    I just got a new gps and was thinking of getting the birdseye membership. Has anyone used it? Are the pics just the same as google earth? Thanks, Ryan

    Very similar to GE and the files are huge.

      I bought a 62s because of the satellite images. Not as useful as I thought it would be. Like stid2677 said, similar to GE, and some areas not as good.
      I'm selling the 62s and I'll just keep my 60csx.

        I was considering Birdseye for my G 62. Would you please explain the shortcomings of Birdseye a bit more... too slow,poor resolution, difficulty to actually use, etc?? Sounds like the "idea" is better than the product. I like the G 62 but never had the 60 to compare and bought it because lots of aftermarket products/software/maps are available.
        Thanks

          Poor resolution is a problem. Viewing the 62s screen in with birdseye image in anything but bright sunlight without the back-light is difficult. And the screen is just too small. Viewing Google earth on a computer at home is one thing, but viewing it on a 1.5x2.25 screen is like looking through your binoculars backwards.
          I bought the 62s so I could use the aerial images, but like you said the idea was better than the product.
          Try loading a couple aerial photo's onto your 62s before buying Birdseye, you might find it more useful than I.
