Yes its, incredible and amazing, just like you have your own satellite or maybe one of those CIA agent s. I use it for a lot of things like finding locations or measuring the distance of one particular place or just surveying an area via birds eye view. It has been very useful to me for a number of times I've just use If I want to stroll without leaving my house.

I've seen it used too. Seeing you open discussion, I decided why not try it out now itself. I would like to see where I live. Thank you for reminding me.

I have used it before and was amazed by the detail. It takes a lot of the computers free space but it was well worth it. I was a yahoo person. Liked to meet all sorts of people from different cultures around the world and had a rare experience of meeting a college student from Pakistan. He actually suggested the program and took me on a vitrual tour of his city. It was really an eye opener for me and I learned a lot. I uninstall after that and honestly haven't used it since because it's such a big program. I think it is well worth it if you are really interested in a region or even moving into a city because it gives you a feel for what is around any certain area.

I did - i wanted to see if i could see my house. The area i live in is not very clear at all. u can sort of make out the highway and the blobs of trees. So i checked out my boyfriend's place (now ex) to see if it was clearer. It was neat - i could see his truck in the driveway and someone out on the yard but nothing moved for like 2 weeks.

Yes I have used it quite often. I got a kick out of seeing what my childhood home looks like now and other addresses I have lived at over the years.

I have used it many times to look for a few businesses. I like 360 degree street view that you can get for some cities, it really cool. I sometimes just play around with it and look at places I visited or places I'd like to visit. It really is fun.
