It's too bad that we can't use an alternative service and/or have options as to which service we want to use. Mapquest offers a similar function, but only for vehicles with OnStar (GM) and Sync (Ford) systems.
i had the issue of SEVERAL features disappearing from Google Maps and most were resolved by updating Chrome which does not provide a popup or notification when an update is available. supposedly there is a symbol on the header somewhere. i have not noticed this symbol, but blogs report this.
now, i still have not retrieved the distance measuring tool and it is apparently gone for good. have not seen it in a long time or its been moved and i have not run across it yet
