    Default Google Earth

    Is there a way to link FS2004 to Google Earth?
    I'm using Windows 10.

    It used to be possible … see https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/conte...h-FSEarthTiles and scroll down a bit for the FS9 info.
    I remember trying something similar a long time ago. It's VERY bandwidth heavy (possibly not so much of a problem these days with broadband) and takes an enormous amount of local disk space, but yes, it's possible.
    Good luck

    Thanks, but not quite what I'm looking for.
    I would like to be able to show my current flight in Google Earth.

    I've done quite a bit of tile downloading with FSEarth Tiles, but it ended up, as you say, using up a LARGE amount of disk space. What it does is to load 'tiles' from Google Earth to be used in the sim. So you get photo real scenery. Not quite what I'm looking for.

    I did try an old version of G-Plan that supposedly should work, but on loading, it told me that I was not connected to the internet - I was!

    It's called Plan-G, not G-Plan. A G-plan is something a sex therapist would have you conduct for the maritals... LOL!

    Moving on. Read this blog entry dated from 2011. I can't link the section since the code didn't anchor it, but the title is: Live Google Maps integration. That part there talks about it and has a link to the Plan-G help forum. No, not for medicare in the U.S. Plan-G website: https://www.tasoftware.co.uk/

    For those with FSX, you can do this for Little Navmap thanks to Bina at AVSIM. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/5...-maps-for-lnm/

    Hi Robin.

    If Plan-G looks as though it might be what you want, I think Tim Arnot is still active at the CBFS forum. He also has his own support forum.

    I've used Plan-G but I thought it only shown a true map, I wasn't aware it shown true Earth tiles as you flew, or have I misunderstood?

    I've downloaded, installed & run the latest version of Plan-G. It seems to be working.
    No idea as to why I downloaded an old version..

    Have a look at this blog where it says "Getting Started." Looks like Sat imagery to me. http://mutleyshangar.com/reviews/jack/plang/plang.htm I never knew it either, and I need to try that plugin for Little Navmap as well.
