I have recently uploaded two walks on Wikiloc, these are trails I plotted on Geolives and downloaded to my gps and found when walking these routes were very accurate but on Wikiloc and Google Earth they seem to be off by 50 to 100 meters,
Does any body have any ideas on this, It may have something to do with datums but I don't know how to set them.
Thanks,
Alan.

Your tracks are probably correct, whereas the image from google are sometimes off. See for example this track: http://www.wikiloc.com/wikiloc/view.do?id=82149
