Importing Google Latitude KML files

Google Latitude and some other Google Apps use a special KML format that is not natively supported by myTracks. But I have developed a script that can parse and import these files. To use this script please follow these steps:

  • Load myTracks Script Installer
  • Extract the ZIP file (in case that didn't happen automatically) and start "myTracks Script Installer".
  • Check the install box next to "Import from Google Latitude".
  • Click the install button.
  • Restart myTracks.
  • Select "Import KML files from Google Latitude" from the Tools menu.
  • Select the KML file.
  • The import will take some time because the AppleScript interface of myTracks is used and AppleScript is not that fast ;-)

This script will only work with Mac OS X 10.8 or later.

myTracks is available for iPhone and iPad on the App Store:
