    Everything is all blurry :lol:. I've found my town but it just looks all distorted, if I tried to zoom in it just looks like one big mess.

    You gotta wait a while, until 'Streaming' is at 100%..
    I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere and it's blurry as well, but try to look at Tokyo, you can almost see through their windows! :D

    Ahhh, I see. I still can't get a great image of my town, but Tokyo & London are really really good.

    I had it for a few days, its awesome :mrgreen: My town is pretty blurry, but Rotterdam is really cool. Baghdad looks pretty flat though.


    That was so lame, Chris.

    Google Earth is just Google Maps in a program basically.
    I'll take a screenshot of my house when I get home [where I have GE installed].
