Yeah, I found that link, too. Of course it’ll get broken if enough people hit it and Goggle has a notice at the top that it’s going away soon anyway. Sigh.
New Google Maps features:
[li]No scroll bar for zoom level.[/li][li]No Drag-to-zoom.[/li][li]Four, count 'em, four icons to take you to images![/li][li]Clumsy distance measuring.[/li][li]No choice of units for distance.[/li][li]Automatic drop-down of last two searches to clutter screen.[/li][li]No main menu in full maps, only in Lite.[/li][li]Zooming in pops up images, whether you want 'em or not: I guess they’re really big on people seeing images.[/li][/ul]
So they took away some of my frequently used and useful functions and substituted… well, nothing.
Does anyone have a suggestion for a substitute map site? I’ve been reading some of the rage on forums and I’ve tried MapQuest, Yahoo and Bing. None of those have the usefulness of Google Classic Maps. I really want and miss the zoom bar and drag-to-zoom.
