Google now does mapping like mapquest does. Google Maps is a little different then mapquest's though, ( I'm not sure it's better yet ) it is super easy to use ofcourse and it also has built in local stuff. Google Local is new as well and it can find local stuff like in the yellow pages except that it does it better of course. So Google Maps uses it to pinpoint stuff on the map. Works pretty good. I searched for movie and it brought up most of the theaters in the area (not all of them movie theaters). Both of these are still in beta version right now so expect them to get even better. I never would have thought that Google would be competing with mapquest.
