Looks like Google have been busy, here is the new bus station at Cotillo. Now they need to update street view.

I just had a quick look at El Cotillo on Google Street view, as you do. It appears that Google have done a quick trip around the village last October. When navigating through the streets the camera flips to the 2011 view, if not updated in October.

The bench has been painted blue recently.

What does anyone think of the update with the blue line in the middle of the road used for moving forward/back ? I don't like it at all !! Much preferred the old idea with arrows. You used to be able to travel down a road sideways while looking at the houses etc, can't do that now. I find the current way of working much more difficult to use simply. IMO

I think the Streetview car driver got a bit carried away when it was in the Calderata area. There's coverage of a number of dirt tracks. All the way along the valley floor to Vallebron is one example.

They've mapped the inside of shopping malls. What's wrong with dirt roads? How else would I know where I am  ;D

They haven't update the Fuerteventura Golf area yet our complex is still the start of a building site.
