Click on HELP up the top . Then click on GOOGLE EARTH BBS . This will bring you to the keyhole community page . In the menu on the left click on MENU and then FILE ATTACHMENTS . Click on any file under the word file and click OPEN . These images are stored in your temp folder in PLACES on the left . When you close google earth it will ask if you want to keep them or not .

How often does it get updated? The maps on there look pretty old. I found my house but the 3 spare blocks next to our block is still empty and people have been living there for the past 6 months?? Still good to have a look around the world though
