Using Google Earth, I have found it provides Incorrect Longitude & Latitude information, wereas Google Maps provides the correct Longitude & Latitude information? Anyone know why? I suspect it's because you need to buy a licensed version of Google Earth to get the right Longitude & Latitude information output. Just wondering if anyone knows? Thanks!

Right... because no son in high school would ever not be at high school when he is supposed to be... ;-)
Thanks for the explantion. That is interesting that different GPS programs are using different units of measurement that are incompatible. But the difference I am seeing between Google Earth and Maps locations is miles and miles. Seems on purpose.
I just realized I answered a question you didn't ask. Google Earth is based on straight lines, from point to point destinations. Google maps has to go by how the roads lay. So I'm 'guessing' this could be adding extra miles to the destination.
I am talking about getting the Longitude & Latitude data from Google Maps and Earth (not directions). They spit out different data. I am trying to find out why. I think Google Earth wants people to upgrade to a licensed verison for accurate inf
