    Hey Catfish, hows about some gps definitions. What is KML or .gdp? remember we are neophytes to this stuff, we ain't all sophisticated like you! I like your tutorial by the way.

    I don't have time to hack at it right now, time to goto work, but I'll be idle after while and I'll work on it.

    KML=Google Earth File format, Keyhole Markup Language, .kml, Google Earth can save the place as a .kmz which I think is the same as KML but its a compressed format, ala the Z on the end, but not certain.

    GDB is a format Garmin uses for its GPS to save the user data or import data from mapsource. I don't know what it stands for.

    USR is the format Lowrance uses for its Data files, wether it be saved on the GPS or imported from MapCreate or from GPSBabel.

    GPX is a generic file format, that is actually an XML format, very similar layout to web pages .HTML, Someone will have to help me here as I don't know if a Garmin GPS will read a GPX file. I know the new Lowrance coming out next month will be able to read GPX files and save GPX files.

    I don't have all the answers, but give me enough time to reserch it and I'll find it. I wasn't expecting to have to write a dictionary :lol3.
    Ok enough for now, time to goto work.

    I was working with a 3 mile loop and the number of points needed to keep the resulting line anywhere near the road in the picture or on the topo was excessive. Do you know of a way to just have the clicked points show as a string of dots without the connecting line?

    Not a complaint, just a question. :norton

    Google earth has a Directions feature, just the left click on the starting point, and choose a destination. BUT its prolly not going to be the route you wanted it to follow.

    Glad you got it figured out. You helped me in that you gave me insights on the shortcomings and a couple places I made assumptions.
    Thank You. :clap
