    I just noticed that Google maps is really really slow today on my new iPhone 4. Is anyone else experiencing this? I'm on a speedy wifi network. I noticed after installing a new app called "Where am I" or something like that. I deleted the app and rebooted but it is still super slow. I'm hoping I didn't jack up my phone.

    Always something isn't it?

    Guess I'll have to use the Bing app if this keeps up.

    Yesterday both my GF and I noticed the slow down in google maps too.
    However she was on her 3GS while I was on my 4.

    Might just be an issue with google maps if more people noticed it on their 3GS or older iPhones too.


    And yes, I registered just for this thread. :p

    Solution

    My problem: Typing on the Google Maps app was very slow, independent of network connection.

    My solution: Apparently there are issues with the GPS multitasking. I went to Settings > General > Location Services. Notice you can toggle the GPS for each app. Apps using the GPS have a purple arrow next to the ON/OFF switch. I turned location services off for every other app with the purple arrow. I went back to the Google Maps application and everything worked well.

    This might not work for everyone but it worked for me.
