Convert .Kmz Files To .Gdb

Recommended Posts

It's really very simple and quick and ony requires a few clicks with the right software. Can be done easily in under a minute.

You'll need Garmin Base Camp: https://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4435
Download and install it on your computer.

  1. Launch Garmin Base Camp.
  2. Click on "My Collection" on the top of the left side bar.
  3. Now click the menu: File → Import into "My Collection"
  4. Locate and click the KMZ file and click Open.
  5. Make sure the imported KMZ is highlighted and then click the menu: File → Export "The file you imported"
  6. In the window that pops up make sure you click the "Format:" and select GDB.
  7. Then click Export.

I've created a video demonstrating this. It was created on a Mac but on Windows shold be almost identical:
