Love the Megaflyover and NG layers! Great improvement.
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
woopz i wrote north Victoria, meaning to write the north of melborurne around tullamarine
go back to melbourne and check it out. it's been updated.
And Darwin is now high res too!
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.
I can now see my house now thanks to the mayflower update!
Most of the updated cities are in low res.
I hope that they will update Dubai.
As long as Cologne/Germany is not in hi-res it's not a major update ;-)
FINALLY Caracas, venezuela is in hi-res
but one part of Caracas (where the rich people lives, stills in very low resolution"
San Marino has new imagery too
The entire country of San Marino has new hi res imagery too.
Excelent! But I only can see the Megaflyovers from Africa. What about the other continents?
Brasil is still too far off the satelite??
Thought, at least to find the capitals of states easy, but..........
hope there will be some kosovoupdates soon. only belgrade,...
