    HF Support for .kmz file attachments

    With the advent of Google Earth it would be nice to be able to attach .kmz file types. kmz is Google Earth file format for gps waypoints and routes. I have a garmin .gdb file of a hike route that I converted to a .kmz file to view in Google Earth but I cannot attach it since it is not one of the allowed file type. In my opinion Google Earth is a fantastic program for hikers to share gps routes.

    I agree, google earth is amazing. Kayakkarl did an excellent google earth map of the pine barrens.

    Agree...Google earth is a great program. Dont need to convert anything to kmz though.
    It reads gpx track files straight from your Garmin.

    After connecting the GPS to my PC I load this file to see my trip overlaid on Google Earth sat imagery.

    G:\Garmin\GPX\Current\Current.gpx

    (Your drive letter may be different from G: )
