? is anyone else having problems with Bing vs Google map coordinates?

I love the georeferencing capabilities of FTM 2011 BUT, I keep getting weird offsets that occur in differences between the Bing map placename locations and data that I gather from other sites like Google Maps of Scotlandsplaces.gov.

An example.. I will find very precise coordinates in Google maps for a location, enter it into FTN, then the Bing map will display the push pin about 10 miles from the location of the same name on the Bing map.
