    Why can't these programs just use the GoogleMaps API?

    Why must they use Microsoft Virtual Earth?

    I mean, it works okay in Loopt, but in NearBy its UNUSABLE. :mad:

    Why? Well, because they can... and maybe because their original code works with the Virtual Earth better. I always find that Microsoft Live Maps are more up to date than Google Maps.

    My house is 2 years old, my street is 2 and a half years old, it isn't on either.

    They are both equally out of date. :rolleyes:
