I've been avoiding this thread because I was thinking what Brian just said.  
Mapping software is like news coverage; if you were there, you know they got 
it wrong.

Every site I've checked has me living in my neighbor's house.  Likewise, my 
workplace is shown a block away.

GPS won't tell you the lights a poorly timed on one route and good on another.  
They won't tell you they've been putting new sidewalks in, and though the 
road is technically open, you want to avoid it.

I may be betraying my masculinity, but I have no problem asking directions.  
Human beings are usually great with telling you this useful stuff.

Sorry for the rant, but as much as I like technology, I hate solutions in 
search of problems.

I'll go away now.
