Android app crashing on Google Maps link

Post by daway8 »

Anyone else using the Android app finding it crashing everytime you click on the "Getting There" link that normally brings up Google Maps with directions to the trailhead?

I've tried it for a dozen or so peaks across all ranges and they all crash the app. Already tried rebooting the phone...

Yes! Hoping to add a data point. I had this exact thing happen to me on Friday driving down to hike Kit and Challenger. Also tried restarting the app and phone at the time with no luck. Also, the app is wonderful and thank you for all the hard work that goes into it. Am I blind or is there no longer a cheers emoji? :Beer:

I’ll take a look later this week when I get home. Can’t do much about it right now. Sounds like the TH pages with directions still work, just not the GMaps link.

UPDATE:

And just to make sure, are you using the latest version, v3.0.14? It was released recently. Version can be checked in Settings.

The Getting There page problem may have been fixed in that update.

Yessir. So when I update a TH on the site, the mobile apps pick up the changes the next time you open. So, I just need to update all of the THs in the next couple of days and you’ll get the elevations when the app opens. Im hiking right now but will be back home in a couple of days to update the THs. :)
