I wrote my first letter to Google with a suggestion. It’s interesting to note that this is the first time I can recall a change to the Google system being what I consider a step backward. Not a bad track record
Subject: recent changes to GMaps Directions printing is bad
I very much dislike the new way that GMaps Directions print out. The new Google Map printing system was installed in the last few days before July 25th, 2006
It is very important to me that I see the entire local area of my destination. With the new system, I can’t see it.
It’s important because:
– GMaps are occationally hard to follow in the final few turns of a map
– I want to see cross streets so I know when I am close
– I want to see the local area so the map is useful if someone asks me to “go around the corner” from my stated destination.
Please put the ability to have large maps back into the printing feature of Google Maps.
