Hey Guino, Yea, after a few minutes I noticed that it indeed had a GPS lock on me. I have RR set up correctly, and never changed the GPS port... must have been some other issue here....
No I didnt post it anywhere.... it is a pretty rough draft... give me a day or so to clean it up and give it the standard "purple glow" around the buttons when down ect. What font does the BM skin use so I can swap the one I used out for it.
I'm getting this error on bootup of RR?
do you have the google earth free or google earth plus? I wanna be sure my gps will work with it beforei buy the plus.

@wfs1: Did you RUN RREarth.exe ? Either you didn't or you unzipped the files somewhere, ran it and moved them elsewhere. Or you could have simply misspelled the X,RREarth line.
I did accidently run the RREarth.exe in another folder/drive before I moved it, Dumb mistake!! I then I went into the windows registry and search for RRearth entries and pointed it to the right directory. Is there a way to reset these entries.
I also have the plus stand-alone version, since I had this before RRearth and since it doesn't support but 2 GPS devices in the Google Earth options setup, I haven't played with it much. So I was using it before RRearth.
I have this entry in the menu.skin file
i was under the impression the gps doesnt work with the free version, but hey if it does thats great news for me :)

Now, I see the RRearth skin but google Earth is not embedded into it.
In the task manager, I see multiple processes of goggleearth.exe being spawn'd. This is happening ( I think) because neither Exit or close commands are not closing the application. Each time I go into the RRearth screen it spawns another process even though there is nothing appearing in the screen from google earth.
I also discovered this.
Is RR Earth suppose to have an entry under places in google earth?
I found an entry when I went into google earth;
RR Earth - GPS Link
When I viewed the properties of this it showed that it pointed to a wrong directory, c:\rr\gps.kml so I changed this to C:\Program Files\Road Runner\RREarth\gps.kml. This is where the file is located??
I tried to cache a little bit and tried to start GE without an internet connection.
After performing the server login Im getting the error: The results of the diagnostics tests are being displayed in the browser. Please start Google Earth again after the following recommended steps.
After the error message it closes. So how will I be able to use it when I dont have an internet connection in the car? Actually I will have it most of the time, but it happens once in a while I do not.
Besides... the plugin really looks nice and it has a very very high -WOW- factor :) Keep it up!
