Default Looking for mapping software for windows that can read from internal GPS on a laptop

Hey yall

Looking for a mapping software that I could use without data connection on windows with a laptop that has built in GPS in it.

I Would like satellite views of terrain and be able to add markers on my location for tree stands and stuff to accurately map them and bonus if I could make the map shareable so others could view it when I do get online.

We dont have internet at my farm house nor are we going to add it. So I would need something that can preload the data I need and then use without having to go online to get. If I would have to export to a private google maps file and share that way I can,

Any Ideas? I have heard Google earth now has GPS capabilities but have not messed with it yet as im just getting laptop setup.

if you can read the laptop location at each stand (hours, minutes, seconds) from the GPS (you could also use your phone), you can write them down and which stand they are for. Then you can make a custom map when you get back online and share it from google maps. The locations will span across any view available on google maps and google earth. Its pretty easy.

Thanks guys, Ill look into the streets and trips. The main issue with google earth that ive found is that I need a wifi or WWAN signal unless I cache the area before hand. It does exactaly what I need tho.
