Geocaching Google Maps Are Back!

Google Maps are coming back to Geocaching.com on May 22nd!

What do you think? Do you care? Did you miss this mapping service when it was gone?

For regular members, will this make you pay to become a premium member?

    For me, it isn’t going to make much of a difference. I am already a Premium Member, and I have been using the greasemonkey workaround to get the google maps anyway.

    Another PMO function for GS to rake in more cash… total garbage!

    Can’t say I agree with you here Ian. I think Gavin quite clearly outlined in this post ( http://www.notaboutthenumbers.com/2012/02/16/new-geocaching-com-maps-and-the-google-issue/ ) the type of costs GC.com were facing with the changes Google were introducing. If GC.com wanted to rake in the cash they wouldn’t bother bringing Google Maps back at all – it’s a further cost they have to pay!

    Couldn’t believe the uproar over this when Google Maps got dumped. Big deal. In fact, I like the Mapquest/OpenStreetMap maps better. Oh, I know, what blasphemy.

    Really, why does everybody get all worked up over online maps anyway? Gee whiz, guys, all you need are the coordinates.

    YESSSSSS!!!!!! I am so happy they’re back. I was so bummed when they left. The replacement maps were clunky, slow and completely lame. It was such a bad experience and reflected poorly on both parties. Good on ’em for working things out.
    Made my day!
