I have been playing around with Google Maps lately and have come across a few scripts I had from a few months back… This is a bit of fun!
[Click Here to try out Google Maps animated directions]
What this does is you input a start location and an end destination in the input boxes, press the start button and watch the journey animated with a small van icon.
It will display your current speed, mph, road names & routes as it plods along call it “sat nav” on the cheap… 🙂
I have a preset journey leaving from Patrick’s St, Cork, Ireland going to The Square, Blarney, Cork, Ireland but you can change the start and finish locations to your own liking.
What’s also interesting about this map is it will take you across channels e.g. I put Rosslare as start and Swansea as finish and it took me across the proper channel route and then continued on the roads in the UK!
I’d imagine it will take you to anywhere that Google Maps can find….. [Click Here to try it out]
