    Re: Googlemaps

    Many of the inaccuracies on G Maps are terrible, and while Google is open to edit submissions, I've never received any response or seen any edits. Having said that, it's still a pretty awesome tool.

    The problem is too big. It is taking more than hour to fix a single location.

    Re: Googlemaps

    I've submitted almost a dozen recommended edits to Google maps and I've still heard or seen nothing in over two months. You're right though, it's huge.

    Re: Googlemaps

    I submitted a couple of changes.
    One was particularly frustrating. Our address appeared on Maps to be about one half mile to the East at a major intersection. We can see that intersection from our front porch, across the fields. When we order pizza or such stuff, or called a tow truck for service, they would get to that intersection and eventually call us because they could not find us.

    After two attempts to get Google to correct it, they did. We now get our Pizza while it is hot.

    Re: Googlemaps

    Never had a problem with searching google maps. Or the maps app on my phone.
    Look up Darriman Victoria. If you cant find it then youve got problems because everypne else can.

    What i have a problem with as far as google maps /google earth is concerned is when you look for strategic military places around the globe they are blanked out......ours arent. I find that very disconcerting.

    Re: Googlemaps

    My problem is trying to drop the yellow chap onto roads the Google Car hasn't driven down. In Egypt, for example, and China. Very annoying. On the other hand I can virtually travel round all the small villages and large estates outside Medellin in Columbia, something I have yet to try on the ground.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    They probably have a way of checking the origin point of the requester. I can see many such places in the States, but not in other countries.
