If you go to Google maps, find what you want to measure, select satelite image, right click on the map you will find a box that says "measure distance"

I use map measure for andriod. did a test a couple weeks back and it was one yard out on a known measurement of 400 yards so it works. a lot slower than a range finder though but still handy when your shooting buddy leaves the range finder at home
