Some suggestions for Google Maps

1. Put a travel time estimate at each step in the directions.
2. When a user zooms in, the state names should appear on the state borders, regardless of where the user is looking on the map.
3. Have a "Slide Show" option for driving directions that recenters the map every second or so, sequentially for each step of the directions.
4. Allow the user to enable informational popups that appear when they mouse over points of interest on the map.
5. Allow the user to enable icons on the map showing points of interest or services (fast food, gas stations, etc.).
