I have an iphone 3gs, the same as my wife & grandson. We have all upgraded to IOS6. They both have maps but I only have blank pages. The iphone map pages are blank as are those of other Apps which used Google maps which includes Met Office, RAC, Plane Finder, Ship finder etc. Pinkfroot who have the Ship & Plane finder Apps can find no reason for this other than there being no maps on my iphone.I have heard that there are problems with Apple Maps but having none at all is less than satisfactory. Any help as to how I overcome this would be greatly appreciated.

iPhone 3GS, iOS 6.0.1

    Standard troubleshooting...


    Try a reset by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.


    Shut down the app...

    - From any Home Screen, double tap the home button to bring up the Recents List

    - Tap and hold any icon until they wiggle

    - Press the red to delete the offending app from this list.

    - Press the home button twice when done.

    - Restart the app



    If still a problem restore with your backup.


    If still a problem restore as new, i.e. without your backup. See how it runs with nothing synced to it.


    If still a problem, it's likely a hardware issue.
