Please note that this is a preview. And an impressive one. It was one of the most talked presentations of the Keynote on May 15th in the Moscone center. A major service gets a major overhaul. If that isn't a big thing, I don't know. Millions of people using it every day.

If you use the normal standard map view, everything you are used to are still there. Well, it's a map at last. Of course it's there. But now in a more nicely way. The personalization is great, and you can see your favorite places right up. You also can choose to see recommendations from your circles on Google+. I see no flaws in the map view. Latitude seems not to work at this time with the new maps.

The Earth view, formerly satellite, looks amazing. However, you can not zoom in as deeply as with the old maps. If you zoom in, you see some weird graphics sometimes. When using the tilt feature to have a 3D view, sometimes the areas looking a little bit strange. That is probably from low resolution photos of some areas, and I'm sure it will get changed quickly. Remember that this is a preview. That's why thereis a feedback button, too. You should use it if you find some weird things on the map.
