View Full Version : Google earth question

18-05-2010, 05:37 PM
When browsing around in Google earth, the compass will often tilt so that "up" on the map is no longer pointing north, which I find rather irritating

Any way to keep the compass fixed to north?

Perhaps there is some kind of plugins API where you can write your own extension to do that..?

Do you mean if you rotate the earth upside down say so that south America is on top of north America with the south pole at the top? If so that is why because North is no longer up

I just hit the N key now and then, it also forces the view to vertical if it was oblique.
