I've noticed this on my HTC Android mind you Google maps have been playing up for ages. When you try to zoom in its locks up and takes to long. Perhaps its got something to do with Google locking up there applications to stop other applications from using them. Have you seen the new Google lap top where everything is held in the clouds which means nothing is stored on a hard drive. Not impressed by this.....

Having extoled the virtues of my HTC Desire HD in previous threads, I've now gone and bought an Oregon 200 as the phone just cannot be trusted to deliver a GPS signal and draw maps when needed. This has become more obvious as my geocaching exploits have become more adventurous and I head off in the countryside for hours on end with little in the way of a mobile signal. You don't have to search far on the internet to read numerous posts about the stability of the GPS on Android phones either.

 

I have yet ro receive the Oregon but I'm expecting it to improve my rural geocaching considerably. When you're two hours walk from your car and you're in the middle of nowhere, you really do need to know where you are and in my experience, I can no longer rely on my Android phone to do so.
