HATE is such a strong word. I absolutely HATE this version of live view. I have given myself months of trying to remain open minded and to get accustom the change. It still is HORRIBLE and pretty much useless.
I just tried it. Not dots are showing and I had to refresh my google chrome three times and then three dots showed up. Pathetic!
The CTO clearly said that they won't be removing this version. So sad!
Looks like they finally listened - Today I now have the option on the Live View page for globe or map view.
Map view seems to work great and I have no idea why it took so long to happen....
Thank the lord!!!! Now, all we need is the states to be shown on hover so I can see where people are coming from. I see the USA is one big landmass with no state lines just yet. I am so glad they are finally doing this!!!!!
