GPS Utility is an easy-to-use application that provides management and
manipulation of GPS information. You can use it
to transfer data to/from a GPS receiver and store the data in PC files
in one of several text formats.
The program converts between different map datums and many coordinate formats
(Lat/Long, UTM/UPS, country grids etc.). Information can be filtered in various ways
and waypoints sorted according to specified criteria.
Route and track statistics are available and can be transferred into
other programs for analysis (i.e. spreadsheet programs).
By using a scanned or digital bitmap you can digitize waypoints, routes and tracks.
You can plot your GPS information as a map and add map annotations
in text or image form.
GPS Utility can also be set to gather the current position at regular
time intervals and to show the position on a moving map display.
An interface monitor is available for diagnostic purposes such as
logging NMEA sentences. You can also show the current position, time, speed, course on the
GPS Utility is particularly useful for editing and splicing together track and
route segments. You can use it to convert tracks into a route and set of waypoints or
convert Routes into tracks.
Search patterns can be generated in either track or route/waypoint forms.
Other tools allow you to analyse and average the GPS information. Routes may be exported
as Route cards.
GPS Utility supports many import/export file formats. This makes it easy to transfer data to and
from other GPS and CAD/CAM applications. All data is kept in a single file allowing you to
select particular subsets for uploading to the GPS or for generating or copying into other files.
GPS Utility runs on Win95, Win98, Win NT, WinME, Win2000 and WinXP operatating systems. There
is also an older version which runs on Win3.1. You can use the Freeware version which has limited
capacity (numbers of waypoints/trackpoints) or you can register and obtain the shareware
version which can handle more waypoints/trackpoints. A number of Special
Editions are also available use with some third party products.
