For managing, manipulating and mapping GPS data


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 Position Console.

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.

See some of the things you can do with GPS Utility checkout in the Things to Do page.

If you want to try a GPS receiver without buying one, then why not rent one from GPS Rental.
