I usually rely on MapQuest to locate addresses or get driving directions. I decided to try GoogleMaps.
I now have a whole new view (literally) on how to get from here to there! First a tried local road information and took a look at my home. Although the picture is over a year old, yep, it’s my place! Then, I tried a long distance trip. Since my husband is a contractor for the military and currently working for a helicopter group in Alabama, I asked for a route from here to there. It was very, very interesting when compared with what MapQuest gave me. First of all, there was some highway on the recommended route, but a good portion was on secondary roads. The most interesting part of it, though, was the ability to actually get a picture of the intersections and the roads. Wow! Now I know what all those camera’s are doing out there!
GoogleMaps is way more fun than MapQuest. You get all the same benefits as you can from MapQuest and a few more! I’ll definitely use it and continue to compare it with MapQuest to see who gives me better information the next time I plan any kind of trip!
