There has been a big debate over which is better when it comes to maps. Some say Google Maps while others live in Live Search. Google is trying to change that and take the number one spot with the 2.2 update. Moments after Microsoft released their Live Search update, Google followed suit and added cool new features like favorites, public transportation directions, and center point on the map.

The new 2.2 will give users the ability to track bus and train schedules. With these ridiculous gas prices google maps could be a great tool in our never ending battle to fight the pump.

I gave it a spin and have to admit the pages seem to scroll a lot better than they did in the previous maps. I also fell in love with the favorites. I automatically added my house, work and family members as favorites making it easier to search in certain areas.
