I am using the ortorectified GSI images as suggested here

Whenever I check the map against Strava data or OSM GPX layers it
seems to be very accurate. The problem with Yahoo import is not only
bad alignment but also that nearly all minor roads are mistagged 
(residential or path instead of track, unclassified instead of residential).
You'll probably find errors in my work as well, but I hope the error rate is 
much better than before.
