Other versions of Google Maps on the web

Maps in Lite Mode is currently being upgraded to full Google Maps. If you’re using Google Maps on your computer and the map doesn’t scroll or pan smoothly, there are other versions you can use.

Switch between Google Maps versions

There are two versions of Google Maps on your computer you can use:

3D Mode: This is the standard Google Maps experience. You’ll see smooth zooming and transitions, 3D buildings, satellite images, and additional detail. Open Maps in 3D Mode.

2D Mode: This Google Maps version may work better on older or lower performance computers. It doesn’t have 3D images or WebGL, and it uses simple zooming and transitions. Open Maps in 2D Mode.

Use Google Search instead

If Google Maps isn't working on your computer, you can search for places, businesses, and directions, all on Google Search.
