    It's there in the middle of those posts above (page 26) ...here's the link:

    Needed: BETA Testers for Google Earth Plugin


    I just dowloaded version Google Earth 4.2.0198 Beta from September 16, 2007, somebody said above this is the latest version that worked. (It was Svyer who said in this Oct/07 post that the latest version worked - so it must have been the september version! :-), but version 4.1.7087 DID work for me in the past - it just didn't have traffic, IIRC). You can find all those GE versions here:

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    RH

    Smile RRearth and Google Earth V5

    Is it possible to adapt the rrearth plugin to the new google earth version (v5)?

    This plugin still works fine for me, and I love it. Not very useful in itself, but it's very cool. It's the single function that makes my wife go "wow" every time she is in the car. Music and videos she takes for granted, never uses anything else.

    What's new in v5? In any case, I'd like to see this plugin updated more frequently, and being used in more skins.

    Beggars can't choosers though!

    Haven't tried V5 yet.. so I don't know what's changed and/or what needs to be updated.

    Instead of what most people say, this plugin CAN be used as sole means of navigation in most urban areas -- the requirement is that you have UNLIMITED INTERNET in the car (fairly cheap on some countries). With internet, you're able to download live maps (without caching) and request routes which are drawn right onto the map while you drive.

    I think v5 has live traffic info. Since Google 4.3 they have streetview, but 4.3 does not work with RREarth.

    Interesting bit available on v5: GPS features available previously on the paid plus version.

    [edit] Google Earth Plus



    Discontinued in December 2008, Google Earth Plus was an individual-oriented paid subscription upgrade to Google Earth that provided customers with the following features, most of which are now available in the free Google Earth:
    • GPS integration: read tracks and waypoints from a GPS device. A variety of third party applications have been created which provide this functionality using the basic version of Google Earth by generating KML or KMZ files based on user-specified or user-recorded waypoints. However, Google Earth Plus provides direct support for the Magellan and Garmin product lines, which together hold a large share of the GPS market. The Linux version of the Google Earth Plus application does not include any GPS functionality.
    • Higher resolution printing.
    • Customer support via email.
    • Data importer: read address points from CSV files; limited to 100 points/addresses. A feature allowing path and polygon annotations, which can be exported to KML, was formerly only available to Plus users, but was made free in version 4.0.2416.
    • Higher data download speeds

    You can find POI info if you're ONLINE -- is that what you're looking for, or you wanted it to CACHE the information offline ?

    I messed with GE5 quite a bit yesterday, and it's requiring to almost to re-write the whole plugin, but let's see how far it gets..
