GPSBabel overview

GPSBabel converts waypoints, tracks, and routes from one format to another, whether that format is a common mapping format like Delorme, Streets and Trips, or even a serial upload or download to a GPS unit such as those from Garmin and Magellan.

By flattening the Tower of Babel that the authors of various programs for manipulating GPS data have imposed upon us, GPSBabel returns to us the ability to freely move our own waypoint data between the programs and hardware we choose to use.

The developer (Robert Lipe) is a quality act, and this new version (2 years in the making), with its 196 pages User Guide, is a jewel. With over a 1,000 downloads within a day after its release, i'm obviously not the only one who appreciates the app. Having donated $16, i hope others will be moved to do what they can.

GPSBabel has been part of my 'GPS Apps' folder ever since I got a Mac capable GPS. It does what it says: simple conversion of GPS files between formats. Very handy if you need to get data from a proprietary format into one that you can fiddle with, or, for example, convert to kml to view on Google Earth. The "Babel Fish" of GPS apps : )

GPSBabel works wonders... I've enjoyed using it to visualize waypoints and tracks from my garmin legend c in google earth (with out $ubscribing to google earth plus). GPS babel will allow you grab waypoints tracks and routes off your GPS and save them as .kml (keyhole markup language, works with google earth). Also, will allow you to load waypoints you've added in google earth to your GPS (in googleearth save a marker or folder as a .kml, then import in GPSBabel with output as GPS receiver). A ton of GPS formats are convertable, easy to use, free, and i've had no stability issues. Enjoy! Note: When copying to hdd, be sure to include the unix exe and the app (just copy everything over)

I don't see an email address to submit this comment to MacUpdate, but this is GPSBabel (as it says), but not MacGPSBabel which is what would be of interest to readers of this site. The 1.2.6 Mac version doesn't appear to have been released yet, at least it isn't listed on the GPS Babel site. GPSBabel is UNIX, not Mac.
