    Excuse me for asking but what on earth does the above quote mean? Which is the "English" way of spelling it? Which "it" do you mean?
    It is TORREVIEJA to 99.99999999 per cent of the people in Spain--probably the world as well until Google Maps had a brain storm.
    What has the "English" way of spelling it got to do with anything?
    Well my country is 'Danmark' and the capital is 'K°benhavn'. Anyway Google is using the English names for country and capital. Probably more useful to most of the population on earth. Same with Spain (Espa˝a)

    Just report it. Eventually Google will respond and give you a reason why it's not wrong, then you can argue with them. That's how it usually goes with Google. I've argued with them a time or two. They just got back to me yesterday in fact, about a report I filed six months ago.

    Oh, and they still insist that my friends driveway is a through street, even though it ends in the middle of a soybean field on their own photos.
