Post "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.

(This msg also cross-posted on GC forum).

Thank-you for posting that. I loathe the new Google Maps. I'm off to add my name to the petition.

Cheers,

I prefer the new interface... I'm probably in the minority here for that though.

Given it is an expensive to operate but free of charge service I suspect not a lot will come of this, but best of luck!
