Sad to see that this is AppStore only now. So without the AppStore existing customers are left behind.

It would be great if this could also translate the .result format produced by Sony Ericsson GPS phones (i.e. the Elm or the Hazel) - somebody already implemented this in Java, but it does not run on the Mac as far as I know…

Finally a simple app for creating KML files from GPS logs. I wonder why nobody wrote this before ... Very well done, thanks!

This software works very well with converting Garmin GPS files to KLM files for Google Earth. I am pleased with the results.

The reason this application exists is that I gifted my mother a Wintec WBT-201 for her birthday. The idea was that she could geocode her photos using Google Earth. Then she said: what if I don't have photos? I just want to see where I went. Thus arrised the need to be able to create plain KML files. Turns out GPSBabel is good at that. All it needed was a decent UI. I hope I was able to provide that to my mother. And I gladly share it with all of you. Please support the GPSBabel project.

I have a Garmin Forerunner 305 which connects to my Mac via USB. I, too, was unable to get anything off of the Garmin with this application. It just says: Bad cmdsend r 0 sz 12 Don't know if it's compatible with my Forerunner, but there doesn't seem to be a list so hard to say.

This doesn't work with OSX 10.4.10 and a Garmin 60Cx. The 60Cx shuts off after using HoudahGPS 1.0 and attempting to download a track to the computer. Did the developer test this app before releasing it as version 1.0? However, Load My Tracks works great! Go here for Load My Tracks: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/20893
