I tried new Google Maps on desktop. It has poor performance right now.

  1. Geo location is wrong. When I use old Google Maps, it shows me Burnaby, BC, Canada as my location. But when new Google Maps gave me Chillwack, which is not my address supposed to.
  2. Loading Speed: old Google Maps is fast and operated smoothly. New Google Maps is very slow and some times stucked, can not shown 100%.

Regarding the first problem, I think Google use IP address to locate the user. Actually, ip address database provided by ISP is not that updated. There is about hundred miles distance, or maybe the other city nearby.

I will try it later and see if it is getting better.
