I've always had problems with the current versions of Maps. Too intensive resource for my different devices. I found a previous version that works very well and even has the old "Labs" cache areas that do NOT expire, unlike the current versions. PlayStore knows that I have Maps installed and would update it if I allow it. I do not.
The problem is with the map inserts that appear in the browser pages. If I click on one, they take me to PlayStore and ask me to update Maps. No no no!
Is there a solution for this problem?
