    Googlemaps

    Googlemaps is screwed. I thought it was just me at first, but when I did some hunting for a fix I found that it's at Googlemaps' end.

    The problems are all over the show - probably loads more, but just some of the problems I've found:

    Cutting half the screen off.
    No routes showing up without reloading page.
    No dragging to modify route.
    Menu won't open
    No Streetview menu box.

    Apparently it's got something to do with making Googlemaps more accessible for mobiles. Which means, of course, anyone who still uses old fashioned desktops to plan their routes is screwed.

    Re: Googlemaps

    I spent over an hour the other week trying to walk round Barcelona looking for a shoe shop. Google Maps wouldn't let me do half the stuff I wanted to and I assumed it was my laptop
    I guess if I can't virtually walk the street to find the shop name to attempt to order some more of the great sandals I bought there three years ago then I'll have to start saving for another trip

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Re: Googlemaps

    my sister-in-law and her daughter posted that they were in Dublin, today, and the map shows:



    They seem a bit confused

    Not my SiL and daughter - They really are in Dublin - but Google. I don't think that map is quite right.

    That's not them, the shop I wanted was wide enough for cars and McDonalds was on the corner, I know the exact street.

    By luck I actually found a website this morning that sells the inter-bios one's http://www.modalia.co.uk/inter-bios....mmerce=#inicio I'm after, yay! Just need to go try them on now

    I was taking a look around our neighborhood and they seem to have reverted back to a map that is about 5 years old.
    a few weeks ago, it was more up to date.

    Re: Googlemaps

    I use Google maps every day on my mobile, as a sat nav in the van. It's live so it's useful for accident and congestion updates and can quickly change the route.

    The only minor problem I've had is the voice occasionally reverting to an American accent, which is quite amusing listening to an American woman pronounce our place names

    It's a lot more accurate than Apple Maps...
