Played with it a few minutes.Google maps don't have anything to worry about for now.It is easy to use but not in the league of Google maps.

Google killer?

I think not from my short test run. However, the sat. images appear sharper at lower elevations. I didn't find any send or marker tools. Google Earth it's not. I don't use Google maps except to send locations from Google Earth to my GPS.

I will check out the route planner next.
