"The only one to use"
Fantastic capability. Too bad the government restricts the closeup use to only public roads & areas. That is why one can not get closer to some signage, buildings & other properties. But what it does is fantastic. It saves alot of time when traveling to new areas & towns to find where to go, by what the area looks like. Most of the time, Google Maps will provide a overhead view of that area.
The on-the-ground camera work needs to be reviewed by someone prior to being used by the map application. Most of those problems could be spotted & corrected thru a review. This would also reduce the number of complaints.
