I stand before you all (well sit) dumbfounded.

A new feature on Google maps, allows you to input start and finish locations and get directions, travel time and distance. It also allows the route to be customised to ones whims.

Trying to stump it I entered my home address in North Canterbury and my mothers place in Tawa. Nope Google had that sussed including the Ferry trip and accessing the ferry drive on ramps.

These guys deserve their astronomical share price and MSoft has good reason to be very very worried.

And if anyone is ever driving from my place to my Mum’s here are directions.
