Default How do CTers map their tracks on Google Earth?

I have a Garmin CSX 62, and I know how to export .gpx files.

Is there software I need to buy?

Thanks!

In Basecamp (or Mapsource), go to View > Google Earth

This will show your tracks/waypoints in Google Earth.

Cool, thanks!

And then you can save it somehow, or just do a screen capture?

File -> save -> save image

That's to get the image as a jpeg. You can also save your places to keep a record of the various tracks too.

I don't use a GPS unit per se, but I run 'Everytrail' on my Android phone. Just use the tracking feature, then upload to my Everytrail.com account when back online. Then it allows me to export to GPX or Google earth's KMZ format. Easy, cheap and works ... just have to make sure everytrail runs on the SD card or it consumes too much memory

I don't have a smart phone, unfortunately..

One last thing, how do I get rid of the annoying white circles?
