It seems areas outside of the USA do not have road mapping or detailed satellite..yet. You should be able to zoom from view of entire North America down to a picture showing your home. Try the click and drag...amazing performance!

I donated to the SPHPBLOG Sourceforge project today. The project admin has a classic approach to donations:"...This software is free, as in beer. However, beer is not free!
