premium maps for GC.com in Website Posted April 18, 2015 Before you switch back, maybe give the non-Google maps a try. They're surprisingly good. I've been using them by choice for ages now. They're not very good for satellite imagery, unless I'm missing something. You are correct. The satellite imagery options are OLD. Looking at my neighborhood they appear to be at least 5 years old. Google's imagery (in my location, anyhow) is 2 years old.
