Google Maps Adds Printable Street Views & Avoid Tolls

Google Maps Guide Brian announced in a Google Groups thread two minor but important features Google has added to the new, blue Google Maps.

  1. Printable Street Views were added to the new Google Maps. Brian said Google received "a lot of feedback that users wanted a way to take Street View images on the road." Brian said, "now you can." All you need to do is when viewing a Street View image, just click on the "Print" icon.
  2. Avoid Tolls was added to the "avoid highways" option. You can now select "avoid tolls" and/or "avoid highways" at the top left of the Google Maps interface, after searching for directions. So if you are sick of paying for tolls and high gas prices, at least you can avoid paying the tolls.

Like I said before, there are many people excited about the new Google Maps features and design, but there are many people unhappy with the changes. I guess it is true what they say, you can't please them all.
