What's New

Version 7.1.2.2041:
  • The "Enable Controller" option in user preferences is now turned off by default. This prevents red directional arrows from displaying as a result of uncalibrated joysticks and other controllers being connected to Earth at startup.
  • For enhanced security, "Use HTTPS for Google connections" is now toggled on by default.
  • We fixed a bug whereby the cache size rose more...

Upon first launching Google Earth:

"Google Software Update is about to be installed.

This software will update any Google software on your computer when new versions become available.

Since Google killed "emaps", using this alternative is simply bloated with a poorly design GUI and time consuming to use.

I just downloaded this today, thinking that because MacUpdate just put it into the current crop of updates today that we would finally get version 7.1.2.2019. WRONG!!! More bandwidth wasted to get 7.1.1.1888 once again. You would think I wouldn't fall for this trick yet again...

That's odd. I've been using 7.1.2.2019 since 10-03-13.

Furthermore, I just updated to 7.1.2.2041 not even five minute ago.

You can get it by going to this URL:

Please note that this is the No Update version, which some people prefer.

The dmg file linked here, and the one MacUpdate Desktop downloads, contain version 7.1.1.1888, not 7.1.2.2019 as claimed. Please fix.

I also have determined that going directly to Google also yields version 7.1.1.1888. What happened to 7.1.2.2019?

One week later, over three weeks since the update date listed here, and Google still is offering 7.1.1.1888 for download as the current version. Version 7.1.2.2019 does not appear to exist.

Why is this so difficult for MacUpdate to keep correct, particularly when someone is reporting these mismatches? Every time I find a mismatch, I report it here and via MacUpdate Desktop, and yet the mismatches remain uncorrected. If you're in need of someone to keep up with this, I'm available for hire...

Google Earth/Preferences Navigation Tab. Unclick Enable Controller and Reverse Controls.

This should be done by default by Google, but for some reason they like to see their software rendered unusable for those of us with joysticks or other controller devices attached.

Google Earth on Quit it quits unexpectantly on all my Macs that have 10.6.8. This has been going on for some time but they never do anything about it. I guess they really don't care and for a while we on Snow Leopard couldn't even get,It would crash on launch.

The no-update version now says that in order to continue using this application you must agree to install google software update and permit it to run in the background and push updates.

Any workaround?

simply uncheck "Include Google Chrome..." above the Terms of Service window - it will enable enable all advanced settings where you can de-select automatic updates

Google Earth now requires OS X 10.8.3+ in order to show 3D. Therefore, if you have an older OS, you're screwed out of 3D. Get an older (v6 presumably) version of Google Earth to get BACK 3D.

If you're using the plug-in via a web browser, you have to again be using OS X 10.8.3+ AND a WebGL 100% compatible web browser, meaning either Chrome (of course) or Firefox, in order to get 3D. If you're on Safari, forget it. Opera, forget it. iCab, forget it. Etc. Again, go get an older version of Google Earth to get back 3D.

Maybe there's something Gee Whiz about WebGL. But the fact is that Google could have kept backwards compatibility and didn't bother. I'll let you add your own appropriate expletives. I gave the thing 1/2 star for DYSfunctionality on older systems and non-Web GL browsers, making it worthless in those situations. :-P

What do you mean by this? All of Google Earth is 3D. Does this version just show everything flat in Snow Leopard?

Derekcurrie, I don't know if this will help in this specific circumstance, but you can turn on WebGL support in Safari. (I'm using Safari 6.0.5 on OS X 10.7.5.)

First, open Safari's preferences, then click on Advanced in the toolbar (across the top of the preferences window). Now, activate the checkbox for "Show Develop menu in menu bar". Close the preference window.

Now, click on the Develop menu and select "Enable WebGL" at the bottom of the menu.

Hope that helps!

Hi venerable Cowicide and Jess: I thought I was specific about the situation. I found what I described to be the case in OS X 10.7.5 Lion. The problem does not exist in OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion.

I had forgotten about the WebGL debacle. I recall there were some arguments from Apple about why they did not want it running in Safari and I forgot they allowed it to run via the Develop menu. I have just turned it on in the Develop menu and will give it a try with the latest Google Earth.

Meanwhile, an older version of Google Earth, not using WebGL, work

Follow Up: With WebGL turned on as Jess suggested, the Google Earth Internet Plug-in v7.1 works in Safari 6.0.5 in general. I'm testing on 10.7.5 at the moment.

HOWEVER: There is no way to get Google Earth v7.1, the APPLICATION, to work on anything less than 10.8.3. I hope that is clear.

If you want the full 3D effect, versus just some lousy outline of bits of the planet, and you want to use OS X less than 10.8.3, forget about using Google Earth 7.x. I hope that is clear as well.

If you doubt me, go test it yourself on a version of OS X LESS than 10.8.x and report your results if they differ. I won't be replying further to this thread.

Not clear at all. I've been running the Earth app version 7.1.1.1871 on Snow Leopard 10.6.8 for quite a while now. Also, it looks 3D to me.

Maybe there's something wrong with your hardware?

One star for it STILL crashing on Search. Tried erasing prefs file and other tips. Still crashes every time I search for any place. Recent versions seem to fix nothing.

After launching on 10.6.8 after quitting I get an error message that it unexpectantly quit. It is the same on both my iMacs with 10.6.8. It used to quit on launch with earlier versions so I guess this is the best any user can expect that has 10.6.8 with Google.
