Mapquest sucks!!

I've been using that site for several years to find addresses. So they recently changed it and now it doesn't work. Does anybody have a better site than Mapquest?

I wouldn't recommend another site. On a recent trip, I used mapquest to print directions and my wife chose some other site. The "other" site sent me over 200 miles further than mapquest to reach the same destination.

I understand some sites will vary slightly, but a 20% disparity is inexcusable.

map quest has gone downhill in the last few years.

Really like maps.google.com between the map/sattelite view.....pretty nice. Google Earth Pro is nice desktop app too.

Find a map.

I use this for my travels and it is far more accurate than Mapquest. I haven't used that site in years.

I ran into that trying to get directions to Kearney, NE from KC a few years ago.

For long trips I tend to use expedia/mapquest/google/yahoo to see which one works out better. I know they gave me a lot of options for my drive to and from San Diego a few years back.

Yes, because it's not enough to let Google know what you're researching, you should also let them know where you're going to be.

PS, Google maps has little issues like listing Taiwan as part of China.

I went to this site but couldn't find anyhing that remotely resembles "Find a map". Map.googe.com just wants to rent me a car or book a flight. I'm trying to get a map to: 14817 North 58th East Ave., Collinsville, Ok 74021. Can anybody find that?

It's nothing more than

A money making site anymore. It went from providing a good service to being more worried about it's ad revunue and how much money it can make.

It had my mothers address off by a mile and it was changed back in 93. So they are 13 years behind.

Try it again, and up on the top bar click on 'Maps' then on the new page 'Find a map' is right in the middle of the page.

Or, try this: http://www.expedia.com/pub/agent.dll?qscr=mmfn

If the government wants to know where I am, they'd be better off checking my credit card records and cellphone location than asking google which map I looked up. Now, if google is giving the government a list of what I search for online, that's a different issue.
