    Default Hybrid Map Alignment

    I'm not sure if this is normal, but the Map and Satellite Images are not aligning correctly here in Cairo. If you look at the attached pic, you have three lines representing roads going from left to right. Basically, the 3rd line at the bottom, should be where the 1st line at the top is for the Map Image to align with the Satellite Image. Furthermore, the Corniche Road, marked in yellow, which runs from top to bottom and is currently sitting in the middle of the water should clearly be moved over to the right to align correctly with the road in the Satellite Image.



    The Satellite Image is what is correct here because if I were to view the Satellite Image alone the location is perfect, but if I were to view the Map Image alone, the location is way off.

    Basically, the Map Image has to be moved up and to the right to align correctly with the Satellite Image.

    Is anyone else having this problem and if so, is there a fix to this problem. It really kills the whole GPS thing as you can't use the map view to get around as the location displayed is incorrect.

    I've submitted reports to Google's vendor about it, but still no fix. I think the more that point it out to them, the more likely it will be fixed.
    For street maps submit here: Map Insight

    Is this a Cairo, Egypt problem or is it a problem everywhere?

    I went ahead and submitted a change report using the link you provided, but I doubt they'll do anything. Egypt is a no man's land :-)

    This really sucks.

    Not sure, but maybe this has something to do with the GPS function being disabled in Egypt. In order to get the GPS function working in Egypt, we have had to replace the file locationd in usr/libexec/ with a patched file.

    See this sticky which describes and resolves the issue http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/f148/56852.htm
