My google map dropdown menu does not have sequence with colors and letters as a choice.  Instead, my only choice is sequence by number.  Which is better to use if I have a lot of markers for a long trip?  Thanks!!

Yes, they’ve removed the Sequence with colors and letters. too bad.

See this other discussion for more detail: Google My Maps sequence of colors and numbers

Let us know if the sequence by number works ok for you.

If not, I can try to share one of my older maps with you and, if you use that as a starting point, you should have the sequence of colors and letters option.
