Too tedious? I think it is brilliant! One of the hardest things to imagine for me is the geography behind stories, and this really takes care of that. And if I ever go to the UK, I may actually know which way is up a little more than before.

Would be nice if it could incorporate zoom a little more. The tube ride in chapter four is quite tedious at street-level.

How long until somebody does a "Carmen Sandiego" game using Google maps?
Or is there one already?
Hang on, I'll google it.
