Hello Shep. Patrick in Lake Havasu here. I am having the same X problem. Can you give me a bit more detail on your GE fix?.....
Had nothing to do with your 'bridge'. It was GE. I got on their help section, then cleared all overlays and the X disappeared. Downloaded the new PP and all is fine

How reliable is the info in the prospectors pack?
IE if it show no claim is it safe to prospect in that spot or if further research needed?

I don't know if the version I'm using is Rod's newest. This may have already been fixed.

I just checked your newest kml and kmz versions (2010). Land status has &reaspect=false added to the end of the URL, but the active (and other) mining claims links don't.
Yep its fixed
Zoom in close enough with land status (called BLM lands) and active claims turned on, and you'll see the quarter sections indicating active claims don't line up. Add &reaspect=false and they do.
Thanks again for putting this together.

I want to thank you for your fix,it is spot
on and worked like a charm.
I contacted Rod a few days before,because I was
concerned that the guys relying on the coords taken
from the map could get into trouble. The claim
boundaries were several hundred feet off from true
location North to South.
Also the sections were a thousand feet short North
to South. I suggest that anyone with the version before
your fix do as you say. It is real simple and quick to
do and may keep someone from taking a shot at you.
Do the same fix with the township and range section
thingy. I tried it against known surveyed corners and
claims. It took about 10 seconds to know it was out of
kilter with known survey points on the ground.
My surveying is a lot better than my computer skills.
So thank you very much for the fix and computer lesson.

Again, thanks for the feedback and calling this out, I've corrected it, re-uploaded the files. Its good to see others getting into this stuff on this level.

Do you know if there is any way to cache a bunch of data so you can use it offline like when navigating in the field?

I'd like to attempt to clarify what the Prospectors Power Pack is and is not.
It's not a program, Google Earth is the program.
Think of the Power Pack as a bridge, it connects you across the Internet to the island of BLM records. The kml and kmz files that make it work are the steel and concrete, the bridge itself. The kml version of the bridge is for all vehicles, the kmz trucks only, however there is no difference in the end destination.
It's impossible for me to act as techical support if it works on one of your computers but not the other, too many variables. Also the BLM does not provide data for all of the US, neither you nor I can change that.
Shep, did you get it working?
Another question from someone still in the fog..... Each time we connect to the BLM records, are they up to date? How often are they updated? Thanks again for your efforts Rod.
