I recently discovered how to map out a path on google earth and have it give you the elevation profile and mileage and so on. I'm hoping there's a way to "synch" the path created on my computer with the google earth app on my iphone so I can reference it while out splitting. Has anyone tried this or know how it can be achieved?

I have only put them on my GPS. And it is indeed a cool use of tech.

I think this should help you, seems easy enough.

EarnYorTurns - How do you get el profiles off GoogleEarth? Is this the measure tool set to path or another tool? I thought that only gives milage.

Nice vid Gormley Green. Clear and short.

When you draw a path, right click on it in your places and hit show elevation profile. It's not the ruler tool, it's the path drawing thing.

"My Tracks" for Android will export your path in .kml for Google Earth.

I find hillmap.com a bit easier for plotting than google earth, I use the my tracks app for tracking though, its great!

Favorite use of Google Earth is the sun feature, great for route planning and finding stashes
