110828GPS and Google Earth
- Apr 30, 2010Everyone keeps talking about GPS and Google Earth. That brings questions on each topic to mind.
1. How does one find a GPS that shows addresses when we don't have them here?
And how do I find my GPS coordinates? And please don't send me to the Municipalidad in Limón they are completely Clueless about pretty much everything.
When I moved here a few years ago I went to buy a GPS in Arizona and was told it would pretty much be useless in Costa Rica because they didn't have maps for Costa Rica. Has that changed recently?
2. Google Earth - I've tried using it to find my house and when I zoom in close enough to maybe see the roof, it looks like a smeared green fingerpainting.
I've also tried Google Maps and it says it they can't zoom in that close. Any suggestions on what I might use instead of these two?
