PC World has taken a stab at reviewing online mapping services and in-car navigation systems. It only reviews 4 services (Google Local, Live Local, Mapquest and Yahoo! Maps. Live Local comes out on top in their review (it ranked it “superior;” the others were simply “very good”). No word on why they picked just these four. In the in-car navigation systems department, Tom-Tom’s Go 300 came in first when compared to 4 other competitors. The reviews finish off with a short discussion on mapping and GPS software.

Though the entire set of reviews is 16 pages, all the reviews are short and to the point; it wouldn’t take long to read through them all.

Compare to Cartography’s own review of online mapping sites from last year.
