This corner of Surrey needs shifting as well.

Can we formally ask Waze for the re-instatement of the more reliable Bing aerials? They won't be (allowed to) agree of course, but it would make the point.

Hi,

Normal to whom? Challenger Tank drivers? Add the possible inaccuracy of GPS to 20 meters (or more) and your start accuracy is 30 meters. Not so good when looking for/navigation to a premises or house.

Hi,

There was, if I remember, somewhere you could report misaligned aerial imagery, whether misaligned to neighbouring images or whether in the wrong position.
Need that in the wiki as I can't see it there either.

I noticed it around 7:30 this morning, found this thread, saw your picture of Westminster Bridge so thought just to double check I would find the same image, I normally use Chrome so think that is where I captured it.

Just tried in Chrome and Explorer 10 and got the old and new images so I don't know what is going on :?

Is one of them using an old cache thingy .. it's all a bit too technical for me :lol:

It also looks like they have updated some of the aerials, if you compare this image to the one iainhouse uploaded you will see that that the buses are different and that Googles "road" now runs down the centre of the bridge.

Googles editors are going to have to come back and correct their roads now... :lol:

It looks like the London aerials may have been fixed at last, I have checked various places mainly north, west and central London and they now much better aligned so be careful if you are using Aerial Auto Shifter.
