Maybe related question:

As a premium member, is there a way to change the default map type on the actual cache page from Open street map to Google maps? I know there is a link to open it in a new window, but it would be nice to see in right on the cache page.

On the cache page, no.  Unless GC Little Helper as described above handles that.

Reasoning: Google wants $$$ from websites that embed their maps, so Groundspeak invested $$ in creating and serving up their own derivative of OSM.  Unfortunately it's woefully out of date; it costs time and $ to run your own tile server, as I think they've found out.

Not GCLH but another Greasmonkey script may help. GC Street View. It shows a map + streetview if available.

It looks like this:

BTW, there a a lot of GM scripts that make life easier on GC B)
