LoadMyTracks for Mac

27 March 2019

Convert GPS info into GPX/KML format for Google Earth.

What is LoadMyTracks for Mac

LoadMyTracks is a utility that allows users of the Mac to download track, route, and waypoint information from a variety of GPS receivers fromCanon Garmin, GlobalSat, Magellan, TomTom, Sony, Lowrance, Timex, and turn them into GPX files or KML files (for use with Google Earth).

LoadMyTracks can also send Tracks, Waypoints, and Routes to your Garmin and Magellan GPS devices (support for other manufacturers will be forthcoming)! It will also translate GPX files to KML and convert some existing saved files from certain (Lowrance and Magellan) GPS receivers. Using extensions to GPX 1.1, it will also place cadence, heart rate, and lap information into the GPX files.

LoadMyTracks will also import and export Geocaching information from supported devices and file formats (including LOC for import and GPX for import and export).

What's new in LoadMyTracks

Version 1.5.3:

This release is now available on both the Mac App Store and direct download. Changes since 1.5.0 are only related to bug fixes and sandboxing. If you encounter problems on either the Mac App Store or direct versions, please contact us at our support site.

This version is a major update, including the modernization of much of the interior of the program, along with removing some older supported devices that we can no longer support.

Issues with some Garmin devices

Some of you may have noticed that since 10.13, there are some older Garmin devices (especially those that used Garmin USB) that became unusable. Garmin's own software cannot communicate with them, and no firmware updates are available that fix these problems. Therefore, we cannot claim support for these any longer. This includes the Garmin Edge 305 and the Garmin eTrex Legend C. We have not done anything to remove support for these, so it's possible Garmin or Apple will issue a fix in the future, but we do not expect it (since the problem has been known for over a year).

Changes since 1.5.2
  • Fixed potential crashing bug in Magellan Storage driver

Excellent app for downloading GPX and KML tracks from my Garmin eTrex Vista HCx. I can then load these tracks onto Google Earth, National Geographic TOPO! and TrailRunner. Not affiliated, just a very happy and satisfied customer. Still using v 1.4.5

Indeed the release notes at cluetrust.com say that ver. 1.4 drops support for Tiger (10.4) and adds 64-bit support (for Snow Leopard, 10.6).

Sysadmins, the release notes say "Move to 10.5 only". Shouldn't the system requirements be changed from "10.4"? I tried to follow the link to the developer's site "Clue Trust" to verify for myself, but that link yields a blank macupdate page.

Excellent application, flawless Google Earth import, USB communication works like a charm - it could use a nicer icon and some extra features though (I'd like to be able to determine *which* routes/waypoints/tracks I'd like to download). Tested with a BMW Motorrad Navigator II (manufactured by Garmin, basically it's a modified StreetPilot 2610) and Google Earth 4.0. Keep up the good work, and please don't make the end product expensive when it's ready, I'd like to buy it!

Works with brand new Garmin GPS units (namely the Cx/CSx units) which none of the other programs seem able to do without making me buy a serial cable and a serial->USB adapter(Is this 2006 or 1995?), so bravo on that point. Downloaded 4 routes and about two dozen waypoints very quickly. However- you have zero control over what is uploaded, and for that resaon, a "1" on features. I can understand downloading all the waypoints, but really, why can't we get an option to only download certain routes? 2/5 for ease of use; it'd be nice to see any detected USB devices listed, and one of the routes did not show up in Google Earth or Trailrunner unless others were deleted, which I had to do by hand in a text editor (ugh.) 3/5 on value+stability; seemed stable the two times I used it, and I can't judge value since there is no price point announced.

Excellent, I've spent the whole day trying to muddle through the world of Garmin, just to download and display waypoints from my gps onto my mac. Now, I can even add it to google earth. Doesn't necessarily resolve all the issues, but is a nice simple quick tool. Thanks

Very nice! This is the first piece of software I have found that recognizes my Garmin GPS 60Cx's USB port. I do have a suggestion/request: When I save the tracks as a KML file and open GoogleEarth, the track is white, which makes the track almost invisible. I looked at both LoadMyTracks and GoogleEarth for a preference to change the color of the track, but was not able to select a different color. Am I missing something? Once again, very nice!

i've tried severall other programs, usually for more complex tasks. they also have the ability to download the data this one does. but this is a very nice, easy to use, straight forward app and i love it. i use it almost daily to download my tracks and see what i've been doing on google earth. if i go geocaching and just want to get that data out of the unit, this is the one i use. and i just found out it auto-updates, another cool feature.
