Gang: Just found out (may be old news to some of you)...check out the following link. Satellite maps including water and, lat/long. plus some pretty nifty tilts, zooms, etc. Detail in rural areas is limited but the "grey" areas seem to provide much more detail.
You have to download the software from google...but it doesn't take too long and have enough space on your hard drive etc. etc. Also notes on which operating systems it will work on.
