XChange2 Extend for saving KML and KMZ files to Google Earth and other programs.

This is a simple and easy to use program or extension that allows the user to save data from exchange2 and open it in Google Earth or other programs where you can import KML and KMZ files.

Wlk,
Nice work!
How is the data transferred from Xchange2 into your program?
Currently I extract the Track, Find Point and Way Point data directly from the CTX for conversion to a kmz file for use in Google Earth. I find the Xchange2 program very clunky.

Thanks.
Sorry for my bad English, I also use google translator. :O/
Get data from xChange2 - it is very simple - it is a SQLite database. Many programs allow to view data from the file "mldata" in xChange2.
I am now working on an application as xChange2 for OS X users, but there still a lot of work and a lot of fun. I like to do it. :O)
Yes, Xchange2 program very clunky, but none better program. :O(

I hope you understand my "English": o)

I can now view my tracks and such on my mac, change the colors of individual tracks within my collections while using goggle earth. I do have some antiquated windows computers but I like my apple products.
One thing I did notice is that the individual tracks when converted over shows no dates or times that is listed on the original files in exchange2. I can however manually fill in the info for each recorded track.
I have been using the CTX 3030 for a little over three years now and have recorded most of my hunts, just recently started marking my find points and it's nice to have all info available.

Again thank you WLK for sharing this info, I couldn't have done this without your assistance.


Carry on and HH
