Download maps for google earth

Does anybody know how I could save the entire map of the us for google maps so I could look at it offline? I use it a lot in the car and I can only look at places I've seen when I was online.

Thanks!

Yep, we really need the whole thing cached, with periodic updates. It'd be worth a terabyte drive to have it usable if the kill switch is flipped.

Oh, I can actually help on this one! You need to be online during the process below, but then you should be able to use it offline. Ok, so open up google earth. Now go to Tools > Options and select Cache. Make the cache size around 2 gigs (2000 mbs) Now just look at the areas you want to access offline and it should cache them. You'd be surprised at how quickly it fills up, so you may want to try saving the cache file and swapping it out. I don't know exactly how to do this, but I've heard that it works.

Yeah, that works, but I want it all without having to look
