Cythraul's instructions didn't quite work for me because I couldn't copy the URL given by "View in Google Earth", but the following tweak did:

1. Click "Send", not "View in Google Earth"
2. Copy the URL given after "Hi, I'd like to..." and paste it into Notepad or Word
3. If you see a ">" at the end of the URL, delete it. Then add "&output=kml" to the end of the URL
4. Copy the whole URL and paste it into your browser address bar

The downloaded file should be full of GPS points.

Good luck!

Upgraded to Pro in thanks for the fast replies.

I am new to this forum (love the software) and find that whenever I try to search for previous discussions I invariably get the error message:

"The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: [search terms].
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards."

I get these even for pretty detailed searches.

Anyway, no doubt this is due to the phpBB system and nothing to do with Locus, but just for awareness.

Best regards,

Hello, can anyone please advise if there is a way of importing multiple tracks at once from one's SD card.

I have saved a bunch of .gpx tracks in the MyTracks folder on my SD card. When I go Data Manager/Import Data/My Tracks, I can only select one .gpx file at a time. I have dozens of tracks saved so I would like to be able to import them all at once. I am running 1.9.0

Many thanks.
