    you do need to zoom out when you have found a place though, and it all takes a while to load

    nice piece of kit. I especially like the fact that it makes the whole of Scotland sunny, which is more than can be said for 'Heather the Weather.

    Knowing that it is unlikely that I will ever get to the top of Everest, i've just been there for a quick look at the view on a very clear day.

    They won't let me download the software either, but apparently they're working on it, and I had to look back in a few days!

    Amazing! I know it's sad but I couldn't resist looking at my premises, and the satellite pic clearly shows my car parked outside with the sun reflecting off the windscreen!

    Uhh, nearly perfect, but I was surveying the view from Great Gable and noticed Englands highest peak is now "Scafel Rites"
    Doh!

    Cool views of Ben Lomond - one of the few areas in Scotland where they have zoomed right in. You can clearly make out the path to the summit, pity the Arrocher alps are just of view on the detailed zoom.

    Cheers for the link Hamish.

    Nice toy, just can't see a practical use for it.
    Have you tried getting it to take you on a trip around the world? It's really cool when it flies you around the globe.

    Speed is down to internet connection. It's much faster at work than at home. Also it caches the info so gets quicker with use.
