Ep. 28 — Is Google Maps still offering me the best route?


I was curious to find out. Is upstart Mapbox just as good or better? Has Apple Maps improved sufficiently? What about the MapQuest which I haven’t explored in a while?

Fortunately, all of them offer their routing engines as APIs. So, it’s possible to build a comparison tool to visualize those routes on the same base map.

I brought all these 8 engines together and created SuperRoute.

Just enter your source and destination of your daily commute or weekend trips, you will be able to see the routes shown in different colors.

What have I learned en route 🚗 ?

Learning as a product owner & engineer:

Hope this helps when we can all travel again!

Happy coding!
