G ManI'm not sure what the problem is. It is a streaming application so connection speed and processor make a difference. Also it works better for me on my home connection rather than at work. I emailed you an overhead picture your place to Where you can even see the lines on the tennis court next door. On my version you can definitely pick out the shape of buildings but you are just looking at the roof. Even a few months ago you only saw the outline of the island.

KimberlyHi, guy .. what am I doing wrong? Using Google Earth, I get blurry general images that help me see certain streets and all, but I can't exactly zoom in on details of any of the houses that I see.

G ManIf you haven't played with the "Google Earth" in a while, I believe they have recently updated the satellite photos for Briland. Used to be you could only get the general outline of the island in the context of the bay from N. Eleuthera. Now the images are so good you can find the streets easily and even pick out specific houses. I think these are pretty recent because I can even see new construction projects in my neighborhood.
