Lost in Google Earth

I was just using the latest Google Earth — I’ve loved using it for many years. The best feature is Street View. If only it was easy to navigate in.

I know — I’ll use Google Earth to get a look. Well, the plan view was excellent, but as soon as I used the “little yellow man”, I could hardly control the navigation at all. It would swoop around out of control and freeze with typical “speed motion” smears like the following:
