Well that's a great recommendation but, did you read my post? "...without GPS locater" aka without the use or help of a GPS receiver or locator of any kind.

I know the address intersections, but all the maps I find are way too small. if I had a 40" screen, google maps would be perfect, but I don't have a big enough screen therefore cannot get the map big enough.

Thanks anyways
