Maps

I don't know about you guys, but I'm tired of getting crappy driving directions online. Yes Mapquest, this means you. Since relocating to a new city, I've had to rely on directions a lot more often than I used to. And I'm fine at following directions- I'd even say I'm kind of a star- unless of course those directions are faulty. Don't tell me to turn left if the only thing I'll be driving through is the side of that Wal-Mart. There's only so many times I want to be lost in the bowels of Los Angeles.

So I've been fooling around with Map24.com, a java-based program which is slightly clunky but has promise. I'm looking for something even better. Any recommendations?

Update- Somehow by asking for good map suggestions, I instigated a war in the comments section about whether or not L.A. is a good place to live. Don't you just love blogs?
