Utilizing mapsengine.google.com

 I have been following your videos to create custom maps.  I created the original map as noted in Session 328, and then typed in the search engine “mapsengine.google.com” but I do not get the screen shown in your video.  Instead I get Google Maps for Work – Business Mapping Software.  I’m not sure what I am doing wrong?  I’m trying to follow exactly as you were doing in the video.  I did find the first time I was not logged in so I closed and reopened Google to log in thinking that might be the problem but I continue to get the same Google Maps for Work.  Confused

The “maps engine light” has changed. It is now http://www.google.com/mymaps OR, you can go to the regular maps.google.com and click the 3-line menu at the left of the empty search bar. My Maps shows up as a menu option.

The rest should work the same. 

Thanks for the heads-up, I will go make a note on the video.
