Google Mobile Maps Asking English Users to Accept Swedish TOS

Dec 4, 2008 • 8:25 am | comments (2) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Other Google Topics

There are confirmed reports at Google Maps Help that users downloading the new Google Maps 2.3.2 to their phones are being asked to accept the terms of service before using it. The only issue is that the terms of service (TOS), in some cases, are coming up in a different language then the language the user knows.

For example, an English user said he opened it and the terms of service look to be in Swedish and thus he cannot understand it to agree to it. He asked if there was a way to switch to an English version of the terms of service?

Google Maps representative, Tom, confirmed the issue, saying:

Thanks for letting us know about this. I saw a similar instance earlier today (German text though) and it's currently being investigated. I'll let you know the outcome when I have more information.
