700wx and Google Maps

I recently installed Google Maps via Google's website. I was sure to install the Windows Mobile version of the software. After installing GM my 700wx began to slow and even freeze. While a soft reset fixed the problem it was persistent. After removing Google Maps my 700wx runs without problems/freezes again.

The problem is that I really enjoy Google Maps. Is there anywhere I can find a version, copy, etc. that will work without problem?

Thanks!
Bill

Install onto your storage card. Also make sure to delete the .cab file after installation as that can eat up some memory too.

I saved the file itself to my memory card, then installed the program to the device. I figured that Google Maps is a heavy program that might run better on the device itself rather than being used from the Memory Card.

I followed your instructions. I will be eager to see if the stability issues disappear.

If I may, what difference does the placement of the file make if it is the same file? Shouldn't I expect the same lack of stability? Is this because Google has made one generic version for Windows Mobile (all versions and all formats <Standard/Professional>)?

Thanks!
Bill
