Default Satallite Maps

I am getting back into hunting. I used to use Delorme satallite maps but they have changed their product. I used Google Earth, they had a ($20) membership that let you print 8x10 maps. They changed and now it is a $300 fee. Is there are a good affordable satallite map application or service that I can get to print maps? Thanks Dan

I have used mytopo.com in the past. Seems to be what you are looking for.

Im pretty sure you cannot print with it, but Bing.com or bingmaps is pretty neat, if you zoom in all the way the detail blows google maps away. I use it mostly for fishing new lakes, and locating docks/ shallows, but recently used it on my fathers hunting land and found some neat creeks/ drops. Again its zoomed in alot and printing probabaly wont happen

Try using this map application. Most of its features are for colorado but you can use some functions for anywhere is the USA. It might hep you out. http://ndis.nrel.colostate.edu/maps/...=1&X=400&Y=320

Both Google earth and mytopo.com will let you print 8 x 10 satellite or topo maps. Google Earth is simple to print, but if you have any problems just do a “print screen” (PrtScn key or Ctrl + PrtScn depending on computer). This print screen option also works for Bing maps. For mytopo just go to the “free browsable online maps” section on the lower right corner main page. Browse to the area you want (probably want to switch to topo) and you will see the option to print to computer on the left side lower corner of the screen.

If you are using a new Android telephone and get the backcountry navigator app, which works with the phone’s GPS (no cell phone reception required) you’ll get access to all the topo and satellite maps you want right to your pc for a one-time fee of $9.99. I did that a year ago and I think is the best maps application so far. No need for $400-500 GPS units. You can take the file you download to a Kinkos store or any other printer and have a map the size you want for a lot less that you’ll pay buying from map vendors (such as mytopo).
