    When you have problems with an app it's a good idea to clear it from RAM.

    Close/Clear the app: With the problem app closed, double tap on the Home button to get the multitask bar. Tap and hold on any icon in the bar until they jiggle, then tap the minus sign on the problem app. This will remove it from RAM and insure a clean start the next time you launch the app.

    If that does not work try a restart,

    Restart: Hold down the power button until the power off slider appears. Slide it off. When the iPad finishes shutting down, hold down the power button again until the Apple logo appears. Apple recommends you restart the iPad at least once a month.

    and then a reset if that does not work.

    Reset: Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The iPad will reboot. This usually takes a bit longer than a restart.

    Are your maps now working after following Twerppoet's advice?

    Let us know if it's now been fixed

    Yes thanks, I rebooted my iPad and it's back to factory settings.
    I am an idiot though, I didn't save all my photos and have subsequently lost them into the big black hole of the never never?
    Apparently I should have saved them first to icloud ?? Does this sound right?

    Thanks again Twerppoet

    Restarting or resetting would not cause you to lose anything at all. A reset is just like rebooting a PC, there are no changes.

    What's happened to your photos, did you do a backup at all?
