Hi, recently if anyone sends me a location in Whatsapp when I open it it opens in Citymapper rather than Google Maps. I can't see how this setting has changed, or indeed how I change it back. Can anyone help? Thanks.

Hi Chris,

sounds to me like you logged Citymapper as the standard app to open such links.

To change this simply go to Settings --> Apps and look for City Mapper. Click on the app name and scroll down a bit until you see "Defaults" and clear the defaults.

Next time you open a link to a location in WhatsApp the phone should ask you again which app to use.

Thank you. Unfortunately I couldn't find a simple Apps setting so in the end I uninstalled Citymapper, and hopefully when I reinstall it, it won't happen again.
