Australian map data?

My understanding is that Tesla uses Google mapping: my car doesn't show any of the roads/houses around me - just bushland. The area has been built since about 3 years ago, and Google Earth on my computer has its last imagery as 2019 - with my house on it!
The car's nav data is AU.2020.24.12097
Has anyone else more up to data map data?

Thought so! Around 4 years out of date.
Not everywhere. The version in my car shows the same information in my street if I use google maps on my PC, specifically my neighbours 2 year old solar panels and the house at the end of the street demolished 18months ago is still there, so its 18-24 months old on google, and my car has the latest map.

It obviously depends on when and where the latest imagery was done, but it seems strange that the car’s mapping isn’t anywhere near what’s available for free on Google Earth. Perhaps Simon Hackett has influence in the Tesla Adelaide office…..
