Google maps are fun to use because of the variety of views available. With the edit facility, all the maps should be correct in the course of time, as there are some errors in the maps currently. The country road on which I live is shown as a through road when it is in reality a no through road, an error which caused a visitor from the city to experience a much longer trip than he had planned. I like the street view, the satellite view, and the save and send facilities.
I plan to investigate the locations of places in the US to which I am travelling in the holidays so I'll have more prior knowledge of the destinations.
