$25? No offense but is this legit? The site looks a little bit... sparse. The only legit one I'd heard of was Arc2Earth (http://www.arc2earth.com/ ) but... now they are closed!
Google is shooting themselves in the foot I think. I've seen a lot of smaller sites, even big ones, running from Google to Bing or Here or even Esri because they are now charging and making it harder to use. Their 'free' API key with certain number of hits, I hadn't been able to get to work, after one hit it seems to shut down. Hm. 3rd party devs are what make or break a company. (Esri...publish unminified JS API and file GDB, with NDA would probably help..) 3rd party devs made the iPhone a success. 'mapplets' were amazing but Google killed those a while ago and now this. Oh well. I may make a Bing widget soon.
It's legit. Our department has used it for a couple of years. It has maps satellite and a really cool transparent hybrid later that we use the most. The satellite imagery is much more up to date . And that price is promotional we paid more when we got it .
