not enough good maps for my location
I found where my house was located, unfortunately the map is for 1995 and my house was not in existence then. I did not find this out until I had zoomed in very closely and something looked funny. Then I saw the date at the top of the map. Cool though, especially since I was able to find it. And I did it the hard way - I started from the world map and zeroed in.
So I looked up my parent's address and guess what they got it wrong. In looking at the picture, they pinpointed a house across the street from my parent's home. Not their actual house.
I did it the hard way the first time to, then I realized that you could type the address. The map for chicago is from 2002, I guess they didn't have time to take pictures of all of America in one year.
