I'm pretty map-aware and a bit of a pre-planner, but even my usual usage is to choose a destination and have Google give me directions. (Then maybe I'll tweak it or whatever.) Same with my 65-year-old dad who still buys a folding paper street map for each new city he visits. Does anyone still visually plan a route on Google Maps by just looking at the road markings?

No, because it is a pain to do, not because I would not want to. Rarely because it wants me to take a closed road. More often because I would like to travel through some part of a land and am not interested in the most efficient way of reaching my final destination.
