With my daughter competing in a regional figure skating competition, I wanted to make sure I know the route to the ice arena, one I had been to just once before. I found Google remarkably clueless.
Attempt 1: My first try was with Google Maps, to show me the route. When I entered my home address and "Twin Rinks, Chilliwack, BC", Google Maps claimed it didn't know what I meant by "Twin Rinks":
We could not understand the location "Twin Rinks, Chilliwack, BC"
Attempt 2: Get the street address, I thought. I copy and pasted "Twin Rinks, Chilliwack, BC" into the main Google search engine. It returned the following Local Result:
Twin Rinks Ice Arena - 1.8 km NW - 8550 Young, Chilliwack, BC, Canada
I entered the street address into Google Maps, but it routed me north of the #1 freeway, when I knew the rinks were south of the freeway.
Attempt 3: I returned to the results from the search engine. The next item was "City of Chilliwack - Twin Rinks Schedule - Skate Schedule ...", which I clicked to find the "5745 Tyson Rd" address on this Chilliwack Web page.
When I told my wife, she replied, "I think I have the address in my purse."
This was poor performance by Google.
