I at times need to check an address before I go and the first choice and the handy of one is Google Maps. But it usually does not suggest the most convenient and closest way. So it's good to look at Google Maps but you, as the driver are the only one who finds the best way.
I wanted to go to 4th St., NE yesterday and the way Google Maps showed me would have taken at least 10 to 15 min. longer if I had took it.
After all GPS is the best and easiest.
