    Well if you dont live in the sticks you can get a birds eye view thats a diferent pic.

    It also seems to move faster than google but Im sure there are only so many satelite maps avalible.

    Check out our smaller yard and you can see my K5 in the parking lot on birds eye. Search for 8457 Richmond Hwy, Alexandria VA and zoom in and click birdseye zoom :D
