Delete Google Cache

I have noticed that the "Cache-GLM" file for Google Maps tends to get quite large (5-10-15 MB) over time. The file is found unader Application Data\GoogleMaps.
Other than taking a little longer to load maps I have noticed that manually deleting this file has no other apparent effect on Googe Maps.
Due to how much internal memory this file tends to eat up, especially over lots of Google Maps usage, I would like to know if anyone can figure out a way to either limit the size of the file or have it automatically deleted (maybe on reboots or something)

Maybe if someone could write a script to have this file deleted that would just be placed in the Windows/Startup folder?

Thanks!

Re: Delete Google Cache

I have mine stored on my card so I dont have to worry about it. ClearTemp will delete google maps cache when I want to clean up.

Re: Delete Google Cache

I found this thread googling for a fix to the 40MB of cache on my TP2...I don't like messing with binaries so I tried uninstalling and reinstalling to the storage card, it seems to default to /Storage Card/Application Data/GoogleMaps/cache now without modifying anything. Only difference is now I have to keep the memory card inserted to run the app but I didn't swap cards often anyway so thats no trouble.

Just remember to delete the old cache folder if it doesn't do it during the uninstall or it'll still be wasting 30-40MB and you'll still get frequent memory errors.
