gpx2ipod is Mac-based paperless caching for people who own an iPod but not a PDA.
Batch-converts a pile of .gpx files to plain text for use with the iPod's "Notes" feature.
Super-fast -- cut your geocaching prep time to a few minutes.
gpx2ipod handles both individual and Pocket Query (multiple-cache).gpx files.
Cache files will display alphabetically on the iPod for easy access in the field.
gpx2ipod can inject generated text files directly into your iPod (most users) or into a local "output" folder (you might not have an iPod but might still want the text files for other purposes).
gpx2ipod is a Terminal application (shell script), but can be run painlessly with a double-click -- no shell experience required.
gpx2ipod is available either with or without the gpsbabel command-line binary bundled. gpsbabel is licenced under the GPL, and thus so is gpx2ipod.
What's new in gpx2ipod
Version 1.3: Now retains character formatting for international character sets. Default is UTF-8, but any character set supported by gpsbabel can be selected in preferences. Tested against Swedish .gpx samples (see GCY7XZ-Swedish_chars.gpx in Samples folder). Many thanks to Bengt BŠverman for excellent contributions on this feature.
