Please add your vote and opinion to that thread, which is in the official Adobe feedback forum. Adobe does pay attention to that forum and the number of people reporting a problem.
I have also joined in the thread listed its very annoying clean install mainly because Adobe said all worked ok after the Yosemite release.
I understand this is the weekend and you may look on Monday but please take a look at the other thread also 3 months and nothing nadda at least give us a clue please
Identical problem here.
LR5.6 / OSX 10.10
Maps worked fine on OSX10.9 on Tuesday. U/g to 10.10, Maps broken. Impossibly slow fetching tiles, some give up with no mapping available.

may contain pointers for you.
This is 3 months old, and a fix would be much appreciated.
Let's keep the conversation focused in the official Adobe feedback forum thread: Lightroom: Issue with Map module in OS X 10.10 (Yosemite). Past experience shows that Adobe employees participate in that forum much more frequently than they do here (because it is their officially designated forum for providing feedback).
So can I say Adobe don't fix bugs, just to warn people? Is that ok? :-)
That's perfectly OK from my perspective. But there are already many, many threads in this forum complaining about the issue:
I think many of the participants in these forums, including me, would agree that Adobe is very slow at fixing bugs in LR and not very good at communicating with its users about the bugs. But then, most large software vendors are not very good at communicating with their users.
I ran a 1000+ station network for 20+ years until I retired in July. If I'd had issues sitting in my ticketing system for three months with a brief acknowledgement followed by silence I think I would probably have lost my job early.
This silence, and lack of communication is just appalling. Open Source is often better supported.
Just wanted to say i thought this was the official forum i have no problem in giving feedback my question is does that mean no one from adobe reads these issues
If that is so what a waste of space this is not worth the space on the servers
Does adobe do a telephone tech support in the UK anyone know please
Is there and alternative product out there
If the software does not work i we compelled to continue paying
You may tell i am a bit cross i only up graded to Yosemite because adobe said in the google search that it was fully working i don't count the loss of the map module as fully working or wasting my time on clean installs just to be left with the same issue
To be clear i am not trying to be disrespectful here and am grateful for the help, i bought in with Apple about 2 years ago and switched all my tech over i have ran LR from vs 3 and CS from version 3 though my skill in CS6 is poor and hence my concern for LR. I only bought into CC as for the money it was close to getting LR updates
So come on Adobe i am 61 and getting older by the day please supply what i am paying for
Just wanted to say i thought this was the official forum i have no problem in giving feedback my question is does that mean no one from adobe reads these issue
This forum is a user-to-user forum, where it's primarily users talking to each other and helping each other out. Based on past experience, Adobe does read at least some of the messages here and infrequently posts here. But mainly you're talking to other users (which is the main way that users get technical support these days).
The official Adobe feedback forum is where Adobe has said they want to receive bugs, feature requests, and other feedback intended for their eyes. They read more of the messages posted there and contribute more frequently. (Though they don't respond to most of the posts there.)
The difference between these two forums can get a fair bit blurry, since many people post here what eventually become identified as "bugs", and many people post in the official feedback forum what they think are "bugs" (behavior not intended by Adobe) but turn out to be misunderstandings or lack of understanding. And Adobe sure hasn't tried to help users understand the differences between the two forums.
Thats a great way of understanding the difference, in an ironic way it makes me more annoyed at Adobe, i have never Beta trialled software as i do not have enough software skill to do so. I can build my own PC and do clean install in Windows or Install in iMac. Had i read that a problem of functionality had been present in the Yosemite / Lightroom combination i would have stayed with Maverick until the 2 Global giants had sorted it out. Instead you check on line and its claimed that the programs play well together when Adobe have know for at least 3 months that its not the case.
I am also experiencing map problems after upgrading to OS X 10.10 - maps failing to load, missing tiles, very slow response in map module. Similar faults occur on my Mac Pro and MacBook Pro.
I used the map module regularly with a large catalog in OS X 10.9 without any of these symptoms.
Thanks for posting i wonder if you get a second if you could register your interest in this Adobe area
It seems as if at least Adobe at one point looked in and every extra licence payer who complains may mean we get sorted, hopefully sometime soon
Very disappointed Adobe have known for 3 months and have us updating softwre so that it does not work
