The dancer is a girl with short pink hair. She is wearing a pink vest with a blue plaid crop top, a blue skirt, blue tights, and dark blue heels. During the chorus, her skin turns black, her vest turns yellow, her tight turn black/disappear and her skirt becomes close to sliver.
The background is pink with other warm colors. At some points, it zooms in revealing that red and yellow pixels are being generated inside the various patterns. Circular patterns are generated when the dancer does a certain move. At some parts lines of longitude and latitude can be seen. The entire background appears to be a blurred out map. During the chorus the pink background turns dark purple and the patterns turn into dark lights that flash in different patterns. When "So I'm following the map that leads to you" is sung, grid lines are formed. The background during the bridge is similar to the background during the verses, but a map can clearly be seen.
The Classic routine has 3 Gold Moves: Gold Moves 1 and 2: Clap twice with your arms in front of your face. Gold Move 3: Push your left arm outwards and pull your right arm toward you, then repeat in the opposite direction.

The Mashup has 2 Gold Moves, both of which are the same: Both Gold Moves: Put your right hand on your left shoulder. (California Gurls)
This is the second song by Maroon 5 in the series.
The verses and bridge's background resemble actual maps (the song's namesake).
In the Mashup, Party Rock Anthem is not in the middle of the screen but at the side, some pictograms for Venus do not appear (only on Xbox 360 and Xbox One), and I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ suddenly transitions in while Party Rock Anthem immediately just disappears without the fade-out.
Diegho San and Dina appear in the Community Remix for this song.
The dance is seen in the music video of MAX and Alyson Stoner's cover of the song.
During the last instance of the line "So I’m following the map that leads to you", the coach appears to do an ad lib where she either bops her own head or makes bunny ears while bringing her arms down. The pictograms are the same as when she does the dance move without the additional hand gesture and none of the game versions requires the player to do the hand gesture for a perfect score.
During the chorus, the dancer's glove constantly glitches from orange to red.
In the game files, the Classic half coach is named mad_coach_1, while the half coach for the Mashup is regularly named as mapsmu_coach_1.
The Mashup can be affected by a glitch: once the routine starts, it freezes and the chroma key of What You Waiting For? is shown. After few seconds, a half video of the same coach appears with the gameplay of I Love It.
