I recently installed GPS
Gate to use with Google Earth
but, just for kicks, I tried connecting GE to my GPS
using the built-in option under the Tools tab on the GE screen
. It immediately connected and showed my location from an elevation of about 4,000 feet. Cool.
Except, that now when I start GE, it goes back to that location and won't let me view anywhere else - even with the GPS off!
If I try to view another location, the screen
immediately moves right back to my current
location, no matter what I do. I even went so far as to delete GE altogether and downloaded a new version but it does the same thing. It's as though once I clicked on 'connect to the GPS real-time', it won't let me unselect it, even though it's not selected.
I was hoping to cache views of Fiji
as were heading there next week (I downloaded a cache program to get by the limits of GE) but I can't even view Fiji
(or anywhere else) as my screen keeps coming back to Tutukaka, New Zealand
Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution? I sure would like to hear about it!
Fair winds and calm seas.
