Doh, can it be? Yahoo! Maps has features I was looking for that Google doesn't. The new Yahoo! Maps has a drag feature that looks interestingly similar to Google's. Although it's not as clean and fast and elegant, it wins in area of functionality for a broad spectrum of users. Ah, the endless tug-of-war between Yahoo! and Google.

What I was looking for was a good map API, and what I didn't expect to find was the new multi-stop direction finder, and what I forgot it had was the easy put-it-together URLs to get what you want. It also has real time traffic info, and browse for local businesses and things.

More investigating...
