    Yay! It works now with the DLL version.

    ...well, almost. I can't get any of the buttons to do anything (fly to, directions, etc.). Maybe I'm not typing in the address with correct syntax.

    I tried:
    1950 Sawtelle, 90025
    1950 Sawtelle Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90025
    1950 Sawtelle Blvd Los Angeles CA 90025
    etc.

    The address bar, clear, and gps toggle all work, but none of the other buttons on the bottom do anything.

    Feature requests:

    If I show the left bar (ctrl-alt-b), RR closes it again right away. I would rather have a toggle on/off button for it as I may want to turn layers on/off.

    KML Log: I would like this to take the place of GPS Secure by saving the KML log and periodically uploading it to a server or copying it to a flash key.

    GAS/iGuidance compatibility: We now have Gas prices showing the route in iGuidance (awesome!)... I would like it to also do the same in RREarth, and even better, make it so when you plot a route in iGuidance or RREarth, it automatically plots the route in the opposite program as well. That way I can type a route once in to either program and then toggle between the two.

    Car Icon: Can you change the GPS location icon in RREarth to a pic of your car?

    Other GooPs features: Mostly tracking all your friends in GE, but the speed track and other features of GooPs are also cool. I really liked being able to switch between freeway/street/chase-mode zoom/tilt angles using my SKINbedder GooPs skin. I'm going to miss that, but it is well worth it for the ability to enter addresses which my GooPs solution lacked.

    Anyway, great work Guino. Please keep expanding upon this project as it truly is the nav system of the future now that more and more people are getting internet in the car. Plus it's free and always up to date with every possible POI. Can't beat that.

    I've cached the whole city I live in there and use it daily. I also have GPRS in the car so I can do routing no problem, but that's not very common for me.

    There's a cache builder application that was made by a user here at mp3car.com:
    Google Earth Cache Builder

    That's what I used... however, I did go over most "common" places I know to make sure they were cached. 1 City took me about 300Mb so caching an entire state would be kind of crazy.

    I'd try GE by itself in your car first -- once you've made sure it works by itself, then you should try the plugin.
    Today I found out that in my case with no Internet connection it also doesn't start. Program gives a message that there are problems to connect with a server. I thingk cashe maps will be solution.

    I tried: 1950 Sawtelle 90025 and it worked fine here. Fly-To and Directions ONLY work with a working internet connection. It is NOT necessary to enter any commas in the addresses ( , ).

    I'd have to make a new option to make it allow displaying the side bar -- not very hard but kind of beats the point of integration.

    I'm not sure what kind of output file GPSSecure makes, but it's not hard to make a position log, can you post a sample file ?

    It's a pain in the *** to make GE display the GPS position AND other icons at the same time. But it would not be hard to fly-to or route to the location (without displaying an actual icon for it).

    You CAN change the GPS Icon (and title) on the GPS.KML.INI file.

    You CAN make different Tilt angle settings, and you can set auto-zoom levels.

    Ok, I think I found a potential issue with starting the plugin without an internet connection, those having such issue, please redownload the plugin again -- Don't forget to regsvr32 the new DLL or it may not work.

    works great!! I have a merlin 360 sprint card so internet connection isn't an issue for me, but I use a pharos 360 for my gps, and it's not compatable with GE. What GPS rec is everyone using?
