I have the same issue on my Mac with the Arizona file needing to be expanded from the command line rather than the Finder.

A quick glance indicates a good correspondence with the Bing imagery (funny that, both being from the same basic source).

Sadly, the area I live in is missing from the California file. But the other area I frequent in Arizona is covered so I guess I could help on importing it there. Should there be a unified setup for importing all this data or should each area/state have a separate plan, tasking manager, etc.?
