Map view is a road map view, Satellite is photos. Hybrid is a street map laid over satellite view (no longer available).
Satellite images seem to be up to date within a few months to a year or so (faster updating compared to several years ago when images appeared to be 1-4 years old).
Emirates other than Abu Dhabi or Dubai have noticeably less detail and information.
Do not assume labelled places, roads, companies, etc, are accurate. Often a place marker is added in an approximate location. Sometimes is added in a wildly incorrect location (for example Dubai Airport Starbucks was on a minor street off Umm Suqeim Rd).

RTA Public Transport on Dubai Google Map
A press release 18 October 2009 announced that the RTA public transport network had been included on Google Maps. This is intended to enhance the RTA's Wojhati Journey Planner, already in operation.
Wael Ghonim, the Regional Product & Marketing Manager said "We are extremely happy to see Google Maps used in a way that provides useful information for users in the Emirate of Dubai," among other things.
We ourselves were not so extremely happy when we couldn't find any public transport network on our Google Map. Perhaps our computer has not been properly Googlerised for maps yet. We tried to search for directions from Bur Juman Center to Mall of the Emirates (MOTE) using public transport, which we know from experience is easy on the Dubai Metro. Google Maps sent us to 8 different places in Bur Dubai, and Etisalat in Deira, but nowhere near MOTE.
