So, I have to use the raw track data with the time stamps?  And I have to have a track point where the picture was taken? And a waypoint?

I am wondering if I can use the raw track data, a waypoint that I create in Mapsource, and any old picture I like to and then have it show up in GE.

OR, do I H....A.....V.....E.... to follow the instructions and have the camera synced to the GPS

How much more fun can I have with this 60CSX!!!

MichaelJ, The point of syncing raw track data is to coordinate times.  You wouldn't have a valid time setting on a track you CREATED in MapSource.

With Geosetter you can tag to waypoints.  No time stamp required.  I use it with a film camera and waypoints I manually record in the field.

Ok, I'll get that program you suggested.  Thanks again for the help!

Naw.  Michigander.

Wow!  That program is a fun bunch of screens.  Will probably take me a year to figure it out.  Hell, I just figured out how to get certain maps into my GPSr!

Thanks for the help.  I really appreciate it.
