    I have downloaded some waypoint files for paragliding sites in Google Earth.
    They are in .kml format and I would like to convert them to a file readable
    in Garmin Mapsource (.gdb or .mps) in order to upload them to my Garmin
    Etrex Vista.
    I have done this before but have forgotten how to do this ....

    Aftert 2 hours of trial and error I give up .....

    Could somebody from this newsgroup tell me how to proceed ?

    I have GPS Babel.

    Thanks on advance for any help.

    You can try "GPS Utility" (GPSU), which will convert KML files to GDB
    files - see and also upload them to your Etrex Vista.
