Why is the option "Google Earth" greyed out when choosing the map view?
Google Earth™ is only available after the complete system start-up. Google Earth™ can be pre-selected, but the satellite display is not yet visible (indicated by a greyed "Google" in the status line). After fully initialising the system, the display will automatically change to Google Earth™. The progress of initialising the Google Earth™ map is indicated by the "filling" of the Google icon in the status line. When Google Earth™ is fully loaded, this is indicated by the white colour of the icon.
Why does the display of 3D images change to the 2D view when going through a tunnel?
When passing through a tunnel, the satellite signals are either weak or not at all receivable, which is why the navigation automatically changes to the 2D view.
