I am also a heavy user of Google Maps (on Android)... but like AC and Bob it is only a rough guide. Common sense and local knowledge still prevail.

We stopped at Albion, NY today, which looked great on the guides... but we found nearest grocery store still open was a Walmart out of walking distance. Ick.

So we moved onto Hollie, NY, which according to Bob had a Jubilee grocery store, according to Google it was a Save a Lot. Google was right, but we ended up doing most of our shopping at a fresh produce shop not listed in any guide we learned about from the lift bridge operator.
