Installation for root:

1. In Titanium Backup, select Maps and make a backup.
2. Select Maps and wipe data, then uninstall.
3. Select Street View and wipe data, then uninstall.
4. Make a reboot (recommended).
5. Rename the file u downloaded to Maps.apk
6. Copy Maps.apk to system/app and fix permissions rw-r--r--
7. Reboot & Enjoy =D

Signed version can be installed like a normal app, unsigned can't. It'll give an installation error. Unsigned version has to be moved to /system/app via adb or Root Explorer and set permissions to rw-r-r. That's the only difference , THANKS TO sashank :)

it works fine with me on cm music edition v4 no force closes !

Anyone wants Maps 6.11.1 Ownhere version running perfect on gingerbread, ICS and JB roms (not sure about donut :fingers-crossed:)

Well, here you go, signed and unsigned versions. Signed can be installed on almost any rom, unsinged has to be used on Samsung roms and maybe others. I don't have the instructions for it but following first post instructions should do the work :)

Regards :D


PS: By the way, I've already tested them :) and they are working really good :)

PS2: I've tried to attach the apps, but couldn't do it due to the size but don't worry, use my links instead :)

Great!

Works like a charm! Although I had to install the signed one, for some reason the unsigned one didn't want to install.

thanks for comment guys :)
and i really don't know what's the difference between both versions :D

thanks bro can you give me egypt map becuse i want use it offline ?

hmm! i don't know if this possible but i think you can't download the hole map of egypt :/ any location on the map will be downloaded when you use it for the first time ,then you can use it offline by using ur GPS to get your location but you can't get directions while you're offline =/

Hello!
Thank you for this but I`m stucked on `Searching for GPS..` . I`m getting a GPS fix right away in Sygic , Waze...but not in Google Navigation .I`ve already cleared APGS data , did a couple of fresh reinstall but no luck .
Is there any solution to fix that ?

PS :HTC One X , ICS 4.03 , custom ROM (Charmeleon 5.0 ) , custom kernel ( Franco`s r9 )

Thank you in advance!
