    neilcreek, i gotta agree with u there, i live in north victoria and quality is very nice and hi-res i think that may have to do with the fact of the airport and there for the whole north has been done for hi-res but i am sure the day will come that all citys in the world will be hi-res

    Default Quito, Ecuador

    Unfortunatly, Quito Ecuador is NOT completely in high resolution...
    A low-resolutional stripe straight through the middle of the city is very upsetting for me, as I have family living in Ecuador and have been to quito myself a couple of times.

    Most of the updated cities are in low res.
    I hope that they will update Dubai.

    Default major update?

    As long as Cologne/Germany is not in hi-res it's not a major update ;-)
