Google maps is nothing short of remarkable.

Anybody remember mapquest?

Mapquest is & always was a big joke.
I was happy when I used my in browser google maps & found pegman there.
Now when will they put the compass in so one don't have to click the screen & drag it?

Very good. Now I must figure a way to install & power my desktop from my cars dashboard. I'll just attach my keyboard to the steering wheel with duct tape.
