Hello All, Here are the steps to follow to allow GE to automatically follow your plane positions: 1. In FSC9 ensure you have the "Show Position in Google Earth" selected. This will start GE automatically and show your initial position. 2. Switch to GE and look on the "Left" pane under "Places" and right click "FSCommander" under "Temporary Places" and select "Properties"... screen shot below: 3. Go to the "Refresh" tab and select "Fly to View on Refresh"... screen shot below: That's it!!! Now when you start flying you'll be able to see that GE follows you. FYI... don't bother about changing the "Style, color" tab and "Altitude" tab as they are defaults set by FSC9 when the KML file is updated to show the updated Aircraft position and therefore it will get set back to the "default" values. Volker & Sascha... don't mind if you guys do a bit of tweaking and pin the post if needed to help others. Enjoy!!! UPDATE 01-30-11: I've been able to "force" GE to give me a higher altitude (10miles to 15 miles) by sizing the GE window to encompass a lesser real state on my monitor. I size my GE window to be 7 inches by 7 inches. Hopefully this little temporary work around works for you... but I've seen that it sometimes switches back to the 3K foot view and then eventually back, but better than nothing. Just in case I use GE v6.
