How are some of you getting so many points?

I luckily enough got Winnipeg (saw a guy in a Jets shirt lol)... and it gave me 2,425 points (when I landed it almost perfectly)

Unless it was some glitch...

If you look around long enough, there something that gives away the location (sort of like how you got Winnipeg). From there it's just good guess work

1) click around to find road signs or business names
2) googlemap the interesection
3) get 6,500 points a pop.
4) absolutely no profit

Australia manages to look like every damn country. Australia pictures should be required to have a kangaroo or a spider the size of a dog. At least then I would have some clue.

That's part of the game.

Going outside of the browser to google business names is no fun.

You still have to find the business names/street signs, etc. I see it more as a detective type of game in that regard, especially for generic locations with no discernible features like flags, Russian/Asian signs, etc. If we're just supposed to look at a static road/some trees and make a guess, then if I pick Western PA when it could just as easily be eastern Europe, it's just dumb luck if I get it right.

Is it cheating if you move around in the Street view? I was tapping the arrows and junk.
