    I was so fascinated by the Google Earth application that I went ahead and purchased the PLUS version.

    However, I can't see any difference from the free and the plus version.
    I've visited the FAQ and the forum. Neither gives me any answers. When loged into the forums it says (at the bottom of the page that I'm allowed to answer to posts and to start new threads (topics), however, I can't find any buttons like 'new post' or 'reply' or whatever.

    So in short, can anyone tell me the difference of a 'PLUS' user ad a normal 'free download' user?

    I haven't been able to figure it out.

    In addition to the basic features, Google Earth Plus includes:

    GPS data import - read in tracks and waypoints from select GPS devices
    Note 1: Verified support for Magellan and Garmin devices only
    Note 2: Does not support export of tracks or waypoints to a GPS
    Higher resolution printing (greater than screen resolution).
    Customer support via email (not just web).
    Annotation adds draw/sketch tools for richer annotations (can be shared as KML).
    Data importer read address points from .csv files.

    Thanks!

    I thought I got a few more high resolution maps to look at (as places outside the US is a bit scarcely covered).

    I don't have a GPS, so I guess I won't be needing that feature. The printing resolution thing is fine.

    I guess I basically donated 20 bucks to Google, which is fine as well :classic:
