I wanted to just compare these three services (Google Maps, Yahoo India Maps and Live Maps India). In my case I tried to get driving directions for journey between Hyderabad to Bangalore (the two major IT cities of India, of course).

The results:All the three services showed a similar distance (Google-566 Km, Yahoo-572 Km, Live Maps-572 Km).All three were also similar in terms of number of turning points or intermediate stations –Google –38, Yahoo- 35, Live Maps-34 ).

But they varied considerably in terms of time of travel.Google showed about 9 hours 19 minutes , Yahoo -12 hrs 24 mins and Live Maps India-10 hr 51 min.
