Pegman comes in a variety of styles, eg:

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. Click that icon to pick a different date. See Go back in time with Street View in the Google Maps blog for details and screen shots.

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.

You could use Google My Maps to generate a map with directions then save it to Google Drive and share it like a file.

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).

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 ...

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, ...

If you click the cog icon at the bottom, and then click "Share or embed map", you get a link. If you email the link to yourself (I know, sounds archaic) and open it on your phone, you can choose to open the directions in the Google maps app. The great thing about this method is it can transfer a custom route you made when dragging the route to make it go a ...

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 ...

I am also a frequent My Maps user. On 16 September, I received an email I had been expecting for some time (based on previous announcements from Google about Maps) saying Hi, We want to let you know that in the coming months, we're upgrading the content you created in My Maps. All of the maps that you've created will automatically move to the new ...

Complaints about the lack of such a feature (I think perhaps on 'Earth' view rater than satellite) are recent so I think there is, as yet, no simple way to remove the labels. However there is this advice from John Mee June 24 (presumably 2014): Either: a) Hit the "?" on the new maps and select "return to the old google maps". On the old maps in ...

You can do this in the new version of Maps. (See the official announcement.) Go to Street View; Click on the clock-like icon in the upper-left corner, just below the address; Navigate to a previous date. Now: Before: P.S.: Note that the number of previous views varies from place to place, in some cases just the current one being available.

Persistence paid off - by having a more recently verified listing (address, phone & website) and reporting the bad entry, we were able to have the other entry removed.

Click in the "Search" field. You should get a menu with a few of your recent searches, as well as an entry for "My maps". Click that and you'll get a list of your maps as well as a link to "See all your maps" which will open up the new "My Maps" tool. Alternatively, click the "gear" icon in the lower right and choose "My Places". (That's the old "My ...

The transport companies or authorities wanting to provide their data to Google, must do so themselves. See the Google Transit Partner program

I'm pretty sure that a single individual not related to the city transport enterprise cannot do this. Among other things, you will not have access to the official data feed from the bus company, and so you might not keep it up to date. (I looked into this a while ago, when I set up a website with maps of my city's bus-routes because the transport ...

@Ynhockey is correct, alt + enter gives a full paragraph break (2 lines). For a single line break (next line), press Alt + Command + Enter

This question has stumped me for a while and finally I found a solution on the official Google forum. The solution is that you need to press Alt + Enter. Update: Ctrl + Enter seems to work now as well.

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/

Classic example of a location theory - check this to find out more about solving this kind of problems. You could try to follow one of those algorithms or implement it i.e. in javascript and use google maps api to put it together

If you are on web, on the top right corner next to your pic, you have a "Plus" button, click there and share it with yourself. This is how I saved a route with custom points I just made...

If you're in edit mode (i.e. signed in to Google), in the lower-right corner of the white box that covers half the map look for a tiny almost invisible down arrow. Click it and several optional "styles" will pop up. One of them is good old sat view. If you're not signed in just looking a map, just click the "sat" icon in the lower left corner. ...

You can work around this by setting the “start time” of your journey back a few minutes, so that Google’s more conservative estimate of walking speed will still put you at a further bus stop at an earlier moment in time.

Just click and hold the letter label, starting destination A, click the actual A and hold and drag to where you want it in the list of stops. It's slow to move, so be patient!
