    Hello,
    I can remember using a program some years ago that would allow you to put your start and finish points in and then you would get a virtual drive through (as per street view) I'm pretty certain that Google Earth was incorporated as well.
    I can't seem to find it now.
    If there is something I would hope that there have been improvements as the program I used would often crash though it was useful when it worked.

    Does anyone use something like this?

    Cheers
    Chris

    Sorry,
    I think I've found it now. www.gaiagi.com not a prog but a website.

    If it helps.... and you have a Garmin and use Basecamp....

    You can ( within Basecamp ) view routes etc in Google Earth.. (It's a menu option )..
    And then travel the virtual route in Street View...

    I used to do it for my motorcycle tours of Euro... Not so much with the Moho to date..

    Hello,
    Thank you for that. I do have Basecamp on my computer so I'll investigate.
    Not having much luck with gaiagi.com so fingers crossed.

    Cheers

    I used to use a bit of software that was create by a Dutch organisation but for the life of me can't remember the name of it. Might still have it at home but .......
    However if you search for Google Maps Streetview Player it brings up some options that may be viable for you using, believe it or not, Google Streetview images!;)

    Earth did have a drive through option a few incarnations ago.
    Last time I used it was around 8 years ago.
