The interface for showing traffic in the new Google Maps is very poor. The option to show the traffic layer is in fact under the search box, as @sathya says, but not always.

Seeing that there's no convinient way of doing this provided by Google, I've created a tiny online app for export of your starred locations: http://gexport.somee.com/ It's very primitive, but it does the job. (credits to endolith for the idea of implementation).

You can still see your Google Location History at https://maps.google.com/locationhistory/ assuming you have location tracking enabled. (Does it show check-in locations? I don't use that feature.

According to what I found on Google Support, if you're the verified owner of a local business listing, all you can do is report inappropriate images. I don't see a way to add a new image, except to add it to your Google Places for business account.

Click the "Gear" icon and choose "Search Settings". Click "Location". Put in as detailed a location as you want. (A full address, a city and state, just a state, a country, etc.) Save.

What URL are you using to access Google Maps? The default location would seem to be dependent on the Google Maps URL, or rather the "Top Level Domain" (TLD). For example, If I go to https://www.google.com/maps I see the US. If I go to .co.uk I see the UK. If I go to .co.id, I see Indonesia. .com.au - Australia, etc. Incidentally, if I visit .com (from ...

Sounds like you already know how to do this, but the traffic option is in the upper left hand side of your screen. If no traffic information is showing then traffic is either not reported in your area (unlikely but not impossible) or there is an error which is preventing it from being shown. I would do the following: Check back later in the day and see ...

With the new Google Maps Engine you can do everything you want. There is a tutorial that takes you through the basics of setting up your own map, but it does miss mentioning that in the information field of a pin you can add <img> tags.
