How were you able to do this?
Create a custom Map Source for MOBAC. I did this by searching Google for "google earth custom map source mobac" or some such. Several of the search results show a short xml file, something like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<customMapSource>
<name>Google Satellite Map</name>
<minZoom>0</minZoom>
<maxZoom>20</maxZoom>
<tileType>PNG</tileType>
<tileUpdate>None</tileUpdate>
<url><![CDATA[http://mt{$serverpart}.google.com/vt/lyrs=s&src=app&x={$x}&y={$y}&z={$z}&s=Galileo]]></url>
<serverParts>0 1 2 3</serverParts>
</customMapSource>

Copy that to a .txt file, change the extension to .xml, and move it to the MOBAC mapsources folder.

Then in MOBAC, select Google Satellite Map as Map Source, and select zoom levels and area of interest as Kelly's pdf shows.

This solution worked perfectly for getting the amount of detail necessary for our jobs. Thank you!
