It can figure out how to get from anywhere to anywhere!
Sadly, I can't figure out how to get it to tell you to swim across the Pacific.
I wish I could figure out how to get it to tell me to swim across the Pacific. :-) It can't give you directions on how to get anywhere in China, South Korea or Japan. It can for Canberra, Australia, but it won't tell you to swim the Pacific even if you start in Honolulu.
Yeah, that is annoying. There should be a few more links than that. :-(
I don't know. It doesn't take ferries into account either, which is similarly disappointing. In order to use it to get routes to the Olympic Penninsula, for example, I have to find the route from various convenient ferry terminals and compare them to the route from my house to see how much time they save.
I should check them out. I really despise their UIs though.
And, for a year or two after Google maps came out, their horrible UIs were excusable as "Well, we didn't think to do it that way." but now they're just a joke.
Oh, I just looked. Mapquest has recently gotten a bunch better. Interesting. Well, now that they're on par, maybe it'll be worth it to use them if they do some things better.
