I always thought Google Earth was not anywhere near realtime... that it acted similar to Google Maps website, where it simply takes the loaded satellite image for that area, which may very well be years late...

Hey first time posting here! Quick question, on average how long did it take from the time you got your production number to the time it took for the car to reach port?

i don't think this is what you are asking but if it helps any it took mine about 6 weeks from production number to unloading at the US port (east coast).

My vin isn't showing up on the site either. Shouldn't be too long until we can start monitoring progress.
Sweet, Sedona's riding side by side. We'll start a new thread when we figure out what ship it is, but i'd say we're certainly all on the same ship.
