Displaying Garmin 750 Tracks on a World Map

Sorry if this has been covered before, but I can’t find anything specific to what I am trying to do.

I have saved the ‘tracks’ from my Garmin 750 GPS onto my computer (via SD card), and I would like to somehow see these tracks on a world map?
The ‘user data’ file from the Garmin 750 has a “.adm” extension, which doesn’t seem to be recognised by Google maps, or even an older version of Garmin’s Mapsource, which I had loaded to interface with my previous Garmin 276C GPS. (The Mapsource program appears to only recognizes files with the following extensions: .gdb .mps .gpx .loc )

Does anyone know how I can view these tracks?

Thanks

Burls

Have you tried GPSBabel or GPS Utility software to convert adm files into kml for Google Earth ?

CaptnPete,

Thanks for the leads, it looks like GPS utility will do the trick. The free version has a limit to how many track points, waypoints, etc can be processed, so I could only export a portion of my tracks into a format that Google Earth can display, but what has transferred looks good.

Regards

Burls
