Google New Maps No right click

If you go to map.google.com and right click on the map it will give you the cords.

One way

One way is to click on the little "wheel" in the upper right hand corner and then select Classic Maps. On the new map screen that appears you will be able to right click on a spot and select "Drop LatLng Marker".

I think once you have the New Google Maps that going to maps.google.com will always bring up the new version of Google Maps

I read your question and since it's not possible to do what you want I gave you a possible solution that requires a couple of mouse clicks instead of not being able to do it at all. If you only want to use the New Google maps then your out of luck. If you really want and need co-ordinates in the New Google maps than I don't see whats LOL with my suggestion.rolleyes

Another option is to use

Another option is to use Google Earth. Drop a pushpin, right click on the pushpin, select Properties. Coordinates are at the top of the dialog box.

Do you mean right click on map, right turn on red, etc.? But what about left turn on red when turning from a one-way street onto another one-way street? laugh out loud

Classic Maps - What's Here

I have the "new" Google Maps and found I couldn't get coordinates for a specific location.

I clicked on the Tools icon in the top right-hand corner and selected Classic Maps. It asked if I wanted to make the change permanent and I clicked Dismiss.

When I right-clicked on a specific location a drop down selection box appeared. Initially I selected "Directions from Here" and an icon appeared on the map at that spot, but no coordinates. Then I selected What's Here, and the coordinates for that point appeared in the dialog box.

It turns out, you can get the coordinates by right clicking on a spot and selecting "What's Here"

Search box

Thanks, but I'd term it "the search box", as those coordinates suddenly appear up there, not in the sort of pop-up I envisioned.

This is great news--that was one of my bigger annoyances with New Maps.

Which is why I'm sticking with Classic Maps. Even the print feature isn't flexible enough.

sticking with Classic Maps - good luck with that

Are you new to Google? You might be able to use classic maps for a month or two, but like any other Google product you will soon no longer have that option. A few months ago I opted to use the "classic" Gmail editor, their new mail composer is awful and has generated lots of negative feedback in forums all over the web. This week my option to use the classic composer went away, if I want to still use them for email I have to try to use the broken one.

New one needs work

I am sticking with the old one both on my computer and phone. The new version seems to be a work in progress, and the work isn't done yet.

I believe what DanielT describes is the Classic Map interface, not the new map interface. The new map interface does not offer right clicking at the moment. I'm right clicking the new map now. Nothing happens.

I agree, the new map sucks. I search for an address and click Street View. I got a big black screen with nothing in it. Under that black screen, there's a (tiny) thumbnail of the street view. Street view doesn't work as expected. The new map is slower than classic map. This isn't a finished product.

Out of touch

They seem to be functioning from featureitis-adding things that their propeller heads in the labs think are cool, instead of asking users if it's necessary or wanted. The stuff we do want has been removed, and the stuff they added isn't wanted. The old saying about "if it ain't broke.." applies here, and it wasn't broke until they started tinkering with it.

why

Right you are. I knew I had enabled new maps at some point (but more often use Google Earth), so when I saw behavior similar that which DanielT described I assumed I was on New. I was not. Sorry.

Anyone found how to send to GPS from the new Google Maps.

Use the classic GMaps instead.

So maybe it will comeback. Goole is famous for removing features and then replacing. I think they do it so they can see how many complaints they get to see whether anyone is actually using the features.
