    I finally got this all working today, but it doesn't auto update GE. How do you make GE reload the KML file? Whenever I manually re-open the file, it moves the map to where I am, but it doesn't continually move while driving.

    Look at the screenshot of post #1. The settings window has a refresh setting. Put it to automatically every second.

    No dude... that's how long the program refreshes the .kml file that it writes. My KML file is being updated every second just like I set it to. The problem is that the .kml is just a placemark, not a dynamicly updating thing like the CalTrans traffic overlay. To update the placmark, I have to re-open the .kml from within Google Earth.

    Don't you other people have it working? How to you get Google Earth to re-open the .kml file every second? ...or is the GEnema program supposed to do that too and it is just not talking to Google Earth correctly?

    I think I figured it out. I had never created a "Network Link" (from the "Add" menu), I was just File|Open-ing the KML. The "auto-create network link" check box was making a standard placmark under Temporary Places as well though, not a network link (???).

    Great way of using GPS!

    I have a problem with viewing right now though - it automatically zooms out to 7000 ft and when I zoom and change the tilt it won't stay. I can't find any option to change this...anybody know how?

    Great find!
    I like the remote control window thing! Anyone tested this? I am reluctant to install .Net 2.0 for this.
