I have several trails which have their link on Google Earth broken.
When clicking "display track on map" on Google Earth map, then get the error message:

404. That’s an error.
The requested URL /mw-earth-vectordb/dynamic/wikiloc/2/ge/29765506.kmz
was not found on this server. That’s all we know

This is only an example, there are many I've found.
How can this be fixed? Can I fix it myself or should I publish all the broken link here?
I have 450 trails and this could take a lot of time to check it all. As I can see only a small part is broken.

Other broken links:
As I can see, all those links correspond to trails uploaded between 9/2018 and 11/2018. Something went wrong at that time probably.

Best regards,
François Piette

We are working with the Google Earth team to solve this. Thanks for reporting the problem!

Maybe that's interesting for you:
Wikiloc Foren ... Questions ... Connection to Google earth

"Dear Wikilok Team,
could you please give an answer to this important topic.

Many members have selected Wikiloc 10 years ago from a variety of similar geoportals only because of the special feature - the representation of their tracks on Google Earth -.
Many reasons are known:
The worldwide overview of ALL tracks on GE is unbeatable.
The direct exploration in 3D GE mode including flight simulator offers additional possibilities.
For travel planning useful fixed and own POIs / Overlays can be used.

* What should happen with the linking to GE in the future?
* Will Wikiloc realy say goodbye to this unique selling proposition?
* What does that mean for the number of hits on the tracks? How have the access rates to the Wikiloc tracks changed without the access source Google Earth since the separation? "
