Google Earth will give Free version GPS positioning

Hi

I have just found out that Google Earth is working on letting the Free version of Google Earth have the real time GPS positioning. This means that you can use it even when you dont have an internet conection as you use the cached images.

I don't know when it will happen but it looks like more than 3 months and less than 6.

That's great!!! I don't mind being alone but sometimes it is nice to have the big picture of where you are and which way you are headed.
