I went back and looked at it. It is in the tool bar under view.

Well, if you want to see your data in Google Earth, you have to have it installed. If you have it installed, and are trying to see your data with it, and are getting a message that you need to install it... Then uninstall it and reinstall it and see if that clears things up.

This might go along with what the OP is asking but is there a way to have google earth over layed on the base camp screen?

Not GE in BaseCamp, but you can call GE from BaseCamp and have it "Show Selected Objects".  IE you can select a track or waypoints and have them show up in GE.

You can have basically the same thing as Google Earth in BaseCamp using BirdsEye imagery. However, you need to have a GPS that is compatible with Birdseye and connect it to your computer while running Basecamp (see list of compatible devices here: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=70144#productTab). There is no charge to download Birdseye and use it in Basecamp, but you need a subscription to transfer it to your GPS.

Here's a screenshot of City Navigator on top of BirdsEye in Basecamp
