Hi there, meagain2k,

Thanks for visiting the Apple Support Communities. From your post, I understand that you are having trouble using the maps in Find My Friends. I'm happy to help!

First, force close the Find My Friends app: How to force an app to close on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support . Then, restart your iPhone: Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support .

After your iPhone is back on, check to see if the Find My Friends app is working as expected. If not, try resetting your location services, as outlined below from About privacy and Location Services in iOS 8 and later - Apple Support :

Reset or disable Location Services

Location warnings are the requests that apps (such as Camera, Compass, and Maps as well as location-based third-party apps) make to use Location Services with those apps. An app will ask for permission the first time it needs to access Location Services data. Tapping Allow will give that app permission to use Location Services as needed. Tapping Don't Allow will prevent an app from accessing Location Services data. Apps won't use your location until they have asked for your permission and you grant permission.

If you would like to reset all of your location settings to the factory default, go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset Location & Privacy. When your location and privacy settings are reset, apps will stop using your location until you grant them permission.
