Yahoo Maps is one of the most popular mapping services available, and features several handy tools for figuring out how to get from place to place. Like other mapping services, there's a driving directions tool that gives you a turn-by-turn guide. Users can also click a "reverse" button that will reverse the directions, which can be very helpful with tricky one-way streets and confusing freeway on- and off-ramps.
In addition to driving directions, users can also sort and search using business listings and see their locations right on the map. Yahoo also provides its Maps users with live traffic data that shows them where accidents, slowdowns, and expected road work is going on, just in case they're trying to plan the best route.
