It looks like the same Tesla I saw two hours ago in Ljubljana center, being charged in front of a hotel.

Teslas are easily recognisable.

Goodbye Classic Google Maps.

At least for me, it doesn't allow me anymore to switch to Classic Maps.

I had the same problem a couple days earlier (see some pages back)

(you can replace .nl with the Slvenian version
That'll give you some extra days on the old version.

The 45° project has been apparently terminated too.

I found out, that Lite version works almost as fast as Classic. At least that.

Personaly, I said goodbye to the old GMaps, one year ago I think, and I don't regret it, I think that the "new" (but not so new anymore...) is better.

I don't see any positive point with new GMaps - it is painfully slow even on 100 Mbit lines, has animations that just hog computers and have no use at all, user interface is not clear at all. They didn't address those issues at all, listening to users is not a priority with Google. Even Google Earth program is much faster when loading imagery.

Also I take back about Lite version. It has practically no functionalities, you can't even move route points with a mouse. It's useless even if much faster.

Not sure what you mean with passing areas. In the glimpses I saw, the warning lines were used :

They mean that passing normally is not advisable. In areas where passing is possible, shorter lines are used:


In either case, passing is of course illegal if it cannot be done in a safe manner and without affecting other vehicles, and speed limits apply. Solid center lines are used less in Norway, mainly in some high traffic roads, tunnels, and in intersections:

These lines you are of course not allowed to cross, and you always have to keep to the right of the yellow ones. Having these all over the place in Norway would be unpractical.

For more advanced options one should download Google Earth. It allows to choose which labels display and which don't, it allows to save screenshots of satellite and street view, it allows to see pevious versions of satellite images,...

Yeah, that's good and all but just wanting to see satellite imagery without labels is anything but advanced, it's basic. Yet Google for whatever [bleep]ing reason took it out.

I've the same problem with Bing Maps. It offers high resolution images, especially in cities, but no way to remove those damn labels!

You need to look better

You need to un-tick that box at the bottom of the fold-out-screen.

That's strange, it's super fast on my computer and it's a real pleasure to use it, it's fluid and much beautifuller. But I only have a middle-priced laptop and a 50Mbps line...

But yes, with bad internet access, it's really hard to have something with it (I experienced going back to a 1Mbps internet)

The problem with the new Google Maps is that is hogs a lot of graphics card memory and doesn't work that well with some devices. that is what slows it down for many users. They conceived it as a "mobile-first" platform and it is not really optimized for desktop viewing yet. It works beautifully on my smartphone and quite badly on my laptop (6GB RAM, Intel Core i7 2.0GHz).

People are reporting widely fluctuating performance with the new Google Maps, and it doesn't seem to be related to system specs.

I dislike the new general layout and especially the way planned routes are mapped. I like the simplicity of simple A to B markers with a blue line. I don't want to see alternative routes unless I select them. Not to mention ridiculous transit alternatives.
