0

The latest update for Google Earth Pro made some of its users to experience some issues with the application, since it could not function very well ever since downloading the update. Therefore, Google Earth Pro has not worked properly for some users and that can lead to a certain level of frustration in the future. However, there are solutions to each problem they encountered and they can be found on technology forums.

The Absence of Names

One of the issues that appeared was the name of places that did not show up for some users after downloading and installing the latest version for Google Earth Pro. The solution to this issue can be attained by confirming that boxes next to Borders and Labels and Places are both checked. In this way, it will make the place markers show the labels on the map as the users hover over them with the mouse cursor.

The Absence of the Map

Another issue that needs addressing regards Google Earth Maps that loads everything except the map. This also includes a black screen with colored spots, white dots, some red boxes and yellow borders. This problem can be solved by updating the graphic drivers. Other alternative is to set it from within the application itself; it can be done by updating the graphics driver’s software and then switching from Google Earth Pro to DirectX mode.

A problem that is similar to Google Earth Pro is that a user was able to install the application for free on their Mac, but it kept showing a black screen. One thing to keep in mind when using this application is to check if it is available in the country you live in, because not all countries are able to download and install Google Earth Pro.

However, if the user experiences trouble as they download or install this application, it is recommended that they uninstall and install the app, this alternative being the quickest solution if Google Earth Pro stops working properly.
