For a long time now I have been converting google map journeys into a GPX format using a gpx converted GPXvisualizer,com This is to get my planned route into Garmin Basecamp. and then onto my GPS Garmin 660 I use google maps (NOT Google My Maps) simply because it has street view, this doesn't appear in Google 'My maps.' Street view is a fantastic tool for planning any roads or even off road trip for a motor biker or sidecar user. Using Street view you can actually eyeball the actual road, its surface and the surrounding areas. Invaluable for a biker etc. This month this software, GPXvisualizer.com, has now stopped as freeware unless you get a API. ( no idea what these are) GPXvisualizer does put onto their web site information on how to get this API either free of as paid for API ( even that becomes complicated for anyone not into computing). Following the instruction that GPXVisual gives ends up in pages which are not explained in their information , typical of software writers I find, they all think you are a computer wizard. There is another way to tranfer maps into Garmin Basecamp and that is using Google My maps . This is to plan the route in My Maps and then convert to a KLM file. This can then be transferred to Garmin basecamp. But there is no Street view in My Maps. If anyone uses GPXvisualizer converter and has managed to get the API would they kindly send me details which would lead me through the maze of getting the required API. If you have never used Google street view give it a try, makes planning a trip really easy.
