Google Maps Update

Google Maps just got itself a little update in ye olde Android Market. And as you can see above, the changes are as follows: You can filter your search results by what's currently open, but neighborhood or by related searches. Also, you can browse the updated reviews section of Place Pages to read others' reviews.

OK, so not the sexiest of updates, but a fairly major one nonetheless. Have at it! [Google]

Pausing and not downloading

piddonkadonk says:

phew, thought it was just me! I'm getting the download unsuccessful thing as well

gmonkey88 says:

I think we're all having the same problem. Downloading paused?
I guess I'll just try again later.

jimbobalu says:

Same here, download paused then download unsuccessful. Maybe servers are overloaded?

Chadney says:

How do I update applications? Just got an EVO. Any help would be appreciated.

Android Market > Menu > Downloads > Update

MowDownJoe says:

That's true 99% of the time. The 1% of the time when it's an app that's baked into Android, the first time you update it you have to find it on the market and install the updated version. After that, it's updated like any other app.

the market really is terrible. i waited hours today to update opera mini...
.androidsecure deleted...
i am really beginning to dislike android, too many variables

ziaodix says:

Then I suppose you could return?/go to Apple. They're quite simplistic and for the less intuitive. ;-P

tailsthecat3 says:

wow. nice.

Davest says:

My thoughts exactly. For people who prefer to have choices made for them, and avoid "variables", iPhone really is the better choice.

Chadney says:

Thank you guys!

Chadney says:

F Apple - I switched from my Pre.

ziaodix says:

Just as bad in my opinion, though now they have a better financial back bone, perhaps they can actually do something worth while.

randomDood says:

I am also getting the same issues as some previous posters. Download will pause and eventually fail, regardless of what app I try to download. Must be something going on with the Market.

• 75% of the android phones on 2.2
• with automatic update enabled for google maps
• which is a 5 meg download
• overloading the server and reattempting repeatedly

Google DDOS’d themselves

Yep download unsuccessful. Haven't tried anything besides Google Maps update, so I'm going to wait until later and try again. If we keep trying and trying I'm sure it will bog down servers.

what's going on with the market? it's horrendously slow

to the guy sayin hes startin to dislike android.... FYF... every OS has their problems and this isnt even a problem, overloading shouldnt get you frustrated, everybody uses the google maps. why you in a rush?

Phil crashed Google!

MrRedJoker93 says:

I also can't download it. Starts and then pauses or just kinda freezes. Probably need to give it a few hours for the servers to cool down.

markyflies says:

No download here. Message "Unable to download"

what the heck.

Sprint HTC Hero 2.1 non rooted.

its not just Google Maps. I tried to download some other apps as well. no go. something is wrong with the market.

Yep Market down all around. also this update adds real time tracking supposedly:

Chewieez says:

yea thanks for the tease but I can't download it ... it just hangs.

I guess I'll try again later.

shawngc says:

I tried this and it didn't work but if someone else gets it to work then more power to you. It has a manual download link

Back up and running for me. Just got the update but I can't find that Real Time option TechCrunch mentioned

epifano83 says:

Just finshed downloading Google maps and installed with no prob.

psinno says:

The market being down isn't exactly a new thing. I have been having intermittent problems downloading apps for months. Still it is nice to see it mentioned here.

kinster02 says:

Downloaded and installed worked for me.

KGP says:

So another update and you still can not erase your Directions/Layers History in the Layers section !!! Nice going.
