Google Earth KMZ file??
#1
I use Sportstracklive on my Google Android phone to log my rides which i then upload to the site, and have just discovered that i can download a Google Earth KMZ file.

Anyone know what i can do with this? I am guessing it's just to overlay the route onto Google Earth, but can i do anything else with it, like upload it to my phone and then follow the route?

If not dose anyone know of any Android apps that would allow me to do this?

a KMZ is a zipped KML.  You canconvert it @ gpsvisualizer.com to gpx and others.
Don't know about following the route live, as I've seen others struggle with this before.

Probably yes as I don't have time to really learn stuff, or the capacity to remember it if I do... or maybe it's just sh*t.
