Q I spent quite a while trying to figure out how to add and remove tracks in google earTh and finally figured it out.

If you pm me your email I will send you a tip sheet with what I learned yesterday.

I wish I could find a garmin forum. I would like to know how to better record my tracks. And I had one point in each track where the speed was crazy fast. Like 147 mph. Right. I also learned yesterday how to delete points in a track so your time and distance are more representative and accurate.

Good Job've embraced the technology and learned very quickly.:-)

I've been playing with google earth after seeing this post......still like the topo maps better though.....

Nice work!

Thank you! I have to do the topography map. You can't tell from Google Earth, but at one point we are at a much higher elevation walking along a ledge. The topography would demonstrate the difference in heights wouldn't it. I think one trail is directly above another trail, but the two look equal.

I have saved my tracks in google earth, but when I tried to email them to somebody that didn't have google earth, they couldn't open them. How did you save this particular page?

Celeste I used screen capture software to photograph my monitor. I used my editing software to add the words to the image.

Too cool! Thanks!

Just use the prtscr button on your keyboard. It will copy the current screen to your clip board and then you can paste it into any graphic or doc program. Save it and place it on your photo server and WaaaLaaa you have uploaded
