Classy use of maps

Every man and his dog has a map mash-up these days.

But there are few examples where the overall design of the page is taken into consideration.

So a thumbs up to Mr & Mrs Smith, which announced this week it has developed a route planning tool with Microsoft.

It's a decent enough piece of functionality but the way it fits in with the page is so much better than countless other mapping tools.

Doesn't look like a bad application. I'll stick to the old ask a taxi driver approach though.

Hi Kevin
thanks for posting about this application.
One bit that took us a long time to get right is the 'avoid motorways' function. It allows you to plot your route A-B without driving on a motorway.
This function is also the reason why we chose Microsft over Google for this app.
