Hi I have a samsung galaxy core lte and one of the reason I upgraded was to be able to use google maps for biking and when I open it and select biking it overlays properly but as soon as I ask for directions I get an error "maps has stopped working". If I open just a web browser and do the same it works as it is suppose to. I have also disable the cache and pull the battery out and no change.

Can anyone shed some light on this for me??

Open the play store and search for Google maps

Uninstall any updates

Restart your phone

Go back to google maps in the play store and update it

See if that helps

This a brand new phone so when I go into the play store and find google maps I can only update it, or so it seems??

Allow me, I've been studying this.

Here's a tip, be sure to clear apps running in the background as they may cause the phone to slow down and create error messages.
