You are the third to introduce us to google earth. It's not exactly new anymore.

It is indeed a pretty cool program, Aaron. I hadn't downloaded the program until just a couple of months ago. When I did, I was amazed at what it can do and how smooth it is.

if u use Garmin GPS, u can download & free update to 6.10.2 version of mapsource, they added the new function "View in Google Earth" on the last line of view menu.

http://www.garmin.com/support/mappingsw.jsp

1. open Google earth waiting

2. open mapsource, get track/waypoint/route from GPS or use the GPS file u saved before

3. click view menu, then choose "view in Google earth", mapresource will automatically generated KML file that Google earth supports, as a result, u can see the 3D trail plus topographical picture in mapsource.

very cool, but my Linux OS @ home doesn't support Google earth
