CODE :-

    /**
     * Update marker position and icon
     */
    private void setMarker() {
        synchronized (OBJ_LOCK) {
            if (mLatitude != 0.0 || mLongitude != 0.0) {
                mRotatedBitmap = rotateBitmap(mOriginalMarkerBitmap, mBearing);

                if (mRotatedBitmap != null) {
                    mCurrentPositionIcon = BitmapDescriptorFactory
                            .fromBitmap(mRotatedBitmap);
                    mCurrentLocationMarker.position(new LatLng(mLatitude,
                            mLongitude));

                    mCurrentLocationMarker.icon(mCurrentPositionIcon);
                    mCurrentLocationMarker.anchor(0.5f, 0.5f);

                    if (currentMarker != null && mCurrentPositionIcon != null) {
                        currentMarker.setIcon(mCurrentPositionIcon);
                        currentMarker.setAnchor(0.5f, 0.5f);
                        currentMarker.setPosition(new LatLng(mLatitude,
                                mLongitude));
                    } else {
                        currentMarker = mGoogleMap
                                .addMarker(mCurrentLocationMarker);
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    }

Already checked following #SO Released unknown bitmap reference , but not helpful at all for me.

How to&Answers:

This worked for me: don’t use a dead marker reference: currentMarker can be not null but at the same time might be referred to a previous map.

Always discard marker references when you don’t need them (onDestroy or onPause), and always get new ones, simply don’t rely only on currentMarker!=null

    ...

    if (currentMarker == null)
        currentMarker = mGoogleMap.addMarker(mCurrentLocationMarker);

    if (mCurrentPositionIcon != null) {
        currentMarker.setIcon(mCurrentPositionIcon);
        currentMarker.setAnchor(0.5f, 0.5f);
        currentMarker.setPosition(new LatLng(mLatitude,mLongitude));
    }

    ...

@Override
public void onPause() {
    currentMarker.remove();
    currentMarker = null;
}

Answer:

Facing the same issue, I added a mMap.clear() in the onResume function of the activity.
I also had the problem with the clustered markers. Creating a new clustermanager in the onResume function fixed this:

@Override
protected void onResume() {
    super.onResume();
    setUpMapIfNeeded();
    mMap.clear();
    mClusterManager = new ClusterManager<ItemMarker>(this, mMap);
    ...
}

Hope this helps …
