Google Earth 7.0 update brings 3D maps, Maps update brings offline maps

by: Mike AndriciJune 28, 2012

Google sure did announce a lot of new things yesterday, but it was slightly interesting to see the entire audience at the I/O Keynote yesterday enthusiastically cheering for one of the few things that weren’t entirely surprising: an update to Google Earth (now at version 7.0) that brings 3D mapping capabilities, as well as an update to Google Maps that brings the ability to download maps for offline use.

Google Earth Updated, Fixes Issues with Tegra 2 Android Devices

by: AlexanderJanuary 4, 2012

Google has just updated their Google Earth App, fixing a very pesky bug that was causing the app to crash during startup on Tegra 2 Devices. NVIDIA uses special instructions for the Tegra chip, and while they work amazingly well when used properly, sometimes different specialized hardware makes it difficult for generic apps like most of the Google Apps, including Gmail, YouTube and Google Earth to work right.

Google Earth certainly pushes the limit of what a mobile GPU can handle, and needed a bit of tweaking to run it all on the devices using a Tegra chip. Another form of the much talked about Android fragmentation, which looks like Google is trying to take a stand on [...]
