Over 9 months ago, Google previewed the new Google Maps, since then many have opted to use it but if you haven't and don't want to, you are out of luck. Google announced that the old version (current version) of Google Maps is going to be replace by the new Google Maps in the next "coming weeks." Like it or not, you won't be able to use the old Google Maps.
Truth is, the new Google Maps, over the past 9 months, has really grown and added a lot (not all) of the missing features from the old Google Maps and even more.
I personally use to go back to the old Google Maps as a user to use some features but now I rarely ever need to go back to the old Google Maps.
Here is a video on the new Google Maps:
Here are some stories we published on it over the past several months:

- Google Maps Preview Available To All
- Google Maps Brings Share & Embed Feature To New Version
- Pegman Returns To Google Maps & Google Makes A Big Deal Of It

Of course, once it goes live to all, you will be hearing many complaints in the forums and on the blogs.
