It just depends on what level of zoom you use!

Yeah, the level on Ask is almost spooky. For grins I looked at Vegas, figuring it would be a popular place. It's gets so close you can almost count how many beach chairs are being used at the pools behind the Bellagio! Scroll over to the strip and you can literally count the individual cars waiting to turn left into Paris (and tell what colors they are) Pretty amazing stuff.

ask also lets you add more than one waypoint to the map.

not that anyone HERE might be interested in THAT capability.
