New maps unusable
I tried the new maps when you first introduced them, but now you have removed the "use old Yahoo! maps" option. I commented last time & you didn't address the issues.
1) It is not easy to change the location of the map - before if you were in Palo Alto, CA, you could easily switch your location to Daytona Beach, FLA. Now you can't. Best option is to drive to Daytona & recenter afterwards.
2) You can't find businesses as easily as before. Monetizing and e-commerce are usually the driving force in web development. Why make it more difficult.
3) The previous three option (find, driving dir, and locate nears) addressed 98% of my needs before. Why only give me one - drive. Restore these options or I've be looking for a new map site that is is easier to use.
I will have to go back to Google thank you very much
Maps is not working with IE11. While I don't care for the new version of maps, at least I could access it. Since upgrading to IE11 I've lost all functionality. Please don't make me use a competitor, I really like Yahoo.

PLEASE bring back old map option... your new map SUCKS
Going to start using other map application
New maps are useless. If I need to find a location I am using google maps from now on. Yahoo thought they were doing something good, instead they made it worse. I liked the feature that you could go back to the old maps which was user friendly, this is not user friendly. I want a feature that I can just type in where I want to go or an address that I need. But you do not have that choice with the new maps. It sucks.
New map is totally unusable!!! Hate it!! Yahoo, your days are numbered as my Homepage!!!
The "old Yahoo maps" option was much easier to use. I don't always want directions, but just to find a location.
it will be great if you brief us second point.
You can search all three using header search box. Example :
Location : Sunnyvale,ca
Business : pizza near 1st avenue sunnyvale,ca ( use near/close term )
Direction : sfo to sjc ( use to or from )
