Hi, does 16 only produce US maps?

No, here's British Columbia https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DFGc0JDWAAAeZ1S.jpg

Remember though that it is geostationary, i.e. parked at the equator, so it's view towards the poles isn't great.

More pics.

The data from GEOS16 is fantastic! Huge improvement. They still have a few bugs in getting the data out occasionally, but all in all great pictures. The storm in the Northeast today is really impressive from GEOS16:  http://mikeymsweather.com/wxGOES16-HAniSLoops.php  Thanks to Jerry for the script.
 
Cheers

That's terrible news! Hopefully they can come with some kind of a fix or workaround, but it sure doesn't sound promising right now.

Unfortunately the situation has not improved  :(

WooHoo! Now it has and we are getting GOES-17 (West) imagery  :D  It's not fully good yet but the local TV guys are using it. Time lapse here
