Google, you really need to look into this problem--or at least not run that ad anymore...

@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.

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

pfft perfect use of the ad
it makes you waste the paper so you feel worse and even more obligated to download google maps on your phone

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.

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.

@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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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*

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