"New improved" Google Maps
For those who have recently had the "new improved" Google Maps thrust upon them, & who preferred using the old "classic" interface accessible from https://www.maps.google.com/?output=classic
but have discovered that the link to "classic" mode now merely takes them to a "lite" mode of the "new improved" interface, try the following link: https://www.google.com/lochp
. It will still display the "this version is updating soon" message but works for now.
If you're really annoyed by this enforced change, there is an online petition to bring back classic maps running at https://www.change.org/p/larry-page-ceo ... oogle-maps
