Columbus (was ColumbusViewer) is an OS X application to manage tracks produced by the Columbus V-900 GPS Logger and by other GPS Logger supporting the GPX format, such as the Holux M-241.

Very good and easy-to-use tool to manage GPS data from the Columbus V-900. You can use different maps and see statistics about your trip. And it's free!

Really nice utility if you have a Columbus 900 GPS Logger. I have one and I had to do many conversions before just to use the tracks recorded on a map. Now, with Columbus Viewer, I just load the original files from the logger and I can see the track on a map, elevation data and speed in a graph with some compiled info. Really nice and free.

I am in no way affiliated to Columbus or to this software, but I do recommend both of them if you are a Mac user that likes outdoor sports.

By the way, does this software support the new Columbus 990 or the simpler 800/800+? I suppose so, because for what I have seen the logger file format is the same, but I just wanted to ask in case the programmer knows for sure or is willing to look into it and say so in his software.


My pleasure and keep up the good job you are doing.

About the 990/800/800+ I don't have a unit of any of them, so I can't help you with that. I just stated it because I thought their file format has to be very similar or exactly the same. I was planning to get one V800+ on eBay, but before doing it I wanted to know if Columbus supported them. I hope so.
