The Google Maps map remains available as an additional map laye
Maybe not the right place to ask but...
So I went to check out the new functionality (or lack thereof). Initially I got the Here map visually, no option for Google maps. Was initially disappointed. But then I came back to re-read what was still avail (layers). I set my layer back to Google maps and all looked fine again.
Now I will say that I'm prepping my routes for a Garmin GPS anyway, so that's Here maps on the device and in my experience has the best chance of the GPS actually using the route correctly. I was doing routeing compares and adding waypoints to force the default routing to do the same as what Here would have done. I also see that streetview is still functional, I assume that means that is continuing to be available??
Now with the changes as of today (5/21/20) , with Here selected in the first place as the default, and manually turning on Google as the layer, I still get to see Google maps graphics, but I get Here routing overlaid on that. Is that right?
As I understand it, assuming above is correct, the only downside in my case is I have to manually pick the Google layer. It would be nice to be able to set that. I do prefer the Google maps visually vs Here's. Glad I can still see them manually setting at least.
I do find in rural areas map differences where a road does or does not end in the same place, more often with Google being right so that sucks, but not the end of the world, as sometimes it's the other way around.
Note that the Google layer still reflects the default for Gold users (me), I assume that's just a graphic miss on your part since it did not default to that layer.
