The new map allows you to more easily find your way, especially from locations outside Dublin (I’m guilty of having been a little Dublin-centric on the old map). New bus route information is included and there are map coordinates that you can plug in your GPS or smart phone.
What an age we live in.
As it turns out, this is pretty timely. For some reason, Bing Maps has recently changed and is now mislabelling roads at my location. I’ve no idea why this might be; they used to be fine. Open Street Map and Google Maps are still correct, by the way. Apple Maps on the iPhone is fine too.
If you’re using Bing , please be careful. My address is Rossberry Avenue but, at the time of writing, that road is displayed on the map as Rossberry Park.
If you want to do the sat-nav thing, the coordinates are below. Different devices require different formats (DMS or DD) so both are listed.
Degrees, Minutes, Seconds (DMS):
- Latitude 53 20 21 (North)
- Longitude -6 26 14 (West)
Decimal Degrees (DD):
- 53.339114, -6.437398
Or just use address, 54 Rossberry Avenue, Lucan. Do remember to drop me a line to sort an appointment first, though.
