login via settings leads to same result.
Any idea why or a workaround? By the way, I only have one Google account on the phone. That shoulnd't be the reason for the issue.
For me too, beeing able to access "My Places" is the main reason why GM7 is useless to me (strange enough, tha they dumped such a basic feature)

Cheers

Marc

yes i noticed that.
in Android 4.3, Old Maps is not able to log in!!! Tested on NOTE 3
if you found any old version that can log in please let me know (link or Up)

---------------
in google maps 7 you can see your stared places:
click on your search area and you will see View all, click that and y have all of your searches and stared places but yes it's hard to use compare with GM6


cheers

SORRY.... I feel this morning like a stupid noob

Of course is your version right. I installed after downloading my own old and wrong maps version

And... You all are right.
I installed the 6.5.0 few months ago and everything works fine. Login and my locations also work after confirm the things in the notification bar.

But I didn't see, that now the maps are not logged in. No my locations, and no search function.

Maybe the new firmware updates are the problem. Before I updated my note 3, it works perfectly.

finally worked

I was thinking to get rid of my i9500 due to sucking maps app after 4.3 update, but I installed this app. Intially it created trouble logging in. But I left it for a night. Then non navigation version logged in. Now working just like a dream. I'm again happy with s4!!!

Good Luck people...!!

I would just like to say thank you to the OP for posting this installation file. I hated Google Maps 7.0+ since it came out this past summer and immediately "downgraded" back to 6.0+ on my Galaxy S4 and ignored all Google Play updates for it. When I installed JellyBean 4.3, unfortunately it updated Maps to 7.0+ on its own. I used it for one day and was already at my wits end with it. Thanks again for this.

My only question regarding it is, is the map data static or will it update itself whenever Google updates map data? For example, if a street in my neighborhood suddenly gets changed from 2 way to one way and Google Maps is notified and updated, will your custom app know this as well?

The map data is in the cloud - it's not part of the app... so it will update.

A tip to avoid unnecessary power consumption.
The maps 6 version is also running at the same time with Maps 7.
I have a lot of background activities / wakelocks.
Probably location tagging or other stuff.
You can switch off the following options in Maps 6 without loosing the functions, because they are already activated in maps 7.
(Depending what you have activated)

Settings in GOOGLE- SETTINGS :

Now I have no Background activities from maps 6 anymore :)

Please please please can you show me a way to make apk installable for any android. I want to install my s2's apps on s4. I would be very very grateful to you sir if u please kindly tell me. My email is [email protected]

you can not simply make installable apks from s2 and install them on any android!
there are a lot of lib files and others that you need to port them!
Google it, maybe you found flash-able s2's TW and other things for any android
upload some apks that you want to convert, i want to test them

    That's bad :-\

    Be sure you downloaded the 6.14.4?
    Don't use the 6.14.1

    Try again with a Sim Card (maybe Google need it)???

    Just a try:

    Delete cache and data from booth maps.
    Delete maps 6.
    Delete updates maps 7 and deactivate it.
    Install maps 6.14.4.

    Try out maps 6 and wait for the notification in status bar. They are 3 different notifications! Confirm all with yes.

    Maybe reboot it, if the notification is not showing

    If it works, activate maps 7 and update it again.
