[View Larger Map]
When we arrived in Buenos Aires two years ago, I was utterly dismayed to find that Argentina was a complete blank on [maps.google.com] No MORE! Woo Hoo!!!! I was sure when I heard that Google was opening up an office here that they would get their maps up and running immediately. I was wrong. I tried using [other online maps], and of course, the [GuiaT pocket guide] (flash site w/ music) is invaluable when you're outside, but none of these compare to the ease of use of google's maps. The city government has [an "interactive" map], but it's slow and many times was offline or "unavailable". [OpenStreetMap] just doesn't have everything and [Como Viajo] is about as good as the [Bay Area's Trip Planner], which isn't saying much, but it is helpful. It will take me a bit to get used to using maps.google.com again, but boy am I a happy camper!
