Here's a tool which I wanted long time ago...

TB is able to log a track and also record wpts during the track. Result is two GPX files (which can be correlated by timestamp). And waypoints can have pictures (taken during the track) linked to them.

This tool takes these files as input and creates KMZ package that can be opened in Google Earth, where you can view path and wpts (including images).

Requirements: Java 6 (aka 1.6; it can run on 1.5 but additional jars are needed then). Run with
Code:
java -jar tbkmzmaker.jar
.
How it works:
1. if both wpts and track file are specified, they are merged together
2. resulting GPX file is transformed to KML
3. resulting KML and referenced images are packed into KMZ file

You can customize the output KML by modifying gpx2kml stylesheet inside the jar.

Excellent! Just one problem... When I load my KMZ file on googleearth, and click on the photo link, I can only see the left-hand side of the photo - not the whole image. My photo is 640 x 480. Any ideas why I can't see the whole of the image?

I'll research kmz support in TB, and also check the issue with image display in GE..
