    Its slow and not easily usable on all browsers. The classic on is much quicker. Street view is a pain to start working.

    I find the offline caching is now rubbish, I go quite a few areas with no signal so download the area. Its not very intuitive now.

    I find it rather clunky on my work PC now. Old Google maps ran a lot smoother.

    I hate it, and does anyone know how to access streetview on it? Will use the old one as long as its an option.
