    Google Maps Gets a Menu & Interface Update

    As many of you know, I've been trying to drag myself, kicking and screaming over to new Google maps. But it's super hard teaching an old dog new tricks.

    Kinda glad now that I stuck with Classic for so long, because New Maps just got an update and sounds like the nav has changed quite a bit.

    Alex Chitu at Google Operating System has the scoop...

    New Menu for Desktop Google Maps

    If you like Google Maps' mobile apps for Android and iOS, there's a good news: the desktop site now has a similar interface. The search box has a small icon for directions and another icon for the navigation menu, which lets you enable layers for satellite imagery, traffic, transit, bicycling, terrain, use My Maps, share maps, print maps and more.

    The new hamburger-style menu adds features that were previously scattered in at least 4 other places: 2 menus at the bottom of the page, a satellite thumbnail and the search box.
    Above is just a snippet, so head over to read the rest.

    What do you guys think? Do you like the new layout better than before???
