    Your link took me to the Google Play store.
    I dont have an account and use .apk files from other repositories to install programs on my devices

    When you click them does the Google Earth app open up and take you there ?

    I've noticed that, I think it's the cameraman screwing up when he or she takes the panoramic shot...

    I'm on the coast of Ecuador at the moment, on the beach...

    One of my favourite things to do in my spare time, for various reasons. Sometimes I use it to plan dream trips, or generally hunt around areas where I am going to visit. Sometimes I look at places that I know I won't ever get to see with my real eyes, just to see what I can see...

    I like to visit places like Bolivia generally speaking. I love looking at different regions mountain / forest landscapes. : )

    Lately I've been re-traveling the route I took when I travelled all over South America in the 90s, to see how things have changed if at all in various places since my last visit...

    Thanks Nivek.. You know I done so many hacks over the years to my tablet, I think I have broken the Google framework..

    When I open the GoogleEarth app it says its broken,, but still it works beautifully with no probs I can tell.

    The only thing that doesnt seem to work is to open up links.. My android dont think I have it installed.
    ANd sends my butt over to the google store..

    I dont mind it only takes me 2 min xtra to disect the link and pick the spot,, lol Doin so right now. Brb
