I also have to say THANK YOU for this. It is an excellent resource.. You did a great job this combined with your off line program is just amazing.
Okay but i have a confession to make.I dont actually know how to use it. I know the data is there I just dont know how to get it off the google program and into a formate that i can use like a file for my GPS (garmin) or even haw to extract the coordinates so i can look up on a map. (I dont have earth plus, only jsut downloaded earth today).
Basically is there anyway that you can take the kml files and get them in to mapsource or Smelly bikers maps. I am so very sorry if this is a truely stupid question. I am a bit of a noob when it comes to GPS (maps I am good at but these things.. it is a long climb ahead of me). I have read the etnire google earth "how to use" thing and it has not helped. Is GPX the Garmin formate if so why can i see them any ideas
EDIT: NEVER MIND_ I sorted it out.. for the ones like me who could not sort it out. It is a simple case of drag and drop the GPX file to the way points tab (window) of the Mapsource program!!!
Hi All, I am a newbie to GPS/Sat Navs but I have a question. I downloaded Ulrich's POIs and dragged the .gpx file into the waypoints tab in mapsource and then transferred to my up up-to-date nuvi 250. All good at this point.
I checked for the new camping way points and yes they are there but certainly the couple around where I live are in the wrong places. A couple streets for one and one or two miles for another. Have I done something wrong or left out a step. Anybody else found these to be in the wrong spot ? I mean I could move them but I don't know if the campsites in France, spain or others are a little off ?. Plus I don't feel like move thousands of way points.
if the places around Your home are wrong, try to found out if they are in Google Earth also on the wrong place. If "yes", sent me corrected coordinates, if "no", I don't know what You make wrong with Your Nüvi.
Hi Ulrich, thanks again for this fantastic work. I have a little question.
I have downloaded and apply it to my google earth on Windows Vista operating computer. However, I'll take my 9" 4gb eee-pc when i am on the road. and it oparets ubuntu. it has also google earth in it. so, is there any way to apply this files to google earth run on linux(ubuntu)?
