Click save Close google earth Open GPSbable Input file wants to be of format “google Earth (Keyhole) Markup Language”. Output format wants to be “GPX XML” format.
In translation Options make sure that only “routes” is ticked.

Tick “transform” and in the drop down box select “tracks -> routes” and tick the “delete” box.
Click file name in input and select the google earth file that you just made.
