A friend showed me this last night, and needless to say I have been playing with it all day today. You can put in a starting point and a destination and it will drive you there on a satelite image. They also had 3D maps of some cities. Just wondering if anyone else is addicted to this as I am?

Yeah, the largest city in the U.P. (Marquette) is all fuzzy, but my hometown of 1700 people is crystal clear. Odd what they choose to photograph and what they don't. I also noticed that Honolulou is mapped, but Pearl Harbor is fuzzy.

That's pretty badass. Can even see my 95' Bird and my Taurus in the driveway.
Anyway to find out how long ago it was taken? It's atleast a year old.
Whats your address dude I want to check it out?

You can see my brown roof and my neighbors pool , but not too much of my house there is too much tree cover.

usually only popular areas are going to be detailed, outskirts and residential areas aren't usually very detailed at all.

Yes .. go check out the battleships and carriers in Norfolk VA. lol I look at that constantly too It's just plain f'n awesome.
No battleships there, just lots of missle cruisers and destroyers. Kinda makes our bases in Halifax and Esquimalt look tiny. :(

When I looked at my house I could see both patrol cars(mine and my wife's) in the driveway...but it is pretty old, because there has been a freeway near our neighborhood for a while now...still pretty cool though.
