7 great new US Google Maps mashups!

TaxiWiz: Google Maps Tool to calculate cab fare! (now for 6 US cities!)

Mike DeGraw-Bertsch has expanded his New York City Cab fare tool to include 5 new US cities. They are: Boston, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Toronto is also the first Canadian city added. Select two points and Taxiwiz helps to estimate the cab fare for that journey. There are also mobile versions for each city so you can use this app on your mobile device (this doesn't use Google Maps).
