Google Maps provides the best driving, walking and public transit instructions this side of expensive GPS units. And the undisputed king of online mapping is constantly evolving — not only in the breadth and detail of its maps, but also in features and functionality.

Business pages are now packed with handy info, aggregate reviews and tips from locals and sites like Yelp. It’s easy to customize the Google Maps experience by adding your own reviews, “checking in” (a la Foursquare), marking your favorite places and sharing locations on various social networks.

Google has also streamlined the experience for easy searching while walking or driving. Pressing the inverse teardrop at the top of the page opens an interface of large icons that will help you to automatically find the best restaurants, bars, attractions, ATMs, gas stations or cafes in the vicinity.

If you’re still using MapQuest (really?) or even the iPhone’s proprietary map app (which, incidentally, uses Google’s map information), it’s time to make the switch.
