Google map can't show in android 5.1.1(i.mx6q)

Hi All,

     We are using i.MX6DL/i.MX6Q with the same board running Android 5.1.1(Kernel 3.14.52) to run google map, but find that only i.MX6DL platform can show the google map while i.MX6Q platform can't, following is the failed picture(picture 1-1).

     To analyse the potential reason, we have taken some works as below:

     1. Install the newest google frame; (picture 2)

     2. Update the google play service:

         2.1) 12.6.85(020300-197041431);

         2.2) com.google.android.gms_12.8.66_(020300-200774163)-12866006_minAPI21(armeabi-v7a)(nodpi)_apkmirror.com

     3. Attempt different  version of google map

        3.1) com.google.android.apps.maps_9.67.0-967002132_minAPI19(armeabi-v7a)(213,240dpi)_apkmirror.com

        3.2) com.google.android.apps.maps_9.67.0-967002142_minAPI21(armeabi-v7a)(213,240dpi)_apkmirror.com

        3.3) com.google.android.apps.maps_9.80.2-980200142_minAPI21(armeabi-v7a)(213,240dpi)_apkmirror.com

    Hope you can help us to solve the problem ASAP.

    Thanks a lot.

Hi Hao,

By 9.57.1 do you mean the gms package? If so can you post the gms package or a link to them?

Our R&D wants to replicate the problem and does not see it, and wants the files to see if it is some error in them.

BR,


Glen

Hi Glen,

Thanks for replied.

9.57.1 mean the Google Map Version, which I downloaded from https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/maps/maps-9-57-1-release/

And the OpenGapps built-in version(Latest version in 2018 Dec 12), it will not showing any layer of maps(Showing like Jimmy's image).

The most likely cause of the issue is that you use the OpenGapps package, that is not guaranteed to work on all Android builds, instead of the official Google Apps package. Try the later Android build.


Have a great day,

Hi Artur,

     As your suggestion, we tried android 5.1.1, android 6.0.1 and android 8.0.0, but found that i.mx6q still couldn't show google map in default mode, while i.mx6dl did.

    In android 8.0.0 running in i.mx6q, we can browse the google website.

    Is there any potential fault that we haven't taken?

    Hope your helps.

    Thanks a lot.
