    What does Google Earth do that Google Maps doesn't?

    What are the benefits of using Google Earth? From what I understand, Maps provides the same usable features, no? So what is your reason for using Earth? thanks

    Have you used Earth man? To me, its basically something SUPER neat to play with and use lol. Just try it out and take advantage of the multi-touch

    None that I have found. I deleted it, would rather use the 30mb for something more useful.

    For me it was pretty cool for about 10 minutes and then I ended up uninstalling it.

    Well, I guess it depends on your needs.
    I'm planning a trip to Amsterdam and found Earth to be far superior to Maps when perusing Europe. With several side trips through Belgium and Germany in the works, Earth gives me route times, best routes, scenic routes, etc. that I just didn't find in maps. It also provides greater detail as to points of interest vs. Maps.

    Just my two cents.

    Its fun. When im bored I just zoom to random spots to see what they look like, like other countries and such. Maps is more of a tool. On the computer Google Earth is amazing for everything tho..

    I also found little difference so I uninstalled it as well. The maps with the satellite overlay is exactly the same thing and also you get street view if you long press on a location.
