Google: not good at locating things

Google is useful for finding all sorts of information, to the extent "googling" has become a verb, but their mapping can be very hit-and-miss at times. Should you for example search for Berlin's Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, it will show you a little map of where it thinks it is - i.e. the Lietzenburger Straße. Which is way out; the church site at the top end of the Ku'damm on Breitscheidplatz.
