You can see they look almost IDENTICAL!  Thanks to Dexter Industries' founder, John Cole, I know how to do this!  You can too!  John is working on a special guide on how to import his GPS's data into Google Earth!


P.S.  You can download the Google Earth path RIGHT HERE!  (I left out where I live for security reasons ;) ): GPS map

(To use it, just open it, go to "File>Save As..." and save it as "GPS map.kml"  Then open it, and Google Earth should automatically open.  When it does, you should see a little spec of red over near the west coast of the US, that's the path.  If you have any questions, comment about it, I will get back to you ASAP)


  1. excellent stuff man. The Google map part really adds value to this new sensor!
