Google Maps Updates

I've just returned from a week at St Andrews in Scotland. In between watching the Open Championship I spent a lot of time wandering around the beautiful town, the castle and the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral.

Whilst I was away Google, of course, made a number of announcements:

Imagery Update

Google has updated some of the satellite imagery on Google Maps and Google Earth, including Queen Hatshepsut's temple in Egypt. You can view the updated areas with the help of this KML.

Google Maps Directions
Google Maps Send-To-Car service has been extended to more than 20 car brands. Drivers of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles in the US enabled with Ford SYNC can now send business listings or addresses found on Google Maps directly to their cars.

If you own a Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Hummer, Pontiac, Saab or Saturn or any OnStar equipped GM vehicle you can also use Google's innovative service.
