    Remove Google Maps

    Just to explain why I want it removed... I can't use it. When I opened it I would not accept the terms and conditions. Today I accepted thinking I would find a setting to stop it from preloading. But all I get is "waiting for location" and it closes

    And yet it still preloads. If I uninstall it it bugs me for an update.

    Just to be clear I am using an Android running a rooted 4.0.1 that I paid about 65 USD not a power house. Heck the clock loses 200 seconds a day. LOL

    I don't know that you actually CAN remove Google Maps because it might be tied in with System Software. In any event, I'm not a technician so wait and see what other (and more knowledgeable) people have to say on the subject.

    Re: Remove Google Maps

    Ultra is correct. You can't delete Google Maps, because it's tied into your operating system. I wouldn't worry about it using your system resources though as it simple sits in your cache ready to be used, but isn't actually running. Is there a reason you didn't want to accept the terms and conditions? If you're using a Google based phone and Gmail, they already have your personal information, so you wouldn't be giving them access to anything , or any information, they don't already have.

    Re: Remove Google Maps

    The only reason was I can't use it. No GPS no location services. Very under powered tablet. In fact I can't even access preferences. Since Google maps force closes when finding location fails.

    Re: Remove Google Maps

    Well that certainly makes sense. The only workaround here would be to root your device then you'd be able to either delete the app, or at least freeze it so it wouldn't show up or even appear on your device.

    Google Map is useful for our trip, I think you had better keep it.
