Default Google Maps truck pics

Google finally updated their satellite pics of my area and I was able to find my trucks at work and at home. Pretty neat, these are from less than 2 months ago or so.

My ranger at home



My F-150 at work

Have you guys even seen the car they use to take the street view pics? I seen it last year in GR, it was one of those pt cruisers and had about a 5' pole with a 360* camera on it.

I remembered when google first launched that. I saw it and I happened to look at work. It showed are parking lot street view style. There was a guy out side working on his truck. I showed some guys at work. It ended up at the big boss and the guy was suspended for 3 days. They were able to pin point the time he was out there based on the shadow on the ground and other cars in the parking lot.

They have updated the satellite one of my house. Because our baseball field shows up. I just did it last summer. Red are the bases and yellow is the pitching rubber
