    Learned something new, I never thought of using terrain view that way.

    I also use Mapquest at times, google maps doesn’t always have the newer streets listed and I keep Microsoft Streets and Trips as a good ol stand by when I’m out of mobile broadband (in the boonies or in canada) and wi-fi range when I want a overall view with the ability to zoom in and search for things where the GPS would be slow and tedious for such purpose.

    I have Rand in my truck and it works very well for this kind of stuff. But I also use Google to pin-point an address. And PC miler to show me the run. Thanks to you I can let Google do all that right from the start. Rand get’s it right most of the time, but this is better. Thank you.

    at about 7:00 do you mean street view? if so the easiest way is to drag & drop the little orange guy right on top of the scroll bar on the left of the map. streets get a blue overlay showing where you can drop it. if you don’t get a blue overlay you cannot drop it at this position. maybe you’ll find little blue circles indicating photos that were taken at this position. not as good as street view but can help as well ;-)
