Google Maps

I've always relied on Yahoo and/or MSN maps for directions... We drove to NYC about once or twice a year and the average time of our travel is 11-14 hours that includes bathroom/food/gas stops and we would always missed one or two exits because of the numerous turns, tolls and passing through small towns.

Recently, I discovered Google Maps. We have to rely on hubby's blackberry phone to give us direction since we had problem with hubby's laptop and the GPS that comes with it. Google Maps gave us 9 hours of travelling time with 4 quick stops, a total of 537 miles! All major highways and only 3 tolls. Unbelievable!

Hi Junnie,
Yup, I know about Google Earth na, amazing talaga ang technology and scary.

Hi Cruise,

So after Google Maps, Google Earth, try Google Mars...at least kahit di tayo makapunta, makita lang natin ang Red Planet.

im using the same service here in france, im using mappy.com or viamichelin.fr, useful when we go out of vacation, and that online maps extends to the whole europe. ang nakakatuwa pa, it computes how much gasoline you pay, toll fee, and it indicates the location of radars (for those speedy vehicles hehe).. ok di ba. i've used the same service when we went vagabonding in the US. with all that, i dont think ill need a GPS hehe..

Hi Ann, Tani and Raquel!

Hi Junnie,
Mars nga ba talaga yan???

Hi Ghee,
Its not "blue" but "blackberry"... hehehe... super nga hitech na ng cellphone ngayon, hard to catch up.

Hi Analyse,
Ang galing naman service dyan, pati radar kasama... that's what google needs right now. hehehe...

this is really amazing! We are thinking about taking my son to N. Japan and drive around. W/ Google map, we can do it safely (I guess). Really thanks, Jo.
