How to Download Bookmark Lists to Google Maps

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am wondering how to download a bookmark list on geocaching.com to google maps so I can plan ahead the best route to tackle the caches. The bookmark list is a series of caches that is part of a geotrail and since I want to do the whole trail I would like to be able to get it into a map to check it out. Keep in mind that while I am fairly computer savvy I am not the best with tech terms and such. Any help would be appreciated.

If you run a Pocket Query from the bookmark list, you can open the GPX file in Google Earth. I don't know of a way to display it in Google Maps, but someone else might come along with a way to do it.

As mentioned, run a Pocket Query from your Bookmark List. You can then preview the PQ in the geocaching maps--not Google Maps, but you might be able to do a screen shot and print it or use your browser's print function.

Would Google Earth do?

If you get it (free) there is a link on the far right of the bookmark list (download Google Earth KML). Once you click on this (at least in Firefox which I use) you get the option to save the file, or open it in Google Earth. I select "Open in Google earth". Google earth will then open up and display your map with the caches in your bookmark list shown by name.
