I have android tablet and google maps was loaded on when I purchased it. It has been working fine but now it is not. I click on Maps and it just takes me back to the main screen. How do I get the link fixed?

I’m really not sure what’s wrong, but I would try uninstall and reinstall. Go into Settings Application manager to uninstall it, then reinstall it from the Play Store.

Thanks Chris. The tablet would not let me uninstall a program that was installed at the factory. But I was able to uninstall the updates. So I did that and got back to the original factory version. Then I reinstalled the updates. And it is working now. Thanks again for your suggestions.
