    It is not a good idea to put any kind of personal contact information in such a public forum.


    First, close the maps app. Double click the home button.  At the bottom, press and hold any app until a red circle appears on the top of each.  Tap the red circle on the Maps app.  Next, reset the phone:  press and hold the power and home buttons at the same time until the Apple logo appears.  Ignore the red slider if it appears.

    Have you tried opening the app by tapping an address in your contacts?  That may jog something back into place.

    Be sure to close the app first.


    You can't delete any of the native apps that come with the phone.  Other than taking it to an Apple store, the only thing I can suggest is that you install google maps, which is free.
