It seems that Google has added also more detailed data about Belgium too.

My hometown Brugge hasn't been having as much detail as it now has.
C.f. ...)&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=33.435463,82.265625&ie=UTF8&z=16&ll=51.206359,3.222685&spn=0.006453,0.027122&t=k&om=1

Before a lot of streets, including mine, were not known by Google. Now Google knows even where my house number is...

So, Google, you've done already a good job, but some more detail would even be nicer since Bruges looks really nice, and I think it would also be from the air...

Awesome. Finally can add listings for businesses in australia.
And a point to point driving directions is good too!
If only they had the option of avoiding a certain road (eg, tollways)

The directions would be more useful if they didn't include freeways that aren't even built yet: ...

The section of the M8 Western Freeway bypassing Deer Park won't be completed until 2009.
