On OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), the map in Lightroom's Map module is very slow to load. It takes several minutes before the first part of the map appears, and some parts don't load at all, saying instead "Sorry, we have no imagery here", even though the part in question is on Google Maps. When zooming in or out, it's the same, it takes very long to update.

Have you reported this to Apple so they can fix the bug before releasing the final version of 10.10?

I have also written this up in the Lightroom bug database, in case the problem turns out to be on the Lightroom side.

Thanks,
Ben

I have the same problem.
It is my impression that the Lightroom Maps module is based on flash. Perhaps an issue with that?

Installed Yosemite Public Beta 3 today and for me, Maps may not be the fastest still, but is actually useable again...
Sorry to hear about your different experience, but here, it definitely got better.

I now understand this problem. My Broadband connection is not great, 5Mb is typical. The Map module does not work at this speed. My 4G phone gets circa 15Mb and if I tether it to my iMac the Map module works perfectly. For some reason a slower speed is not just slow, it stops!

Interesting. If I click on "report a map error" at the bottom right of the Lightroom map window, it opens a google window(in a browser) and downloads the current area into the web browser. Guess what? lightroom then dutifully loads the mapping.

Very odd. But at least I can use lightroom in the interim.

Installed Yosemite on my iMac yesterday and the Map Module is now totally screwed.
Come on Adobe, the developer beta versions of Yosemite have been out long enough for you to have devised a fix by now!

Dave- are you on the release channel of Yosemite, and are you fetching road map, satellite or hybrid maps? I'm interested in why pre-fetching in the default browser (in my case, chrome) works for me and not for you.

I have been on the Yosemite beta programme since its start, since then the Maps module has not worked. It makes no odds whether I am on road map or hybrid. As I mention in a previous post if I rely on my poor home broadband that only achieves 6mb/sec download the maps module does not work. In my browser Google maps in any config works fine. In LR5 if I connect my phone that has a 4G connection that achieves 15mb/sec then the maps module works fine!

My "broadband" is about 3Mbps and it works fine with Google Maps, iPlayer HD and everything else. The issue with Lightroom maps and Yosemite is clear and obvious for me, and seems to be something to do with actually fetching the tiles - which is why I am interested that it doesn't work for you.

Tuesday with Mavericks - tick
Wednesday with Yosemite - fail

And that is a PITA for me.

The only Open Source equivalent - geosetter on a PC - is fine in a virtual machine on Yosemite. The issue seems to be lightroom related.

I am very involved with the Geographical Information Community so I have many mapping applications. They all work perfectly even with my lack lustre broadband, it is only Lightroom that has an issue! Adobe need to sort this out, it casts a shadow over what is otherwise a world class product!

Monitoring Lightroom using Activity Monitor.app, it looks like zooming in and out on the map, and searching for a new location triggers a flurry of upload activity from Lightroom (10’s of megabytes of data is being sent somewhere...).

I'm seeing exactly the same as Brian Aydemir, it's like the map module is flooding the upload link of my internet connexion while loading very slowly the tiles ! It stopped when the map is loaded.
I've upgraded to OSX 10.10 Yosemite recently.
