How do a play directions as a tour in Google Earth?
Touring and saving directions
Once you have a route displayed in the 3D viewer, you can use the tour feature to "fly" the route in the 3D viewer, and you can save the directions to your 'My Places' folder for later reference.
Touring the Route
Select the 'Route' item at the end of the directions listing. Click the Play Tour button:
The 3D viewer automatically starts the tour from the departure point, oriented in the correct direction as if you were flying over the route you have marked. The tour follows the route, stops at the end, and zooms out to encompass the entire route in the 3D viewer. See Using Tours for more information.
The important points in the instructions are:
- select the
Routeitem at the end of the directions listing
- click the Play Tour () button
So we have to note the important points in the documentation:
there is no
Routeitem at the end of the directions listing:
there is no Play Tour () button
Given that there's no way to play directions as a tour in Google Earth, how do i play directions as a tour in Google Earth?
