It would be great if when a GPS track is loaded, you can display it on google maps using a semi transparent line above the map. Google maps API provides a way to do
this, you just need to give an array of coordinates.
Here is an example :
The same could be done also for pictures (after sorting the currently
selected picture according to exif time link them by a blue line on the map)
Since few days, kml has been added to the google maps api and can display tracks, I added a kml export functionality to gpssync plugin and it can display a track taken from a GPX file (the best is to take the one you used to corelate the picture) when exported.
Note that it doesn't link pictures between them, only translate a gpx file, so, once you've corelate your picture, dont trash the GPX file.
you can check the bug #139793 or see the result at
