    Website with some info:

    Download LInk: http://www.geocross.org/nmeage/nmeag..._installer.msi (latest release v 1.02)

    California Traffic (CALTRANS) download link: http://dev.keyhole.com/traffic/CalTrans.kml

    The program connects to your GPS and writes a google kml file every second or so with heading, range, tilt, and location. Edit the Configuration of nmeaGE as I've done.

    Go to Google Earth and go to Add -> New Network Link and edit it as such on my configuration screen, pointing to the kml file you specified in nmeage.

    You can also make your own icon. As you can see I love my TL too much.

    Turn your GPS on and get ready for the most awesome GPS navigation experience
    Best of all, provided you have a decent internet connecion, it's free!



    I made a quick n dirty CF 1.5 skin for Google Earth + NMEAGE.

    download : click here

    It embeds both GE and NMEAGE so you can send keystrokes to change tilt and zoom. The forward and back don't do anything for now but the play, next and previous song should work with CF.

    would it be possible to read maps off a data disk such as a dvd? so u cache a whole city (i dont know how much a map of a whole city would weigh but for example) and u just read it through the dvd while ur driving

    possible?

    Raichu626: that is just an antenna, you need something more like this:

    or this:

    romul: Google Earth does do caching, but the problem is in order to get the data into the cache in the first place, you have to "fly" over every spot in the whole city while you are connected to the internet.

    Once a second is as fast as you can update a network link in Google Earth.

    You should try out GooPs (and SKINbedder). See SbV3-P2 in my sig. There is also an updated SKIN for CF1.6 in the SKINbedder/Skins forum.

    No tracking/updating?

    I went through the whole thread but couldn't find an answer, so I apologize if this has already been answered. I have a BU-353 so I know it should work, but GE doesn't follow my position. The KML file updates (3 second interval) and I can see myself move on the map, but GE doesn't follow it unless I hit "Play Tour" which moves the map only once, not continuously. I've checked the KML export and network link settings several times.

    maybe: edit the link in GE and under "refresh parameters" check "zoom on refresh" or something like that

    Seems like it has to be under Temporary Places. If I let nmeaGE add it there, it works. If I add it manually it has issues.

    If you are having trouble with nmeaGE, you should try one of the other two solutions:
    EarthBridge: http://mboffin.com/EarthBridge/
    GooPs: http://sites.onlinenw.com/goops/

    ...and for a full touch-screen interface:
    SKINbedder: SbV3-P2 /w GooPs SKIN for CF 1.5
    Add-on: GooPs SKIN for CF 1.6

    Is this skin just for CF? Or can we use this skin in RR?
