How to open track/route created in Google Earth?

Postby trdi » Thu May 27, 2010 9:29 pm

Hi!
Few days ago i purchase PathAway for Symbian and I use it on my Nokia N78. Everything is OK, but I don´t know how to use track that I create in GE.

Here is that track:
http://rapidshare.com/files/392178917/d ... a.kml.html

I save it on SD card in PathAway folder. When I open PathAway on Nokia I go to Data - Tracks - Import - Memory card - select that route - then I have option to chose - C:\data\PathAway, D:\PathAway, E:\PathAway - I have try with all options! It looks like it will open something, but its not.

This option is wery important to me, can you please explain me whar should I do to use this track on PathAway?

Thanx!

Hi,
I tried your track. For import, it's structure is slightly different then PathAway is expecting. PathAway looks for tracks and routes inside a <folder> command. We will look into adding the capabilities to support a kml such as yours.

Note: If you do an Export to KML you can see the structure of the kml file that PathAway uses.

Do you have any suggestion how to create track/route in GE so it can be opened and functional in PathAway? And do you know when it will be implement in PathAway that option so it will be possible to open that kind of file?

That option is very important to me, and I appeal for fast solution.

I tried to solve this problem by compare kml & gpx files after export them from PathAway, but I didnt manage to do anything.

Is there any way to create track in Google Earth and convert it to work in PathAway? I use topographic maps with GE so GE is only program for me to work with.

Best regards

And still no answer??

On last MTB ride ( 140km ) i draw a route directley on topographic map in PhotoShop, and then convert it with Map Tool. I opened it in PathAway on mobile phon, and follow that route. It is not routable, so I must check from time to time am I on correct path.

Still... I am waiting for answer and solution for this issue.

We have added the compatibily to import Google Earth drawn lines. (They are imported as Tracks). They will be available in the next build. (probably some time next week)

Meantime, by adding the "Folder" to the lines. It should have worked. If you send me the .kml file, I'll have a look at it to see what the problem is.

Hi,
Thank you for adding this option, I believe that I am not the only one that use it.

I will wait that new build with temptation! .kml file for example is in my first post, but I will wait new build, and then try with new track from Google Earth.

Thanx!

Thanx!

A pre-release build has been posted at http://pathaway.com/prerelease5/

Draw a line in Google Earth. Save as a KML file. Import the KML file into PathAway as a Track.

Sorry, Symbian pre-release builds must be locked to an IMEI. To do this, you'll need to join our beta testers program by filling in the form by clicking HERE.

If you're already a member, the pre-release build can be downloaded at http://pathaway.com/prerelease5/symbian.

Hi trdi,

I managed to load tracks...

1. I converted your kml to gpx with GPSBabel
2. I copied gpx file to mem card (nokia n95)
3. Options/Data/Tracks/Options/Import select GPX file - in Pathaway

Importing was a little bit long, phone hanged a little but imported all 15 parts.

Pozdrav,
Aleksandar :)
