Hats off to Google Maps!Last Sunday, I went to greater Noida from my residence in New Delhi. I had to pick up someone from ITO, so I went to ITO first and from there I went to greater Noida. I used Google Maps to know the route. While coming back, I was to come directly back to my residence. Again, I used Google Maps to find out the best available route. This time Google Maps showed me a route which was around 42 Kms. I blindly followed the directions given by Google Maps. The journey was pleasant with no or minimal traffic. We were talking among ourselves and did not notice much about the places which were passing by. After around 35 minutes or so, I stopped my car on a traffic stoplight, the first stop since we started from sector 16c of greater Noida, and then we noticed that we were just 1 KM away from our home.
I was very pleasantly surprised that we had covered the 41 KMs (out of the 41 KMs, 12 KMs were in UP and the rest of 29 KMs in New Delhi) in 35 minutes without a need to stop at any traffic stoplight. Imagine driving a car in New Delhi for 29 KMs without any stoppage. It is a sort of wonder. It was made possible by Google Auntie (I fondly call the lady giving directions on Google maps as Google Auntie .
Thank you Google Maps for making driving easy and pleasant. I strongly recommend my fellow ISCians to use Google Maps while driving to save time and money/fuel. Have you ever had any such experience while using Google Maps? Please share your experiences.
