    This is VERY cool.. reminds me of the mapmonkey plugin that was in development that has seemed to have died off.
    Thanks Guino!

    You can also cache the maps on one machine and just copy the cache (2 files) onto the CarPC. There's a cache builder application here in the mp3car forums.
    Roughly how big is your town? I'd like to cache all of NY state. Am I going to have to free up 20 gigs?

    Yeh I've seen it so it was a bit of a leading question really - ie had you built your own.

    I have a realy use for this in the future for where I'm moving too... no need for routing there but over head view yeh....

    Google Earth Caching

    Does anyone know how Google Earth Cache's? For instance, if I cache an area at a high zoom level (street level), will GE be able to zoom out, or are they seperate images? I know when you cache a higher level image, that you can't zoom in, just don't know if it works the other way around or not.

    "-Add to menu.skin ONLY: X,RREarth"

    Well I tryed this base in how RR loads other plugins (CdRip,WebBrowser) and is no working for me:

    "GE_START","PLUGIN;RRearth;C:\Program Files\Road Runner\rrearth\rrearth.exe"

    Just downloaded to test here on development PC, will see how that goes, and will test in the Car PC as the next stpe. WIll keep you posted along the way

    EDIT:

    Ok, sor far it's looking pretty good! I have still yet to get it to show my current position, via GPS, but I only started tinkering with it 10 minutes ago. I figgured a screen shot was at least in order

    Here is a Video of RR-Google Earth:
    (I appolagize for the poor quality, it was recorded with my QuickCam Orbit on a 26" LCD Monitor)

    I uploaded another video done with a "Screen Recorder" but it's not much better as YouTube really compresses it, and makes it very pixilated.




    I see (from the screenshot) you got it to display your GPS position ? Anyway, all it takes is the right RR version and the GPS port setting in RRConfig.

    Did you post that skin you made (in the screenshot) ? I would like to make it available for the BMV2 skin..
