Google Navigation Locking Up

I am running Legendary Rom RC2 and Samurai kernel.

The problem i am having is with google maps/navigation. It has been randomly locking up lately. Seems to do it randomly. Sometimes it will navigate fine for 20 or 30 minutes and then i look at it and its locked up (screen still shows map but none of the buttons works- i have to pull battery to restart). Sometimes it does this a minute or two into navigation.

I've waited to post this hoping i could figure out what was happening. I've tred waiting to see if its just a temporary lockup but its not. I am also running juicedefender so i turned that off but it still locks up. I have uninstalled and reinstalled maps and it still happens. I havent been able to notice a pattern of it occurring when there is a signal loss or certain areas or anything like that.

Anyone else having a similar issue or have any suggestions of things to try to fix it? Thanks!

Right behind you!
What version of Samurai? There were issues with 2.08. Try uninstalling Maps and redownload from the Market.

Still no luck getting this to work. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling multiple times. Also tried a new kernel (Nubernal now instead of Samurai). Any other suggestions?

You can always ODIN back to stock if all else fails. I hate google navigation. Google has been sucking it up lately with their new maps release. I get lag GALORE, and have also had some FC's with navigation.

I agree. That is why I use Telenav 7.1. Clear voice and hasn't locked up at all on EI22.

I've noticed this same thing now and again, and I'm chalking it up to the Google Maps updates. I don't think it's anything to do with GB or any of the ROMs, because I'm pretty sure it didn't happen before Google Maps updated their version with the inside maps, which I think was 6.0, but I might be off on the version.

I have a hard time going with TeleNav becaues Google has so many nice features like sharing via email/text the exact location, but I seem to be having a harder time with it locking up (like the OP said, maps still shows) and missing a turn!

How can I get the latest version of TeleNav?

Google just needs to re-release their first version of MAPS. I have virtually zero lag when I first bought my phone, the maps that came installed worked perfect. now its barely useable.

I have tried using Telenav but its just not my thing. I never use GPS navigation anyways. I only use google places. Maybe two times out of the year I will actually use GPS nav.

In the Market, scroll down to Sprint Apps and it is in those. I was shocked today and Telenav actually changed routes due to traffic...first time ever!

I found it in the market (for some reason, I thought if I went that way I would have to pay for it) which was redirected from the telenav website. For what it's worth, I did end up with 7.1.0.7101357 according to titanium backup.

so its not a problem with google maps/navigation, at least in my case. telenav does the exact same thing. i tried it out a few times today and it was also very laggy and then eventually it completely locked up. i used gps status to reset the gps but that didnt help. any other suggestions?

Have you flashed the GPS fix or a ROM with it included so you start out with like 8 out of 9 satellites?
