I tested the GPS logging feature, which works quite well. There are two ways to activate the logger. The first way is to just hit the QUICK MENU button and scroll down to the menu that says <<GPS LOGGER ONLY>>. It will confirm that you really want to do this and then activate. When you use this mode, all radio functions are turned off. The second method is to use the regular MENU button, go to the GPS menu and then turn GPS LOGGER to ON. This method allows you to use the radio while logging. I tossed it in my Jeep and went for a ride to test it out. To deactivate the GPS logging, you go back into the MENU and turn GPS LOGGER to OFF.
The log is saved on the microSD Card in the GPS folder. The file is in standard NMEA format. I had no problem converting the log file using GPS Babel software to Google Earth's KML format and importing it into Google Earth.
Here's a screenshot of the logger information in Google Earth:
