I'm not Australian but I would still award Google Maps to Oz, on the basis that the environment that Lars found himself in played a major contribution to the invention.

If you get lost in Palo Alto, it's not too bad: keep driving until you hit the water (less than a day either way). But you really, really don't want to take a wrong turn in Australia. "Hoping you'll hit Alice Springs" is not a strategy.
