Sweet....

Google Earth ....

gotta love another USA tech titan. Amazing what $59 billion in advertising revenue, out of $66 billion in total revenue can do for the common CT'er

God bless capitalism

Oh, did I misread that? I had the impression it required verification of the phone number.

I used a fake phone number as I don't need unsolicited calls and texts. You do need a legitimate email though to get the verification code. I use my gmail account for things like that and not my main email,

I did that too and used gmail account for validation, not main email.

Is there any advantage to getting Pro for planning hikes and backpacking trips? I couldn't see any, but then most of their advertising seems geared towards businesses.
