Hey
I will get Garmin Nuvi 1450 to examine. I need to find journey routes.
The release date of the device is year 2009 .

I was reading that from some older garmin devices I can get GPX files, which can be readable by Google Earth but are there any other forensic tools which could be helpful in extracting infos from GPS (beside UFED cuz I dont have licence) ?

Hi Thomas,

With the older Garmin sat navs it was easy to extract the GPX file using FTK or Encase.

Once you have extracted a GPX file a lot can be done with Google Earth.

I used to do this fairly often.

I put a video on Youtube back in 2010.

Do bear in mind that you should do tests at the location and if possible the seized device. Tall buildings can cause horrible reflections which can lead to false or inaccurate data.

Thanks ludlowboy for your answer.

So there is a chance that the device garmin nuvi will be readable in google earth.
I will check this in few weeks.

If you use FTK imager you should be able to extract GPX file. You have to turn device on to image it. You can stop it updating positions by using covering device with metal container. Only two files change if you image it this way.
