Design and Google Maps
Mike Settele

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Mike! I have always been irked by the instructions “In 1000 feet, turn right…” — who thinks like that?

Your comment about two left turns vs. one is also poignant because I find myself having this same conversation with my mom all the time.

I will share your post with the Maps team. These are great observations about how people see the world vs. how computers are programmed.
