Old Version Google Maps
If you're not a fan of the newest version of Google Maps, Google Operating System found a quick way to access the old version of maps from an old URL. Google Maps is one of the most popular. Revert to an Older Version of Google Maps and Know. You can use both Google Maps versions 6 and 7 on the.
Update (June 25, 2015): Classic Google Maps is no longer available. If you've switched to the, you can quickly go back to the classic interface by clicking the 'Help' icon at the bottom of the page and picking 'Return to classic Google Maps'. You'll see a message that asks you if you want to permanently go back to the old interface or temporarily switch.
Another option is to bookmark this URL: (It will always send you to the standard Maps interface and you won't have to open the new interface first. Why would you switch to the old interface? Maybe you need to use the more advanced directions that let you add more than 2 destinations, maybe you like the terrain/photos/webcam layers or Maps Labs features like the distance measurement tools or the LatLng tooltip, maybe you miss the Pegman icon you could drag and drop to switch to Street View or you want to customize the printing format for directions.
You've probably noticed that the (with new colors, icons, labels, tooltips) is now also available in the classic Google Maps. If you hide the sidebar, you can make it look more like the new Google Maps. I've been using the new one for a while. It's disorganized, non-intuitive, slower, & generally makes no sense from a logic & organization standpoint. Google has gone down the rabbit hole into their own insane world where they don't improve things, they come up with BS, bad design, & gimmicks. Sound familiar? Yeah, Microsoft.
Reduce user power, reduce user customization, design that makes little sense except to them & maybe babies (giant colored blocks, large empty spaces). G is for Google. Infantile.totally infantile. I've been using the new one for a while.

Counter Strike Source Software on this page. When the Google Maps web app got a massive redesign earlier this year, I was pretty excited to try it out, but it was a fairly disappointing update for me. The slower load times, confusing street view, and bicyclist neglect are just a few of the reasons I don't enjoy it over the old classic Google Maps.
The brand new released this week is actually pretty useful, but not enough to change my mind. So, if you're feeling nostalgia for the service that actually worked, join me and revert back to old Google Maps forever. But first, let's talk more in depth about what's going on in the new Maps version. Scroll down to the bottom if you just want to revert right now. What's Wrong with New Google Maps?
Why did Google feel the need to shove the little Street View man into a corner? Is he in trouble? Old Google Maps: Street View guy on the left, with directional arrow during placement. Unlike the old version, the new street man doesn't let you know which way he's facing. There's no little green arrow to tell you if he's looking North, East, South, or West -pretty damn inconvenient, though once you're actually in Street View, you can see it.
It's Almost Useless for Bikers Great, new Google Maps offers directions with a bunch of weird multicolored lines, but how do I quickly look at terrain, and where in God's name are the bike routes?! Old Google Maps: Easier for bikers to navigate faster. Image via New maps? In fact, it doesn't even offer basic directions for bikers unless you click the three almost-invisible small dots in the search bar. Not a big deal, but as someone who bikes around town a lot, it bugs me. If You Ever Figure Out How to Print, You'll Be Disappointed Some of us still print things. It comes in handy during long trips when we know we won't have access to Wi-Fi and don't want to resort to on a mobile.
