New Google Map Features Worth Mentioning

July 14, 2007

I’m sure most of you know this by now (I don’t claim to be on top of NEW news…, but anyway). There are some new Google Maps features that I just found out about tonight when my wife asked me directions to look up.

First off, you can tell Google Maps what alternate routes to take by dragging the blue line on the map to different roads. It’s pretty sweet.

Also, you can now avoid highways on directions. This may have been around for awhile, but I’m not sure. So all you people who are scared to drive on highways (ahem, my wife) now have directions that avoid them.

Pretty cool!
