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. Of course, this is tied to your Google account, so you'll need to be signed in for it to work. More information from Google Maps Support: Location settings.

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. If you have searched for an address, the option is missing: Delete the address, and the option will appear: The option is also available when you get directions. In fact, it is ...

First enter Street View mode in desktop Google Maps. Notice the overlay in the upper-right corner with the address and Street View date, and next to the date is a clock-cycle icon.

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).

Yes, there is. Add the optional parameter language to the request URL: https://www.google.com/maps/embed/v1/MODE?key=API_KEY&language=en See the API reference for further information.

This is a real pain point for me too. I get around the issue by searching for directions between my desired location and a second location that is a suitable distance away. For example, instead of "Ocala, FL" try searching for "Ocala to Orlando" or even "Ocala to Miami". This does require some rudimentary geographical knowledge about the wider area you're ...

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. For those who miss Latitude, there's now Google+ location sharing.) Also in the new Google Maps, "My custom maps" is in the menu below the search box (it was ...

I think what you're asking is how to get an embedable version of a map from http://maps.google.com The link for an embedable map is down at the bottom, inside the gear icon: After that, click on the Embed map tab at the top: From there you can copy the source HTML for the map

The Lite mode of the new Google Maps does not include the 3D Earth view or other 3D functionality. You can see if you are in lite mode by looking for the "Lite mode" indicator in the bottom right corner of the map. Lite mode supported browsers and operating systems The new Google Maps may default to Lite mode for older browsers and operating ...

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.

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 ...

There are a number of options, depending on what you want to do. Try any one of these: You could just put your coordinates into a URL, like this: https://www.google.com/maps/place/21°31'01.4"N+100°49'43.4"W/ If you use Google+, you can use the "Share" option and share it to a Circle that contains just yourself. Click the "Gear" icon in the lower right, ...

Click on the settings (gear icon) in the bottom right corner. You then get the option to "Share and embed map": This gives you the URL for the map (optionally shortened): More info... https://support.google.com/maps/answer/144361?p=newmaps_shorturl&rd=1

Quoting from this Google support page: As previously announced, Internet Explorer 11 launched on October 17, 2013, and as a result, we've discontinued support for Internet Explorer 9. Organizations that depend on old versions of Internet Explorer may want to consider a dual browser strategy. When Google discontinued IE8 support in 2012, that was ...

Do you (or did you) live or work at Palmer Ranch? In the "old" Google Maps, you are able to set your Home and Work location: If you are seeing the new Google Maps, you can get to the My places list by clicking on the cog wheel in the lower-right corner: Now, I'm not convinced that Google Maps always uses your home as its default location. Another ...

This is easy, I don't know why you couldn't find it yourself :)

But if you click on the pin (or on the small red icon representing a restaurant), it will open the details under the search box. (I also tried it with Ignite and other results seen on the map and I got the same result—the details under the search box.)

It's not really easy, especially after Google Maps Update, which is still not able to load KML layers. But you can use this tool to search for the walking/citibiking directions: http://dangoldin.com/citibike-station-directions/

It is fairly simple. What you need to do is follow steps that are mentioned below for adding multiple destinations.... From point A to Point B - add the destinations and if needed swap the destinations by dragging the "O" with either mouse+left click hold or the left button+ curser hold and moving. Once you add the destinations hit anywhere or hit find ...

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 ...
