GPS Tracking on the Go

Google Earth Plus, Pro and EC allow you to track your movements in real time via GPS. For example, you can view a live GPS track of your drive in a car on a laptop as you travel. To do this, you'll need a GPS device connected to your computer.

After you complete your trek, you can view an animation of the journey using the time slider.

Great question. You can view your progress using a cached version of the imagery. Google Earth uses this cache when you are viewing imagery offline. This enables you to view the earth without an Internet connection.
