I can upload .kml files to my truck stereo. This used in addition to my handheld Garmin would greatly improve my odds at finding caches. I can download .loc and .gpx files via pocket queries. How can I turn these files into something my stereo can understand?

Thanks!

Open the GPX file with Google Earth then File>Save>Save Place As... and chose KML in the Save As Type list.

GPSBabel's KML writer recognizes geocaches and writes special KML for them.
