How Did You Live Without Google Maps?

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Last fall LAist took a road trip around the country. Our mother called each night to make sure we were all right. We'd say, "we've got EVDO, WiFi, cell phones, Google Maps, ATM cards, it'd be almost impossible for us to not find exactly what we want for the lowest prices possible."

And that was from the road.

Here in the lap of luxury of LA, with DSL and LAist as your homepage, Lord knows you'll never get lost here. And if you're not using the Google Map Mashups you're totally missing out.

Los Angeles Google Maps Mashup has links to 53 different mashups from where every Starbucks is to every gay bar, every wi-fi hotspot, every gas station (including its current prices), and of course traffic.
