Maps Capsule

    Is there a way on the maps capsule to show a region of the US - the states of Illinois and Wisconsin?

    It keeps asking for a location - a specific location.  I wanted to zoom out and show both Illinois and Wisconsin.

      Sorry this is not an answer, but I would like to know this too. I write about all sorts of different areas, each with different boundaries. I would also like to be able to mark routes.

    It seems pretty simple to me.  Maybe I don't understand the questions.  Go to the map, for location type in Chicago or Lansing.  Choose map type, sattlelite, map, or hybrid.  Choose go to this location.  Click on the map and drag it to center the portion of the map you  want to view.  Use the + or - navigation tools to zoom in  or out.   You will find that you can see a map of the region.

    I just typed in "Queensland" as the state in my map capsule and it showed the state. Didn't seem to be a problem for me...

    Try again maybe?
