Maybe I’m just missing this option.
I usually use Google Maps and Mapquest to get driving directions. I’m pretty much a minimalist, so I’m perfectly happy with directions like “280 south, 85 west, 17 south, 1 north, left on Laurel,” and I use the Zip code as my starting point if I’m starting out here in SF I realize I’m in the minority, so I don’t the extra stuff on Mapquest.
However, I would really like to be able to trim off what are usually the first 5-10 steps of the directions. To get from my house to Oakland, Google gives me 8 steps before I’m on the Bay Bridge, Mapquest gives me 8. I know how to get to the Bay Bridge, thankyouverymuch. I’d really like to be able to make a few clicks and have the printout omit those steps.
Making the starting point “San Francisco” doesn’t help; it just assumes some random intersection, and making the starting point a block from the onramp is a PITA and still wastes a few lines.
Anyone know of a site that does this?
