My buddy Cyrus plotted a point in the middle of Port Philip Bay, and asked Google Maps to give directions from there to a location in St Kilda… Turns out Google Maps knows about the ferry!

    My friend works for a GPS company, he says they define ferries as roads with (eg) 40km speed limits, and call the roads “Ferry’s”.

    Tricky!

    I like Google Maps but I find Rand McNally delivers better directions across the board…
