- KMZ (read)
- GPX 1.1 (read and write)
- GPX 1.0 (read)

Open a supported file format (KML, KMZ, GPX, CSV, OVL, NMEA (GPS data), ASC (TomTom), ITN (TomTom), PTH (MagicMaps), BCR Map&Guide), PLT (OziExplorer) Geocaching and OSM (Openstreetmap)) and see your tracks and waypoints in the KML Manager. In the next step you can transform the selected waypoints or tracks into a different fileformat. You can export the whole data into a single KML file by choosing the menu entry 'File - Save (Google Earth' or you can just export a part of your data into KML, GPX, CSV, ASC (TomTom), ITN (TomTom), OV2 (TomTom), OVL, Nokia Maps POI or XML. If your file contains waypoints you will find the data in the 'Placemark' view. You can select only that data you want to export into your preferred file format. If your file contains tracks or routes you will find the data in the 'Linestring' view. You need to select that track you want to export. You can only export one track at the same time. After selecting your waypoints or your tracks, you have to click at the 'Export' button and a list of all supported file formats will appear. In the 'Placemark' view it is also possible to combine your selected waypoints to a new track. Hit the button 'Append linestring' and you will find a new track in the 'Linestring' view.
KML Manager and TomTom OV2 file format
The KML Manager supports creating POIs (OV2) for TomTom. I am using the TomTom One XL. I create my POIs for TomTom with the help of Google Earth. You just have to set some Placemarks in Google Earth and save the data as KML or KMZ file. In the next step you can export an OV2 file for TomTom. Additionally to the exported OV2 file you will find also a *.bpm file with the same name as you OV2 file. You have to copy the OV2 file and the *.bmp file to your TomTom.
Installation and technical requirements
Download the KML Manager to your local PC and unzip the file into a directory of your choice. You will find the setup files. Just double click at one of the setup files and the installation will start. If you want to remove the KML Manager from your system, you have to go to the system settings and choose the option 'Software'. You will find an entry for the KML Manager. The KML Manager was tested at Windows XP and Windows 2000. The software requires DotNet 2.0 framework. During the setup all additional requirements are checked and will be downloaded and installed.
