Paper maps crumpling in face of electronic onslaught Michael Cabanatuan, Chronicle Staff Writer Friday, October 12, 2007 These days, when it's time to hit the road, drivers are more likely to let a computer or GPS unit plot their journey than to pull out a paper road map. read on . . .

"Unlike disco, we find older signs are not making a comeback," he said.
  6. "THE road map today is mostly virtual — an electronic image on a screen, at home or in the car, provided by Mapquest or a built-in satellite navigation system. Setting out on a long journey, I half expect to see the marker pins of a Google map rearing above the highway like giant hat pins, shadowing the pavement ahead."
