If you receive a KML (Keyhole Markup Language) file, you may be puzzled about what exactly it is supposed to do. No program on your Windows computer can open the file and there isn’t a clear sign of its intended use. Well, the KML files are saved from Google Earth and contain geographical data. In other words, these files contain everything from terrain data to points of interest and other pieces of information that are very useful for a GPS device such as a Garmin. Most GPS devices can’t connect to the Internet, so KML files are used to feed them new points of interest, as well as routes and other data.
If your GPS unit doesn’t know what a KML file is and can’t therefore use it, you need to perform a conversion and convert the file to the more common CSV format understood by most devices in use today. KMLCSV Converter is able to convert KML to CSV and vice versa in just a few seconds. Your points of interest will be displayed in Google Maps, on your Garmin device or on Google Earth, depending on where you upload the data to. The program is very responsive and performs its job perfectly. No errors have been encountered in our tests.
