    Hi can anyone help. Can you convert/import your favorites (mapsettings) into Google earth positions?

    Many thanks

    Search for a tool "PoiEdit".

    As bmwdriver says, the POI Edit program will do the trick.
    POI Edit can be used to view your POI or favorites with Google Earth. Simply double click on one of the favorites and the map will appear with that location. If Google Earth is not installed, it will still automatically load a map with that marked location, using mapquest maps online.

    Alternatively, POI Edit can be used to find the latitude and longitude of each of your favorites. Then in Google Earth, you can search for these locations by entering Latitude, Longitude in decimal format.
    For eg: 37 23 17.12 N, 121 07 08.19 W
