I have found some spots on Google earth that I can check dates in the past where the water was low,and I can draw the actual creek banks,and return to realtime and the banks show up.The question I have is, how do I transfer the information from Google Earth to My Humminbird 998 ?

Convert the GE Paths to Humminbird Tracks and load that data to HumminbirdPC to get it on a memory card in the Matrix folder that the unit will recognize and upload.

I did a whole lake outline that way to have a reference for my waypoints for a new lake.

With the HBTrackMapper software in the PM I sent a week ago.

The latest version I have is V099, there were 4 versions before that.

The first version I have is HTTrackBuilder

It is on the website I told you about as well as the developer of that software.
You have to join that forum to get access to software downloads.
It is one of several Humminbird Side Imaging forums.

It also can be found by a Google web search, but most hits are in what looks like German or Scandinavian. In the image samples on the search page is one of my maps. Put the title together HBTrackmapper

This is one of the hits when doing a search that has a link to the website:

In particular, see the last video--I think it thoroughly explains what you are looking for.

A very simple way is to download RideLeader by TrailTech. It is free. It will open gpx and Google Earth(kml) files. Save your Google Earth file in kml format instead of kmz format, open that file in RideLeader then save it as a gpx file, then load that file to a memory card using HumminbirdPC. After that you can load it to your Humminbird unit. I have done it many times with no problems.
