    Cockpit view now displays city names, borders and more. Why?

    Hi guys! I recently experienced problems with cockpit view: Since yesterday all of a sudden cockpit view displays places such as cities, municipality borders, borders and other details (as shown below).
    Didn't change any settings on my computer (runs on Windows 8 Pro, but I even tested on a Windows 7-system today and experienced the same problem). The problem appears in all browsers I use (Google Chrome, Firefox). I tried to re-install Google Earth and/or Google Earth-Plugin several times. I've even deleted all remaining Google Earth-folders manually from my hard disk, but the problem remains. The settings in my Google Earth-installation is set to only show plain maps. Everything else is switched off, even places, borders and 3D-buildings. Even though the problem remains. Anyone who knows a solution or anyone else having that kind of issues?

    It looks like this is a new feature, i find it useful as it gives more information and i can find the position of the Aircraft is easier.

    I think this would have been added by Google.

    Hi speedbird1960. The idea about that new feature, if it is one, is pretty good, especially to display the names of cities, mountains and lakes is maybe not a bad idea at all.
    But as you can see on the picture I uploaded above, the several yellow and green borders are "lumped together" at the horizon which looks really poor.
    I hope premium users of FR24 soon will be able to choose in settings which textures to be shown on map.
    Personally I prefer the plain view like looking out of an airplane window, but of course I do understand this is a matter of personal taste.
