Google Maps: What ever happened to MapQuest?

By now, Google Maps is the first map/directions website you go to. But lets take a moment to recall its predecessor. Following that, lets talk about why Google Maps is so much better.

…you know what is even better than Google Maps vs MapQuest? Knowing you are completely wrong about the topic. So before writing this post I should have checked out MapQuest, as I have not used it in years. Well, it turns out MapQuest has stepped it up. I just went to check out their website and, lo and behold, they have updated it to a carbon copy of Google Maps.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I believe – wholeheartedly – that imitation is the biggest form of flattery. That being said, MapQuest’s imitating Google Maps and doing away with their older but tried and true mapping engine means that Google is the best. This is a no brainer. The comparison is on par with the old Domino’s pizza vs. the new.

Just in case you didnt believe me, check out these screen shots:

…and here is your proof, in the time it took me to load the Google Map of the U.S., MapQuest only got this far


Google Maps, say hello to the full United States

…ok, minus Hawaii but that’s due to use error, its there though.
