Google Earth Files for Southern Pacific & Panama?

We are heading for the southern pacific and it would be great to use Google Earth Plugin in that region.
However creating all these cache files for the plugin (with bad internet connections) can be annoying. Especially when knowing that parts of this have already been created by others.
So has somebody such files available and is willing to share them?

You need to say what version of GE you are using. The format of the cache files change from time to time. The person sending the files either has to have created them on the exact same version, or they have to know what versions are compatible with yours.

A better solution than the GE cache files is to create .kap charts of the intended areas using the GE2KAP program. Any version of GE can be used and once the .kap charts are created, even corrected for position, they are easily shared.

OK, so we should actually go for GE kap files, good!
And as it looks there is nobody who can make such files available up to now, such a pitty.

Thank you for your help!
