Terrain Aware Map

I have terrain aware access and was wondering what map is it that the program uses? The reason for asking, I would like to be able to view this particular map for whatever area I am flying just for comparison. Is there a particular website or link that could be used to check out the terrain the program uses?

As noted in the Terrain Awareness article:

The default data source is NASA's SRTM data. We use a specially formatted version of the RAW data and don't really have a public viewer for it. It is a pretty commonly used data source due to its worldwide coverage. 

The data was taken back in 2000 so you will have to be careful with earth that has been modified since that time. 

You may be able to check some of the data out here:
