    Any help in simple English appreciated.
    Hi Rach

    I cannot offer any guidance with the Kindle - no-one on the site has posted any info about using one of these.

    However, for the HTC, please read this thread:

I have tried reloading Earth and Flas Player but it hasn't resolved. Street view works fine in Google Maps and in Google Earth without using the link. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a resolution.

    Is the problem on a PC, Mac or phone?

    If it's on a PC, try rebooting the PC. If that doesn't work, try installing a different internet browser and setting it as the default browser.

    Hi Admin,

    The problem is on a Laptop running Windows Vista. I reset the default browser to Google chrome rebooted the system then tried again, the problem still persists.
    Google have a known problem with windows 8 and street view but there is no mention of any street view problems with Vista. The problem only occurs when the
    tinyurls are activated, in Google maps and Google Earth which I open the street view works normally. I have found a sort of work around by activating the Url then clicking the button in the upper right area of the page which asks would you like to view in Google Chrome, I can then view the area of the URL street view but lose any markers so it can be difficult to know exactly where you are. I will continue to try to find the cause and if I do I will report back.

    Regards
    Clive

    I'm sorry but I have no other suggestions ...

    Any solution/cause if found would be helpful.

    (Do you have another computer to try?)

    Hi Admin,

    Tried the link you supplied with no success, but after reading a lot of Google Earth / streetview problems and fixes I tried downloading Adobe Flashplayer as other versions and not Internet Explorer specific, Voila the problem is solved. Apparently the issue is related to the internal browser in G Earth not being an Internet Explorer product thus it does not recognise the IE specific version.

    Thanks for all the help, without the reference to tech-recipes.com I would not of expanded the searches I did.

    Best Regards

    Clive

    Hi there canalman!
    Is the POI download usable on my new satnav - as above - ?

    If so can you please suggest how I get the files onto it.

    Many thanks for your hard work.

    To the best of my knowledge none of the Snooper devices allow third party POIs to be loaded - sorry!
