Maybe when China gets its own infrastructure (or did that plan stop?), the aerials can be updated. I'm surprised Waze is allowing China users to do mapping as doesn't the government officially own all maps and Waze's map could be seen as illegal? That's what we've heard in the past.

Most small cities of China in Bing map can't see clearly,because the resolution is too low.Why don't use other satellite map?

As far as we guess, it is because Microsoft gave Waze investment money (known fact). As part of the deal, they changed from Google to Bing for images (our assumption).

maybe you're right.that is not a good news.i hope bing can pay more attention to china. :lol:
