They won't work. They belong to someone else.

GPS points come in different formats. Which one are you trying to enter? give an example of one and I will convert the format for you and tell you how to do it. Ed

There are 2 commonly used forms of Lat & Long - Deg., Min., Sec. & Decimal.
Google Earth wants Lat & Long in Deg., Min., Sec.

Strikeline has a GPS download that is a group of files "zipped" (compressed together) that has the Google Earth already in .kml & .kmz format that will open directly into Google Earth by clicking on them.

As a consulting engineer I can tell you that numbers are free.....telling you what they mean, well....

As alligator said, download the Kml and Kmz files and open them in google earth.
