I agree, it's an amazing program.  It also kept my bored 16 year old stepson busy for a whole day happy.gif

I believe the resolution issue has to do with what version you are on.  If you are on the free beta version, resolution is just okay as well as the date of the satellite images.  Some areas are spring and winter images patched together in my hometown.  If you subscribe to the service, then the resolution is no doubt better.  Just take a look at the google campus in N. Calif.  They give you a teaser of how good the resolution can be.

I love Google Earth. Where I use to live in Mexico City I can zoom in and see the tiles on the roof! But some of the images are up to 8 years old. But all-in-all very good!

I love Google Earth, I've found my school, friends' houses, all the important landmarks you feel like you should be looking at (i.e. Red Square, the pyramids) and its just fun to browse.

Yes, but is it worth the subscription?  I'm thinking of trying the 20 a year version (Plus), the other is about 400 a year on the site   ohmy.gif

Google Earth is cool, and unique. But, i couldn't zoom in on my cabin at my lake, nor any other cabin communities. It only has select areas, this is a flaw. We should be able to see all, not just main cities.

Agreed, but the others are saying that the subscription versions are better quality.
