Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
To do this, please do the below steps
Install Garmin Mapsource Click here to get it
Reboot your machine
Start your GoogleEarth
Create all your “Placemarks” first. This sets up a point to point connection of your path
Click on File/Save-as/
Open up your web browser to GPSvisualizer.

Browse for your .kmz file, be sure to set output file to .gpx, and click convert button.
Click on your new .gpx file and do a save-as to your computer
Open up GarminMapsource
Open the newly created .gpx file from above step.
Connect up your Garmin GPS to your computer
Click Transfer/send to device.
That then completes the process

I LOST MY Google earth with your recommendations. Are you planning to help me with that problem? Should I write a review on what Happen?
Expert:  Richard replied 2 years ago.
The only thing you had to do with Google Earth in my instructions was open it.
So not sure what you did to lose it but please tell me how you lost it.
