GPS Waypoints onto GoogleEarth

Want to put waypoints from your GPS on GoogleEarth?

The feature you want to use is called, “Add a Placemark”, and it looks like a pushpin and rests along the toolbar along the top of the GoogleEarth window.

What you do is, click the placemark anywhere on a GoogleEarth map, then, a window will pop up in which you can edit the fields for the latitude and longitude according to the waypoints you have saved on your GPS.

Note: You will need to choose in your GPS Setup menu the position format for degrees minutes seconds prior to doing this waypoint editing in GoogleEarth.
