  1. How long before the resoloution of the maps is improved over the rest of the UK?

  2. I downloaded a fairly recent version 4.3.7191.6508
    with all the bells and whistles. It gave me a beta version (OK),
    but the version reverted to images from 2005. I know that these
    sites have been updated, and the version I had before would show
    more recent dates. Why would Google do this?
