I can't currently access the Groundspeak forums so I don't know what is being said.

My understanding is that about a year or two ago, Google told Groundspeak that the number of views on their map product exceeded the API limit for free use. The outcome at that time (IIRC) is that GM became limited to Premium members only. But now I notice it's gone for us too.

Anybody have any more information? Using Google Maps was part of what I thought I was getting for my premium membership.

Aparently a number of premium users had their map preferences reset. I looked for the map preference setting in my profile settings but didn't find it. Someone pointed out that it's a big green button on the bottom of the sidebar on the map. You may need to open the left-side sidebar to see the big green button that I couldn't seem to find.
