This is a great idea, especially for exploring the world! I have a small problem though. I am trying to zoom in on a multiple geosynth tag, it does not get close enough to open the details of the synth! 

This is on the eastern end of Bermuda (St. Georges) actually my unfinished church synth.

Oh, that's because you're in the bermuda triangle... geostynths go a bit wonky out there :)

Seriously though, we know about this bug and have a solution for it.  Nathan did great work getting this built during our "out of the box" week, and we did know there was a bug or two... but we just wait to share it. (A work around is to place your geotags just a bit further apart on the map so the break apart on the deepest zoom level)

Thanks for the info dariusmonsef, will try to move the tag

Switching to Bing Maps 3D lets you get close enough.

The same problem sometimes happens when you have Bird's Eye View turned on and the fixed camera position is slightly too far from the geotags, but it's easy enough to drop back to the 'Aerial' (Satellite) imagery and zoom down in.
