Type your address in slowly - one letter at a time, and watch what happens - wait for the window to change after each letter you type before you type the next letter.

    Nope. Showed a house 1 street away. Close, but no cigar.

    Exactly the same thing for previous addresses as well.

    More work required.

    When I first started typing they had me in Africa,then into Canada,but When they got me iin the US it was in Colorado.
    My street name has 3 words in it though, They actually had my house by the 3rd letter of the second word.
    I don't know how often they update it though,because in the driveway was the car I totaled on April 7th.

      The pic of my house was from last summer.
      In fact depending on the angle or view from different parts of the street I think they where taken on different days (Jeep parked in different spots, grass different lengths).
      It got my street by the second letter of the city name but it was showing the house across the street. It had me in England up to that point.

    Here's what I got when I typed in "1":

    "1" is standard-looking enough. Familiar looking, like an amalgamation of many many streets I've seen before.

    The phone company knew where you lived years ago. They even wrote a book on it.
