the satellite map you found under "settings", is a static background image.
TZ is talking about a satellite overlay with realtime images
updated every e.g. 15 min (like the wx radar overlay).
Sat images may be obtained from http://en.sat24.com/en/
We seem to be at crossed lines then - my OP here was not about satellite weather info overlay (such as radar info), but more specifically about satellite "map" overlay - which is exactly what you get using that Settings panel option - just a pity its not more accessible from the main screen. Other Map overlay options would also be advantageous like open cycle map etc
