For some things Google Maps is better and for other things Google Earth is better. It depends on what you're trying to do. If you simply want to get driving directions from point A to point B then Google Maps is quick and easy. If you want to explore Mount Everest or the mountains on Mars then Google Earth is better to use. Google Earth is the heavy-weight application that you will tend to spend more time exploring and looking around, while Google Maps is streamlined to get quick answers.

It also depends on which device you're using. For an older cellphone, the Google Earth app may not exist but Google Maps is available from any web browser. You use one or the other depending on what makes sense. Likewise, if you want to print large high-resolution maps then Google Earth Pro best supports that need. Use either Google Maps or Google Earth with the option to switch from one to other as needed. Google Earth has a "View in Google Maps" menu option for just that.
