It works great. I just used it. I have location traces collcted for few hours, I will try to enhance this work by enabling reading of corresponding timestamp and get more information from the map file.

Hi This seems to work great but how do i just plot my lat longs rather than join them up into a track. Can this be done?

but I can't plot all the lat long in the Google Earth (path).
Any way to do it? My file looks something like this...I assume it will plot the path in the google earth using this file....any help?

<kml xmlns="">

<LineString id="POINT string">
