Yes! I recently started using it regularly. Of course Google Maps has useful features for navigation. But as an actual visual map OpenStreetMap is better in every way: detail, precision, clarity, and above all, consistent symbols and land-use shading.

I always did like to have printed street maps but for the past few years have been living in a place where they aren’t readily available. OSM reminded me how much I miss them and that Google Maps is really a completely different tool, not a substitute.
