Google Maps is now blurry, since the last update it seems. I cant be sure its the update but I think this is the first time I used Google Maps since the last update, which I have set at automatic. It's readable, generally, but clearly something is wrong.

A search doesn't seem to find recent problems like this, most info I find on this problem is old, even dating back to 2013.

The text in the info panes, etc is fine, just the map is blurry or fuzzy, especially on secondary roads.

Google earth satellite images look fine, except the route numbers on the roads are blurry like on maps

You may have accidentally zoomed web page(s). Reset the page zoom on pages that cause problems.

Thanks for the help and attempted help. It was in fact the zoom.

I use control +/- all the time to zoom web sites and .pdf's, and must have accidentally done that on Google maps instead of the scroll zoom or left click zoom-in/right click zoom out built in to Google maps. I'm so automatic with holding Crtl +/- I'm sure that must be what I did.

Resetting zoom was the fix.
