Yes. Export file from unit to SD Card using .gpx file extension. Place card in computer slot.
Go to
GPSVisualizer .
In the gray box, at the top, click the 'bullet' for "Google Earth KML"
Where File #1 is, click on "Browse" and locate the card slot, folder, file where the .gpx file was exported. Double click it.
Then click "Convert" in the green box. When completed, it will open another page and your file is converted. I then save the file as 'Save as" and rename it to my liking and Save it.
Open Google Earth (Pro), click File, etc. and go from there.

This may sound complicated but isn't.

FYI,
Google Earth can open the GPX directly.
