    If you already have a map program on your computer, such as memory map, then it is possible to import the GPS waypoints. There are probably other ways but I am not sure of them.

    Yes, entirely possible. Multiple ways of doing it. Do have Garmin Mapsource or Basecamp installed on your computer? Other ways to do it if you don't.

    you can view it on google earth. when you interface it. open google earth go to tools select gps tick the boxes you want click import and your done. i find it handy for casing out clearings.

    When you save tracks and/or waypoints on your Garmin, they are stored in 'gpx' files. When you connect your GPS to your computer, your GPS should appear in 'My Computer' as a new USB drive (or two separate USB drives if your GPS has a microSD card as well as built in storage).

    Inside each of those drives, you should find a 'Garmin\GPX' folder. In that folder you should see a bunch of those GPX files. Those are what contain your tracks and waypoints. They are usually named with the date and time that they were created, so that should help narrow down which GPX file relates to any given trip/hunt. A bit of trial and error may be required to find the correct file.

    Open the GPX file(s) in Google Earth to view.
