On Friday, software giant Google released version 188.8.131.528 of its popular Google Earth program. The new version, a 45 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and changes:
- The “Enable Controller” option is now default on. If you have an uncalibrated external controller (such as a gaming joystick) connected to your computer, this could result in the Earth spinning with arrows displaying to signify movement. As a workaround, we suggest the following:
- Turning off “Enable Controller” in the “Navigation” tab of Options/Preferences
- Unplugging your external controller, or
- Recalibrating your external controller.
Google Earth 184.108.40.2068 requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 or later to install and run.
If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, let us know in the comments.
