I’ve been trying to write up my Portland bike trip and include some Google Maps, but seem to have run into a bug in their code. If I map out directions from my house to Portland, selectively add some waypoints, and check the “Avoid Highways” button, I get something awful close to the route I took. If I click the “Link to this Page” button, I get two choices: a link to post, and a snippet of code that embeds a map into my HTML. The link works, but the HTML doesn’t – the HTML version doesn’t avoid highways. Check it out: here’s the link; and here’s the HTML version

Well, it is free, I suppose.
