Abstract                : I have used 2 main features:
                          
                          1. tripquest
                          Specify origin & destination of any trip within N. America.
                          The software will return detailed directions and maps for 
                          the trip. Includes details such as type of roads, tolls, 
                          speed limits, 
                          expected time for journey, etc.
                          
                          2. mapquest
                          interactively select maps for anywhere in the world:
                          pan, scan in, scan out, display icons for several useful
                          locations - e.g airports, hotels, businesses, points of 
                          interest, ...
                          
                          Very 
                          good down to street level in USA.
                          Can easily find location of a specified hotel, or business,
                          for instance.
                          
                          In most other countries, OK to city level & major highways.
                          Some detail in some major cities.
                          e.g.  Brisbane locale showed a 
                          few nearby towns such as

                          Some street level detail for downtown, only.
