I've not been able to send links for the map for some reason, pm me your email and I'll send you an invite. You might need to be signed into google to edit it though.

It has taken some doing, but I've eventually managed to find a way of getting the lat/long out of google's kml files. It is in decimal however, so might need converting before placing into a gps. Can't attach the file here, so will email to Matt and Mart first.

I saw the decimals and ran away, then can be converted though.

Homeport has decimals of a degree as an option in the settings. I guess if you set it to dd.ddd, added the waypoints then went back to dd mm.mmm should work?

I suppose we also need to know whether Google uses WGS84 or ED50 or whatever.

Seems to be on WGS84, same as google earth.

I've added a few bits for Honfleur, lock openings, bridge openings, berthing etc and found a cheap hotel that seems ok and only 50m from the marina.

And I've found a link for the map that works too:

Paris Cruise Google Map

lol If Matt keeps posting the list of additions I can keep a Garmin file updated with them all as waypoints.
