Google Earth, .kmz logfile and waypoints


Is there any way to see Auto mission waypoints and Home position in Google Earth? In GE i can see waypoints option line and checkbox next to log and planes, but there's no data. I also checked .kml file inside kmz and there's nothing in the end where waypoints seems to be. Waypoint coordinates are in the flash log but not in the kmz.

It would be nice to look logs and compare flighpaths after RTL and Auto mission if there is reference.

  • I second this request, how do you view waypoints alongside the kmz/kml file in Google Earth. It would be good to be able to load the waypoint text file into Google Earth, to compare the waypoints with the actual mission. 

    I know you can replay the mission in the mission planner, but it would be good to see them in Google earth. I tried using the extract waypoints option from the mission planner, but that just creates a waypoint text file, which i have already from saving my waypoint mission...Any help gratefully appreciated!
