    If your internet connection is too slow then the satellite view wont work efficiently, Make sure you have reasonable speed in your connection. Flow of data is more important in order to get proper functioning of Satellite view and also make sure you expose your mobile to the sun clearly.

    Change the Settings as Follows:

    Go to Menu --> Settings --> Location and security settings --> Enable use wireless Networks and Use GPS Satellites

    Google Maps works differently with different versions of Android and also with the configuration of the Handset you are using.

    Enabling Satellite view occupies more Ram and it takes lots of processor energy, if your mobile handset is not having a very good configuration then it will be very difficult to access the satellite view using the network.

    Other reason might be the spped of the "network data", usually the Google maps works very well with Wifi connections and other other 3G level data speed.

    I recommend you to check the configuration and the network speed about your mobile thoroughly.

    Dear friend,
    As you have mentioned the problem, this problem could be caused because of these -
    The browser is not supported/functioning in the proper manner. or the mobile is not having the proper speed to connect with the internet. To solve this problem I will advise you to use the high speed internet to open the google map then when you have upgraded your browser/google map. Now you have got the solution of this problem.





    Thanks..........

    Re: Google Maps satellite layer is not working in android?

    If you are using any app for Google Map then it may be a problem of that app and it is not
    possible so say withaut knowing the name of that app. But if it is not a problem due to app
    or you are not using it through any app then it must be a problem due to slow internet
    connection only.

    Actually Gmail Map have to upload lot of data with graphics interface. So for uploading
    such amount of data it required a good internet speed. Due to slow speed only Google map
    creating problem to show data.

    In the case of satelite version it required moch more speed so just you need to use any more
    speed plan or 3G connection. If you are using a WiFi connection then coverage area is also a
    factor for internet speed.

    hello..

    it may be due to some reason this issue will be rising..

    due to slow internet speed...
    for this you should use the 3G network..
    or you should use the wifi for that...
    because some applications need much speed to process data..

    just follow the listed below steps in order to solve your issue..

    go to home screen..
    then go to setting option..
    then tap on "Location and security"..
    then enable the "wireless network"..
    and use the GPS satellite..
    i hope you got it..


    thanks..
