    I tried typing in individual addresses for my town. INTERestingly enough, however, it is a half-block off on one of them, and across the street on the other.

    It uses the satellite pics similar to the ones from google maps and terra server. Seem to be the same images.

    It's pretty darned cool :D

    Typed in my office just now, and it is a quarter mile off. Nice spot. I'd rather be there! Probably intentional software error to deter stalkers. Does make you wonder about the GPS capabilities, though. :D

    What I want to know is if in the layers you can get the addresses to show?

    Just enter in full address, then click "Satellite" in upper right hand corner of map. Zoom at your leisure.
