Well now …Feb 5, 2017 at 8:52 pm #3448977
Since moving from a PC to a Mac I’ve been unable to create trip profiles – for planning or for history.
In Mike M’s recent post https://backpackinglight.com/forums/topic/training-thread-goals-updates-questions-etc/page/4/#post-3447591 he showed this –
- How do you create and import a track to the google map shown above?
- What was used to create the profile?
Can anyone (Mike) give a brief summary of the process. I’m very jealous.Feb 5, 2017 at 9:59 pm #3449000

For Google Earth Pro it’s very easy. Draw the route, right click on it, select “show elevation profile” and it pops up below the map.Feb 5, 2017 at 10:43 pm #3449008
Well, free is way better than $400. Obviously I wasn’t keeping up.
GooglePro is now installed, and the learning curve begins.
Thank you.Feb 6, 2017 at 5:59 am #3449020
Caltopo does that too and snaps to most existing trails which makes drawing routes really easy. Free or cheap ($10/year allows you to save more maps and export maps larger than letter size.
