How to allow internet mapping sites through a webfilter.

I am using Watchguard webfilter to restrict websites to users.  Users are only allowed to go to sites in the execption list.  One site I want to allow through is google maps or mapquest or yahoo maps.  I have an exception for mapquest ** which should allow everything with the url to come through.  Problem is the map part does not show.  Same thing happens with Google and yahoo.  Anyone know how to find out where the maps are pulled from so I can put it in the exception list?

    I was watching the traffic monitor in the Firebox system manager and it didnt show my IP trying to go to a blocked site.  I had to turn on the logging for it.  Thanks for the reminder.  
    Ok that worked good. Thanks,
