Looks like Classic Maps is going away soon with the upgrade to Google My Maps. Received this email today. I will be sad to see Classic Maps go away.:(

Just like with classic My Maps, you can work on a map with others, save driving directions, add photos and videos, and more. With the new Google My Maps, you can also do things like:

• Share your map similar to how it works for a Google Doc.
• Use different colors to make parts of your map stand out.
• Label your features directly on the map.
• Import locations from a spreadsheet.

Hi Scott,

That is regarding "My Maps" the tool for making your own custom maps.
(I made a post earlier in the private Pro forum about this.)

Email said: "Classic My Maps on maps.google.com will no longer be available.

That's not talking about Classic maps or map search but mentioned the old Classic "My Maps".
Different animal.


That's not to say Classic maps won't go away soon. I think it will. But that's not what that email was about.

Here is SEland's post about it: <a href="http://searchengineland.com/google-revives-upgrades-maps-203400">Google Revives, Upgrades My Maps</a>
