    My other reason for wanting to use Google Earth is that it fills a lot of functions in one program that other map only, or navigation only programs don't do.

    This sounds cheesy, but since it has the power of google behind it you can do location based internet searches.

    For example me and the wife love to eat a Cracker Barrel when we travel. I had no choice on my way home from my trip but to make a overnight stop in El Paso, TX. There were three Motel 6's in town (pet friendly).
    Logic told me I should stay at the one on the far side of town to beat morning traffic. But looking at the location on google earth, it was between what looked like a junk yard and a rail station.
    Then I noticed that one was right next door to a Cracker barrel because it popped up automatically on GE. I was able to survey the area and find it was all new shopping and was a nice area of town. It made the stay much more enjoyable. (Morning traffic sucked of course though)

    BTW here is a link to the google maps overlay

    I like Google Earth for all of the extra info you can add to it, such as live weather data and storm warnings. This info is very important in the central part of the US this time of year. We spend a lot of time driving between Nebraska and Texas, but not enough to know the names of every county we pass through. A weather radio lets us know a storm is somewhere, but Google Earth lets us see the warning box and whether or not we're in it or traveling toward it.

    WW and GE

    Don't get me wrong... I also love GE. Functionality wise, it is great. However, if you want to use it as a front end that can be automated it is not there. WW, to me, is a great barebone 3D engine that can be sculpted to do whatever you want it to do.... you want location based searches or traffic? It's all here http://code.google.com/apis/ or here http://developer.yahoo.com/

    If you don't want to have that level of control and are just interested on GE itself (i.e. not a GE-like raw platform) then by all means use GE.

    that address "earth.google.com/comapi" did not work. Is there a typo?
