    I know a few out there have idevices or might even find one. Here's an app which will let you easily measure distances and show you a satellite map image of whatever is on the planet. The resolution is fairly decent and it is easy to use. It is also much less crashtastic than google earth. The app is called "measure your land" and it is free. I'm not sure if there is a similar app on Android, but it might be worth looking into. (Whoever finds an Android version to this app is welcome to post in this thread or just make another).
