Google Earth, or is it Earth Google?

Hi All

Just found that Google Earth can be used with fs2004, has anyone tried it yet?

If so, do you think it's useful, or what?

I've played around with GE, and find it very interesting, and can imagine, that if it works well with fs2004, that it would make VFR much more fun, and less likely to get lost. You don't get lost! Well I do frequently, the built in terrain sim of fs2004 I find very misleading. Still it could be due to my age, suppose. 😂 😂

How can it be used? In what ways?

OK my friends, seems I've stirred up some interest, go to this URL, scroll a little way down, and a lot will be revealed. It is very interesting, but I'm a bit slow in understanding some of the technicalities, but know many hands make light work, I've heard! Group Wave

I just downloaded Google earth and checked out a few places. It just so happens we are taking a little road trip this weekend to a place we have never been. I found where we were going with it (the house we were going to). I was able to identify the land marks leading to it. Pretty neat.

Now if we can figure out how to make it work in FS2004. 🙂

Well, we have plenty of brain power on this forum I think, one of the brighter ones, will surely figure it all out.

All the info is available, when you download the programs as recommended on that site. I shall print it all out tomorrow, and then get a headache trying to put it into operation.

For me, it's a bit like lighting the blue touch paper, and retiring to a safe distance.

I'm off to bed, catch up tomorrow.

Cheers.
