    Hello there
    I've experienced a problem with Google maps. My application start Google Maps via indent but it seems after a while the starting position is not coming from GPS-chip-location but from some kind of history.
    This is very frustrating when I try to navigate from where I am but Google maps will start from another address (far away). It seems like this wrong address is "stuck" and Google maps will allways try to start from there. If I uninstall Google maps and Reinstall it it will work for a while, but then we are back on the same old track again (starting from wrong address).

    I've tested to clear Google maps datacache but it seems not to be enough, only in some cases.
    (We are supporting 50 mobile units with this system).

    Did you guys came across something like this and perhaps have some kind of workaround.
    e.g. "deeper programmatically clearing of cache" or something like that?

    Why don't you use an internal Google map? You will have more control.

    Maybe I expressed myself a bit bad?
    I am using the Internal Google maps.

    I am starting as a MapIntent with

    Selection = "google.navigation:q=a+" & Temp.Trim & ",,,+" & Temp2.Trim
    MapIntent.Initialize(MapIntent.ACTION_VIEW, Selection)
