  • You could use QGIS to edit your streets layer instead. It's free, and with the OpenLayers plugin, you can use Google, Bing, Yahoo, or OSM data as your backdrop. – Dan C Nov 20 '13 at 21:04

Probably the most expedient solution would be to purchase a copy of Arc2Earth, it will display Google tiles in ArcMap.
