This addon must be updated. Is old, doesn't show the caloris basin, either the other side of Mercury.Years ago a spacecraft was sent to mapping the other side of Mercury. Please update.

NASA has only mapped one side of Mercury. That's why. They've sent satalites twice but mapped the same side every time. They are planning another trip to Mercury soon to map the other side.
