PV*SOL Google map data is older than the Google map data in browser


Recommended Posts

As the title says I've run into an issue. This is the first time that I have this problem and I think that it might be related to the 2022 (R4?) release since I just got that yesterday.


Anyway here's what PV*SOL shows as map data when selecting Google satellite 




And here's the same place when I check it in a browser 



It seems like PV*SOL is getting old data from Google even though it says that the data is from 2022, I can assure you that this data is at least 2 years old.


I can work around this so it's not a big deal for this case but I don't think that it's supposed to be like this and I've never seen any discrepancy between PV*SOL's map and the browser map before.

After a bit of digging this isn't a 2022 issue since I get the same results in 2021. Maybe I'm just lucky that I've never encountered this before.


If I understand correctly the map data isn't actually Google map data but rather Tele Atlas data. Is that correct?

Hi Jimmy,

we are sorry that you are experiencing this flaw with the outdated maps more often now. It seems that Google is updating its map material region-wise, and most probably you are planning a lot in a region where Google is currently updating.

We do not have a release date for R5 yet, I am afraid. It will be released in the coming weeks, but when exactly is not yet decided.

Kind regards,
