    Google has recently decided to no longer give access to its services to the famous app Google Earth for older iOs versions [redacted] leading to many owners of old iOs devices (like me) not being able to run Google Earth on their device anymore.
    I have an iPad 1 running iOs 5.1.1 and though it is ten years old and in many ways outdated, it still is really helpful to me. I use it mostly for google maps and google Earth apps. I used to prepare some maps with Google My Maps and export them in KMZ / KML file formats and open it with Google Earth.. I occasionally do deliveries to help out my company and this system used to be very efficient.
    Now my question is as follows : is there a workaround to allow Google Earth to run again on my iPad ?
    Thank you in advance – looking forward to read you !

    Well.. I mean by 'workaround' a way that could make the app usable again.

    I believe that you need iOS 12 or later to use Google Earth.

    If Google is no longer giving access to Google Earth by older/outdated devices, you will not be able to make it work on the older/outdated device.

    What about another app other than G Earth that can import KMZ or KML data files and provide location too, and running on iOs 5.1.1. Any idea of any such app existing ?

    I would not think that an iPad gen three would cost you too much !
