    Mapsource writes gpx, then calls earth s copy of gpsbabel to convert the gpx to kml to give to earth. If you pass gpx to earth, earth calls gpsbabel to convert

      Mapsource writes gpx, then calls earth's copy of gpsbabel to convert the
      gpx to kml to give to earth.

      If you pass gpx to earth, earth calls gpsbabel to convert to kml.

      Rename earth's gpsbabel.exe and repeat your experiment.
