That doesn't surprise me at all with the video. They should put trucks back up using inflatable cushions.

Wow, I didn't know about such a progress on M6, Hungarian motorway network looks great now . Do you know if they want two these missing sections between Mohács and Osijek? Btw, I don't really like how are Istrian motorways marked. It is hard to recognise if is it half profile or full profile.

Well, sadly they motorway network probably won't change so much in a next few years because of the country's current financial situation.

Btw, also Slovak R1 and D1 have been updated. Not such a big change (30km), it the summer it will be better (+50km).

Southern bridge in Riga is finally (poorly) visible, I still prefer Bing maps though. GM works awful on IE9.

Maybe next year... It took more than a year to update M6-M60. For some reason the older section of M6 (M0-Dunaújváros) got the number M61
And M31 is also on GM now, as a main road

They have put Spanish A-22 all the way from Lérida to Peraltilla. It's open all the way to Siétamo! (Except two sections that are expected to open later this year)
Also, some E07 around Jaca and the first section of A-21 in Aragon... Those two sections only God knows when will open.

Google is increasingly inaccurate. They've been playing around with road settings, sometimes certain roads popped up as a motorway(like) road before, now they're normal roads. They have been far ahead of the current situation in Spain for quite a while now, some roads were already indicated which were 1 or 2 years from opening. Hungary is also poorly covered, with some single-carriageway roads indicated as motorways (M15, M70) and motorways indicated as regular roads (M2, M31, M43) and a wrong motorway number (M61 should've been M6).

M15 and M70 are drawn with the correct number of carriageways, but wrong color (like in Istria).

It took more than 2.5 years to update Trieste bypass. And it still doesn't work in "Get Directions". I also hate it that the branch to Fernetti (RA14) is colored yellow.

Map makers are still living in the old pre-internet age where you could get away with updating maps 1 - 2 years after motorways were completed. However, times have changed, I think it's reasonable to expect a new motorway to pop up in online mapping services within 2 months of completion.

Guys, use http://www.openstreetmap.org/ instead.
It's much more up to date - and if not, you can correct it immediately. You can use the imagery from Bing or Yahoo! for this.

Open Street Map is indeed more up to date, but I don't like the mapping, navigation and not to mention the lack of directions you can get from Google Maps. When it comes to getting directions, no service is better than Google Maps. There are still a lot of online mapping services where it's impossible to do a decent "via" route.

I remember my dad was looking for alternate routes to Italy, and I said: drive via Kassel and Würzburg instead of Arnhem - Frankfurt - Würzburg. But he got a much longer detour than I did, because every "via" destination goes via downtown areas. Imagine, driving from Dortmund to Würzburg via downtown Kassel instead of simply A44 and A7. Do that a few times and your alternate route is suddenly 50 kilometers longer than intended. With Google you can at least change the routes very easily.

But you can't choose route over those new roads.

I personally recommend www.viamichelin.com . For directions it's way better than Google maps.

Viamichelin is good but I don't like the user interface. Besides, if I want to get directions from Tallinn to Berlin, it tells me to go through Kaliningrad Oblast which is just stupid.

Google maps for the same route tells you to through Sweden and Denmark... I don't think this is much more clever.

EDIT: I didn't saw bogdymol's post till now
