Romania on Google Maps

I am not only disappointed, but really frustrated by the status of Google Maps (Mihnea has an excellent list of facts -- link in title)

Here are some facts to help you digest the ugly truth:

  • Romania has the 9th largest territory and the 7th largest population among the European Union member states
  • Bucharest is the 6th largest city in the EU by population within city limits
  • Bulgaria, who joined the EU at the same time, has Google street maps
  • Apple has been selling Google Maps-enabled iPhones in the country for over a year now
  • even an Android device will soon hit the local market
