my GPS should have the track from the entire day. never tried to download to Google Maps, how do you go about it?
On a garmin if you connect it via GPS to your PC it should get mounted as a USB drive. Inside there should be a folder called Garmin and inside that a GPX folder. The GPX files inside can be opened with google earth. Since I only had my GPS on for part of the trip, I used Google Earth to create a path and then saved it to a kml file. Then imported that to my places in google maps. Probably a much simpler way but, I hadn't tried any of that before yesterday.

*Edit* I just tried and you can upload GPX files directly to google maps. Go to maps, select my places, new map, and hit the import link. *edit*

The part I wasn't sure I had correct was the end. I was not sure if I had the track ending at the right spot.
