Live Local is a gimmick to try to counter Google Earth, / Maps. The thing will not let you do anything more than google map, and far less than Earth. It is true with a big pocket book you can go buy the birdseye views of some cities, and that is interesting, but you don't need that with the Google Keyhole technology, just the maps. It is the merging of the Topo info, and the photography that is nice, and it works across of google earth / maps database, not just a few cities. I am impressed with the birdseye photography, but I know that the newest they have of the Orange County, Ca (N/S images) is probably 3 years old, and the E/W is a bit older. Interesting but not necessarily useful
