    Hi

    I am having some problem after update to Amber. May be it is not the problem with the Amber update. Actually after Amber update when I started the HERE Maps application, I also accidentally pressed the back button so HERE Maps closed in the middle of its splash screen display.

    After that, whenever I start HERE Maps it just displays the splash screen and goes back to start screen and nothing else. May be just because of that no other maps application is working i.e. HERE Drive, Google Maps (this one starts but doesn't display any map at all).

    One more noticeable thing is that HERE Maps or HERE Drive are not displaying in the store if I have the region set to Pakistan where I live. But after settings it to other regions, I can see the apps. Can anyone please help me as I am very used to the Maps feature before this update and I really want to have it back.

    Regards,

    Mujtaba Ali Panjwani

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling Here maps and see if that fixes it.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Sorry, forgot to mention that I tried to reinstall the Amber update using "Nokia Software Update", tried resetting the phone, tried reinstalling HERE Maps/Drive several times but to no avail. Problem still the same without any change.

    Have you restarted your phone. I had a problem with Xbox music not starting and thought I'd have to reset. Every time I restarted the phone it would crash, but right before I was about to hard reset I found that if I restarted, waited without opening the all then restarted again it worked.

    Hi

    I have restarted it several times while Here Maps or Here Drive were installed and kept for days. Several restarts (not specifically for Maps) but nothing worked. Even uninstalled the app then several days later tried to install again and opening it but still no luck.

    I have Nokia Lumia 620 that is why I submitted on this forum :)

    Hi guys. That is how I solved this problem: I have deleted all the maps I have saved, and after just downloaded them again.
    Setting> Applications >Maps >Download maps.
    After scanning, you may see what maps you have in a storage, mark them and delete. After just download again, Hope, you'll be lucky as I am)))

    Well, the problem is that we are not able to start HERE Maps at all so actually in my case I have no maps downloaded at all.

    Also in my region Pakistan, HERE Maps is not available. I had to install it after changing the region to US etc. Does this mean that Pakistani Windows Phones won't be able to start Maps?

    The makers of here maps are not working on Pakistan maps cause here few people gave them a response and they don't have a clear mapping for Pakistan... We believe that they might fix it in the black update

    I'm facing the same issue... The difference is "Here maps " was working fine in "Amber Update" but it's stopped working after GDR3 (aka Lumia Black)
    ...and "Here maps" isn't the only map app that's not working, WP8's native "Bing maps" has also stopped working and alternative apps like "Gmaps" etc won't work. Even "Foursquare" isn't working properly....

    I have the same problem with my Nokia 820. After Lumia Black all map apps stopped working. Maybe related to a problem with native maps control? There have been a number of threads about this but no solution from Nokia. I have also tried to resolve with online Nokia chat but did not help. It looks like first option for a solution (lesser options do not work) is to use Nokia software recovery tool to reinstall Lumia Black. Anyone know an easier solution?

    Bad news boy!!
    Nokia's S/W Recovery Tool probably won't work either.... It didn't work for me :(
    I went to the Nokia Care store yesterday and HERE maps and other apps weren't working on the Employee's L820!!
    The Employee at the Nokia Care said "It's a regional issue" ( I hate it when they say that... Sounds as if they're trying to say, "you should live somewhere Else!!" :P )

    Most of all... One of them said, "Maps?? What maps? Nokia Lumia has no Maps, see HERE maps isn't working on my phone too"

    in short Nokia has no answer to this ( btw they do have pretty excuses though!! But non of them justifies THE FACT THAT MAPS WERE WORKING BEFORE!!!!) and the only way to fix your maps is to Flash it.... But your phone will loose it's warranty that way... So it's not really a solution
