    What I really, really, really miss about Google Maps is the gazillion points I have set in My Places. And No third party app support showing those (I am not sure the API supports retrieving them). The lame part is I can fire up my Touch Pro 2 running WinMo 6.5 and the Google Maps app still works there.

    that is easy, you export your places as KMZ then import them into maps.nokia.com. They sync with the Nokia Maps app on your phone.

    Google is now claiming that Maps "never should have worked" in the first place, because Google "doesn't support Windows Phone and never did." Of course, a user-string-based ban on access is a specific decision by Google to block access... not a failure of functionality.

    F u c k google, I am so fed up with them using WP users as the enemy. I can't wait till Microsoft fixes the ability to rename my account so I can ditch Gmail for good.

    It is a bug because its not working on my iPhone either. It's not redirecting, but maps.google.com is opening in a totally ****ed up way that it's unusable. So yes, it's some backend issue.
    Getting redirected based on the user agent is a completely different issue than maps.google.com not displaying properly on your iPhone.

    This is getting comical. I just want to break out the popcorn and watch the Google fans defend their beloved company as it keeps infuriating millions of users.

    "Google broke search on your device for your OWN GOOD!"

    The torches and pitchforks will REALLY come out when Google overreaches and pisses off even their own fanbase.

    So one day after the Government antitrust case is over with just a slap on the wrist, Google now feels that they can continue their antitrust behavior.

    Sure but how do you import KMZ into maps.nokia.com? I haven't seen anything in the UI and a google search isn't turning up much.

    Most will probably just laugh at the comments made by Windows Phone users thinking "Well, I can use it. Should have got Android". Not to mention those that will also be "Microsoft are worst, look what they did in the past."
    Most Google fanboys will say that.

    Just wait until Google turns up the heat on Apple. You think Google versus Microsoft is hot? Wait until it's Google versus Apple (and the Great Gmail F***-Up impacts iOS just as badly in terms of disabling push e-mail).

    Many Google users won't realize how screwed they are until the next generation of awesome devices is out, and they go to leave their crappy Android crash-bricks behind for WP8.5, BlackBerry 10, or iOS 7, only to learn that they'll lose all their e-mail, contacts, calendars and ability to upload and view YouTube videos as well.

    You might not see it now. But it will happen. Google is very arrogant, and is putting its peeing contest with Microsoft ahead of user experience.

    But wait... the government said that Google said they'd do good and regulate themselves. They totally sounded sincere! How could this happen?

    Gmaps site absolutely works and works flawlessly on IOS. I just checked on my 5g iPod touch. This is ONLY about Google's maliciousness against WP and its users.

    Everybody knows Google maps has never worked in mobile IE, right? RIGHT? I know because I forget all the time and try to load maps.google.com, and it's never worked. Ever.

    Seriously, folks.
