Google maps now has a feature that suggests places when you start typing them, like they have for normal searches. Its not always the most relevant results though, when looking for my apartment it suggested a place in Japan - so I tried it out.
Thats right, the "swim the atlantic" feature is gone from google maps but we have instead a "kayak the pacific ocean" option. I think its great that they suggest you take one stop on your way over the pond, in Hawaii. link
