    That's great thanks! Unfortunately they are experiencing problems in processing license key requests. Do you know if one can download Google Earth Pro and use it for a trial period? does one need the key to test it?

    After submission if you get error, just try to reload the page, Browser will ask you to confirm to resend the data, and the next time you should be done. And it takes much lesser time than filling out the whole form anyway.

    After struggling for a day to get the key, the installer gets stuck almost immediately with "the download failed"...

    Update: Sign up is no longer required for Google Earth Pro. Click here to download Earth Pro, then sign in using your email address and the License Key GEPFREE.

    There must be an FAQ on Google & why are so many rushing to get something just because it's now free?

    Mikko makes some key points here that nothing is really free without giving something away.

    It was not huge for me, only 100 MB. And I must say that it's cooler than I thought it would be. I can see my whole neighborhood in 3D.

    Do you think they are spying on us?
