    I don't know how often Google maps is updated, but they usually stink when it comes to something I try to look for right here in my home town. I wish I knew how to contact someone in "authority" to suggest that they get their act together!

    Until about three years ago, the images in Google Maps of The Netherlands were updated several times a year, with an increasing percentage of high-res images. Google Maps was consistently better than Microsoft's Live Search Maps. Since then, Google Maps has remained completely static, so it's now seriously out-of-date in several areas, and generally behind Live Search Maps in resolution...
