EarthPos is a simple python script for Microsoft FlightSimulator 2020 and Google Earth Pro.

Track your flight route in Google Earth Pro in realtime as you fly.

It's especially handy if you have more than 1 displays and you can run the MSFS in one screen 
and follow your flight route in Google Eearth Pro in another screen.
----------
Installation:

1. Download and install Google Earth Pro on desktop:
    https://www.google.com/earth/download/gep/agree.html?hl=en-GB

2. Install Python for windows (and set the python path in the install process).
    https://www.python.org/downloads/

3. install SimConnect 
    open terminal (windows key, type cmd +enter), 
    pip install SimConnect

4. extract the EarthPos.zip to a folder

5. Run MSFS2020 and start a new flight

6. Run the python script: 
    open terminal (windows key, type cmd +enter), 
    cd  (folder where you extracted it).
    python earthpos.py

7. Open file browser and browse to the folder where you extracted EarthPos.zip
8. Double click liveposition.kml or liveposition2.kml file
9. and it shows your location in google earth pro in realtime. liveposition2.kml shows your current position + your track  and liveposition.kml shows just your current location.

Enjoy!

    is this mod like I start a flight, and run the mod and I can close the sim but my flight will continue in google earth pro and when I reopen sim, my flight will still be there.
