Google Maps Has Gone Insane
Remember way back when Mapquest used to be the go-to directions site? That is until it started sending drivers in circles and down dead ends... Thank goodness there was google maps. Now, unfortunately it seems like google maps is breaking down. I give you the example above where google maps seemed to think a spiral is a better way to get to point B rather than a straight line.
I can't count the numbers of times that google maps sent me driving aimlessly in the wrong direction. Luckily, it happened enough to realize the problem isn't me, it's google maps. Now I rely on my road maps in my car and use google maps just to get a drive time estimate. Is there another site out there that works for directions or should I just break down and get a gps gizmo?
