Google Earth for iPhone: How to Disable Autotilt

Posted October 27, 2008 by Rob Rogers in Google

Google Earth uses iPhone’s accelerometer to tilt the screen from an overhead view to ground level view. While this is pretty cool, there are times when it becomes quite annoying. Here’s how to disable Autotilt so that Google Earth doesn’t take off on its own if you’re walking around or trying to hand your iPhone to your friend.

1. Open Google Earth.

2. In the lower right corner, tap on the i with the circle around it to bring up the Options screen.

3. Under Settings, tap on the Autotilt setting so that it changes from ON to OFF.

4. Tap Done at the top of the screen.
