Google Maps Outdone

Tru dat. Double tru.

Here’s a hat tip to–surprise surprise–Microsoft for its new Windows Live Local preview. Microsoft’s “immersive city navigation” features not only the map+satellite image system of Google Maps, but integrates it with a car’s-eye view from the ground level, which changes as you move around the city. A great aid for those if us who still get lost even with multiple Google Maps and Mapquest printouts occupying our passenger’s seat.

The preview only features Seattle and San Francisco at the moment. Here’s hoping they add more cities–fast.
