    Does anyone know of a website that has free maps to veiw? I am looking for one that shows lower canada/and all of the US. When some people on here say where they live I get puzzled because I have no clue where that city/state is. Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Give MapQuest a try. Type the location you want into the "Get Map" box and VOILA! there it is.

    I tried both of those sites, and they're good, but confusing at times... I will try yahoo maps later. Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Mapquest zooms way in when you give it just a city and state to work with. You usually can't tell where that city is in relation to other parts of the state. But if you click on the pick list just below the map, you can change the level of detail. Change it to something like 100 miles per inch and the map will zoom way out, giving you a much better idea of where the city really is. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
