Funny... In one of the questions, they showed me a pic of the middle of the ocean then asked me where is it...

45 miles, if you get a bit of sea and land it's acutally quite easy

21 miles! ok, i'll stop for a bit. try and beat that. Post a screen shot if you can.
It's a great game Andreas. Well done. I've got a screenshot of my 21 miles one if anyone wants to see it.

Wow, that will be hard to beat. I guess the resolution of the world map is about 20 miles per pixel – it looks like you hit the exact position!

Well done Andreas, great tool that will get great incoming links.

I've just got one that says "sorry, but we don't have imagery at this zoom"

How am I ment to do that?

Uhh ... you could guess which areas of the world have the worst satellite coverage :) ?

Initially the satellite image was shown at an even higher zoom level but the no-imagery-message appeared way too often. After zooming out a bit I thought it was gone for good. Apparently there are still some areas without coverage, event at the current zoom level.

I can't get it to work now... it always loads saying "we don't have imagery at this zoom level..." Did Google get tired of the indirect traffic? Anyone else have this issue?

My addiction is unquenched!

Suggestion: Why not make the cursor a small rectangle (the same proportions as the view window) so you can position it on the map in exctly the same place as the view. It could be possible then to get some stunning accuracy. At the moment I am not sure which part of the little hand is the actual selection point.
