Google Maps to Garmin Connect


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


This is something that I have been struggling with for a few days now. We have a race coming up and it's self-navigating.


The map was sent to us and it opens up in Google Maps. So far none of us have been able to properly convert it to .gpx so that one can upload it to Garmin Connect and save it as a course.


The map is made up of 6 stages, and I get the feeling that you have to save each stage as a course, instead of having all the stages as 1 course.


Any ideas on how to get this done?

What format was it sent to you in? Google Earth KMZ or KML?

You can use a free program like QGIS. Otherwise the old Garmin basecamp can do it.
Otherwise Strava is actually quite a hidden GIS gem, you can split and save routes as GPX files.
