The way to link the Google Earth and your trekking data.

If you have a Garmin GPS and MapSource, you can see your trekking data in Google Earth. The MapSource has this function menu in toolbar.

The way to confirm this function is as following.
Open the Mapsource
-> Select "View" in toolbar and click it
-> You will find the menu "View in GoogleEarth ..." and check it
-> If you are not installed "Google Earth" in your computer yet, the system will introduce the installation of the software.
-> After you have installed the Google Earth, I recommend that you should check some suitable layers.
-> The layers-table is in the left hand side lower part of Google Earth window. My recommendation about the layers you should check are Roads, Borders and Labels, Traffic, Geographic Features in the Places of Interest, Transportation.

The way to link the Google Earth and your trekking data.
My way is as following,
Connect the PC and Garmin GPS(Ex. eTrex Vista HCx) with USB cable.
-> Click a "Receive from device" icon of MapSource, and power on your GPS.
-> The small window of "Receive From Device" will find your device easily.
-> Click a "Receive" button. Data transfer will be started.
-> After finishing the data transfer, click a "OK" button.On this procedure, the necessary data is a track data. Click a Tracks tab, and find a necessity ACTIVE LOG number from the table. Next, to keep the necessity data and delete the un-necessary ACTIVE LOG from this table.
-> From MapSource, please select "View" in toolbar and click it -> You will find the menu "View in GoogleEarth ..." and check it
-> The trekking data will be transferred to Google Earth.
-> Finally, you can see your trekking data from Google Earth.
