    Link: Why You So Environmentally Bad, Google Maps? - Google, you really need to look into this problem--or at least not run that ad anymore...

    If they didn`t print it in landscape orientation, it probably would have been fine.

    no, people just need to learn that there is a print preview and that you CAN CHOOSE WHICH PAGES YOU WANT. seriously, all the options ar ein that dialog where you just click ok without even looking. dont blame google for something you can fix if you care *Rage*

    or - you could click the button on the gmaps page that says "print" and then it formats it for printing instead of screen. Was that so hard?

    Either way, it`s not Google`s fault. Blame the browser. Blame the user.

    And what`s up with the page numbers? 2 of 3. 1 of 3(or 1?). Is there yet a third page?

    I know quite a few people that refuse to buy a GPS because they find the voices annoying on them...and then they`re always the ones that are constantly late to wherever they`re going because they followed Google Maps.

    i don`t get why this is funny, they are saying that downloading the app to your phone is a greener alternative to printing the maps off.

    @kerry - it`s the irony of an ad telling you to save paper appearing on its own on a second sheet. If not for the ad, one sheet would have been saved.

    print range:
    pages from 1 to 1

    easily remedied.

    @swash
    its not irony, its stupid. it could be irony if it was a print ad, but it is not. its an online ad.

    If he had printed in portrait like a normal person, it would have been 1 page. Or, he could have made the printer print only page 1 of 2. Basically, a fail all around.

    @WeePee - It`s still an ad in favour of saving paper that in itself caused paper to be wasted. Therefore ironic.

    @WeePee: if you look closely, the "ad" is page 1
    The map is page 2
    Not shown: page 3 (probably the written instructions to get from A to B).

    So yes if you previewed and just printed the map page & the written instructions, you`d save paper in theory, but 99% of folks hit "print" and that`s it.
