Google maps are routable. But the road/route data appears to be from MapIT that's much less updated than MFM. They're still not using road data from their own GMM (http://mapmaker.google.com).

They also have Transit (Komuter, LRT and buses) information. But Monorail info is not yet actually there, http://t.co/JlvgHF2J . The buses info are not yet complete.

Many thanks for the valuable info sabre23t. You are right; MFM has a very much updated map :D

Google uses a phenomenon, known as “crowdsourcing” ... The question is which phone OS platform are they extracting the data from :-'

As extracted from "Google Official Blog"

Quote:
If you use Google Maps for mobile with GPS enabled on your phone, that's exactly what you can do. When you choose to enable Google Maps with My Location, your phone sends anonymous bits of data back to Google describing how fast you're moving. When we combine your speed with the speed of other phones on the road, across thousands of phones moving around a city at any given time, we can get a pretty good picture of live traffic conditions. We continuously combine this data and send it back to you for free in the Google Maps traffic layers. It takes almost zero effort on your part — just turn on Google Maps for mobile before starting your car — and the more people that participate, the better the resulting traffic reports get for everybody.

Are they (Google) operating on the same principle as Waze, as far as live traffic is concerned?

My guess, google is auto, waze is manual. :)
