Google Maps has new cool feature!!
Mood:  a-ok
Now Playing: Picture This (Blondie)
Topic: Internet fun things
So, went to check out the route for a trip between Northampton and Milton Keynes (was planning on going on the upcoming BSRLM conference) ... on google maps ... and discovered now you can move around the route to choose which roads you want to use it ... that is so great!! Because I always prefer the nice quiet scenic country roads rather than the dual-carriageways and most of those direction programmes never let you choose that, but now with this feature in google maps ... you can!! They really do know what people want ... I mean the ability to drag the map and see where you want to go rather than clicking arrows (as in other irritating programmes such as from the AA and RAC) is brilliant ... and the ability to do satellites look as well is great!! Especially with me who really want to see how confusing the highway interchange or roundabout is :D
