John---Out of curiosity-----which map are you using in TP? I know it's set to Yahoo by default, and everytime I fire up TP, my scenery doesn't look half as good as yours. Wondering if switching to MSN Earth will help. Thanks....

Kingnorris -

Yahoo is the best - I tried Virtual Earth - horrible in comparrison......I'd say stick with Yahoo - you'll get better results....:)
