I use MapSource to view GPS topo maps, and use the View option 'View in Google Earth'.  That stopped working with GE Pro version 7.3.3, giving an error in MapSource indicating that GE was not installed, when in fact it is.  I can downgrade GE to 7.3.2 to get the link working again, but GE automatically updates, breaking the link.  What alternative GPS mapping programs are out there that link to GE and have functionality equivalent to MapSource?
I have a Garmin Oregon 200 that I recently used on a hiking trip.  The trip odometer seemed to be reading low, and was low in mileage compared to the guide books I have / trail sings.  The overall distance shown on the trip odometer was 7.57 miles for the distance I walked, but when I uploaded the track to Mapsource and looked at the track properties, the total distance shown in Mapsource for that track was 8.7 miles, which is closer to what I believe to be true.  Any ideas about this discrepancy?  I just updated the Oregon software to the most recent version (after the hike) so I don't know what my previous OS version was, or whether the update fixes the problem if there is a problem.
How to remove Basecamp if it is not on the list of installed programs on the Control Panel add-remove program function?  I also have Mapsource installed, and it shows on the list of installed programs.
