I didn't test the googlelabs vizualiser but it is possible to vizualise with gps visualizer:
No need to create an account. You just need to copy and paste your data with the right label on the top (name,desc,latitude,longitude...) from excel or open oficce or text file. It is possible to optain a lot of différent output format.

I don't know if this option is simpler or not than direct google.

Here is an exemple. Data recording in the flash memory of a 18f2680 every 10 meters. The data are readen and recorded on the computer with PPP and then vizualesed with gps visualizer.

Can you please confirm the numbers shown in the GPSTABLE file speed column are meters/sec?
Was the vehicle nearly stationary then? I can't think why else these numbers are so small unless they are not meters/sec and represent something else entirely.

The speed is actually in knots, the table shown is just an example table and I think was just done wandering around on foot, and is not related to the small drive that was taken and shown on the map.

Hi Benj
Can you advise me how to add a track point by entering a definite coordinates using an eprom of ECIO and key pad and since the coincidence occurred between the scan points and the reserved points gives an output signal
thak you
