Google My Business Dashboard Adds Map To Address

The Google My Business dashboard typically by default only shows the address without a map on the info tab when you are looking to edit your address. But it seems Google is changing that to show a visual map even before you edit your location.

Cherie Dickey in the Local Search Forums seemed to first spot this change. I personally do not even see a map in my Google My Business dashboard, not until I clicked the edit icon on my address.

Here is what she sees:

Google My Business Address Yes Map

Here is what I see:

Google My Business Address No Map

Cherie said "There's also a user edit that needs to be addressed, and I'm thinking that's why two pins are showing on the map."

Anyway, the map being there is new. It is not a big deal but I guess Google wants to highlight where they dropped the pin so business owners can modify it?
