We've recently bought a Lenovo all in one PC, with Windows 8.1.
Our problem is that the maps on "Open Streetmap" aren't visible. We can get into the website and see the menus, but can't see any maps. Our old PC, running XP, shows the maps with no problems. Also we have no problems with other online maps, like Streetmap, Googlemaps etc.
Open Streetmap is excellent and colourful compared to Googlemaps - and we really want to continue to be able to use it.
We assume that there is a setting wrong somewhere on our computer. Can anyone advise, please?
Open Streetmap works for me on Windows 7 and Opera. If you want UK maps though, Streetmap is much better as it uses Ordnance Survey maps. On Open Streemap the road I live down is missing, which does not impress me.
I've tried Internet Explorer 11, also Firefox. Perhaps we've got to try more browsers.
I know there's some shortcomings with Open Streetmap, and admittedly I don't use it very often, mainly I use a combination of Streetmap and Googlemaps.
In defence of Open Streetmap though, it is good for showing detail in towns, and was excellent last year for a driving holiday in NW Spain, showing car parks and one way streets not indicated on some other maps. And it's much clear when printed then Googlemaps, which I find totally anaemic and boring.
