Geotiff import for backgrond

If Im being an idiot I apologize but I want to import a geotiff as the background. I have geotiff exported from google satellite image but have to use qgis and Eltima serial splitter to have live position on aerial . Earth doesnt work as it wont come down low enough

If this is already a feature can someone point me to the instructions

It is not currently in the code. It will display a jpg. We’ve shown how a couple of times. There is another thread here that spells it out. It will display any jpg file. If you know what you are doing it will display .png. We used the vrate function of Brian’s to accomplish this. I’m not sure the pixel rate is much more accurate than Google earth as it is built. But may be worth looking into.

Look for the Reference Layers post.
