Google Maps no longer "suck"

Google gets it wrong Over two years ago when Google Maps released their satellite maps feature and the rest of the world was ooooh'ing and aaaaaah'ing, I wrote a post saying Google Maps sucked because when I typed in my address, they couldn't pinpoint my exact location. Pshaw.

I was being facetious. I am a Google Maps fan-boy like everyone else - except of course when you ask for directions and its sends you to the wrong city. But that is a whole other blog post.

Today I found out that Google now lets users edit maps. The first thing I did was adjust where Google things my home is. Now when you type in my address - you get the exact point on the map.

I may be the only person in the world that cares that Google gets this right, but I must admit, it is a cool feature nonetheless.

At both my current and previous addresses, almost all mapping applications point at the wrong house. In one case, about half a block away. This was always annoying when having parties and such. I was very excited to hear about this new feature from Google.

This so called "feature" that allows users to edit maps is bogus. I edited something 4 times (once a month, 4 months in a row) and it STILL shows the wrong location. I did everything accurately, please do not question my aptitude, but do question google's.
