Wondering if anyone knows why I can't download tracks from my Garmin eTrex Vista H GPS to Google Earth. I'm able to download waypoints and they show perfectly but when I try to import tracks it says none found. There is another great tool that I found that does a similar thing called Expert GPS (it sells for $80 or so).

This is a track that shows up in Google Earth using the Expert GPS software:

Try moving the file from your garmin to your computers hard drive and then importing into google earth.

Never used to work right of the unit for me but no problems from the hard drive. The file(s) I had to transfer were .gpx files and I assume yours would be the same.

Edit -> If i recall you can drag your .gpx file from windows explorer into google earth as well.
