    I used it recently for our trip to orlando to plan our route from the airport to the villa...very useful.

    Yeah it's fantastic. I have been able to see the house where I live!!!!!! A bit fuzzy when I zoom in really close, but I can definitely see it. Got my neighbour to come in and see hers. She now feels she needs a computer too :D

    No, is the answer to my question, they obviously haven't set it up properly yet!

    Sorry but I must be doing something wrong :confused:

    I downloaded this today because I was at a coffee morning this morning where everyone there was raving about it. They said you can see individual houses on there and everything. So I downloaded it. I can't see my house, my bf's house, my mum's house or even the houses of parliament on it. Just ariel views of places. What am I doing wrong?

    black-saturn. I have experienced the very same and await a reply with interest. Does it have anything to do with having to pay for an upgrade to get better defintion?
