The EarthNC team is pleased to announce TakItWithMe™ Beta (www.takitwithme.com) a new service for uploading Google My Maps and Google Earth geo content to Garmin and other handheld devices. Anyone familiar with using Google Maps or Google Earth can transfer online map content including points, routes, geo search results, and Google Earth files to their Garmin GPS device of choice with the simple click of a button.
TakeItWithMe is a free service and supports most Garmin hand-held devices by leveraging the newly announced Garmin Communicator API. Because the Communicator API is currently limited to Internet Explorer and Firefox on Windows, TakItWithMe also supports online map conversion to the GPX format – compatible with a wide range of GPS software and devices across operating systems.
To get an idea of the wide range of My Maps available, please visit our Suggested My Maps Forum.
We’ve put together a demo video showing TakItWithMe in action. Watch as we search real estate in Google Maps, create our own Google My Map of the result, and send it to our GPS for use while house hunting.
