Has anyone used Bing Maps (and it's great Birds Eye view) in finding J-Tin? I've been looking at a few leads in finding a car to restore, and I've been quite shocked at what i've been seeing. Just wanna see if anyone has used Bing Maps successfully.

This is the location of a J-Tin that I got a lead on: Location

Not Bing, but I have used Google Maps after flying in the helicopter to pinpoint some JNCs. I have found quite a few that way.

Ridiculously outdated after viewing. Noticed a White Datsun 510 wagon in front of someones yard via Google Street View, and found out later they had it scrapped!!

google maps are years out of date. It showed my mazda parked in a flat carpark 4 years after I had moved out!

I've used google maps to show someone where to go to find a car out in the bush though.

Bing Birds-Eye view too. They still have several views of major construction projects still in their infancy stages where I live, when they've already been completed!!

if you find something its like a lottery if it is still there haha. Pretty good chance if you find stuff in fields/forest that it hasnt moved. Its too bad that even in my area it shows before my home was remodeled..and that was years ago.
