    Yup, I've seen one cruise by in Kansas, before. If I were stupidly wealthy I'd pay a trucker to drive a huge 18 wheeler on one side of him all day just to see how the mapping company reacted.

    They were driving through my neighborhood recently, I'm guessing doing updating since the 3D function already works here.
    I wanted to leave my mark on the camera but they got by me to fast.
