with your help, i solved most of my problems, but here is another one - i guess, a smaller issue...

I managed to get Google earth layer, but when I add my GPS gpx files, are all hidden under the Google map... How to put them onto Google Earth layer?

thank you in advance (and sorry for being a dumbass)

I am guessing the GPS gpx file gets added as a point layer.

  1. Make sure Layers panel is on. View | Panels | Check box for panels
  2. If just your Google layer and GPS layer are added, you should see the Google layer above and GPS layer below. Click on the GPS layer, hold, drag and drop above the Google layer.

You should be able to see the GPS points on Google layer.
