satellite imagery

What is a good way to download satellite imagery? We find Google Earth really cumbersome, especially when we download from countries with poor (or expensive) Internet. We heard of SAS Planet, but I have yet to find out how it works... Any other user-friendly downloader on the market? Any that will overlay with Navnet 3D's TZT? thanks

Note sure about Navnet overlay. We are huge fans of GE2KAP files that we create and then bring into opencpn. In short you take a snapshot of a google earth map of the location you plan on visiting and with a click of a button you creat a chart. We use opencpn to view thus chart. We think it's another GREAT tool and live it

Safe sailing

Chuck
