GPS Utility is a lightweight and easy to understand piece of software developed to offer you a simple means of manipulating GPS data, enabling you to add, edit or remove elements from such files.
User-friendly and practical appearance
The first time you run the application, you should do so by using your administrator privileges. GPS Utility's main window is fairly simple and unimpressive, providing you with several menus that thoroughly organize the available functions and tools. Additionally, the program features a ribbon with access to the most popular functions, for instance 'View Waypoint', 'View Trackpoints', 'View Routes', 'Map', 'Units' or 'Lat-Long (DM)', enabling you to use them with just one button click.
Load your file and start editing its contents
GPS Utility lets you load files in several formats, for instance GDS, COR, ADM, HST, CSV, WP, DBF, TXT, XGU, RTU, UPT, MIF, ISR, GXF, FSH and many others, helping you view and edit the information, namely the 'ID', 'Coordinates', 'Symbols' and 'Comments'.
Furthermore, the tools enables you to create new files which you can later upload into your GPS device and use for orientation. To do this, you need to input all the necessary entries, in individual columns, along with their 'ID' and corresponding 'Coordinates' ('Latitude', 'Longitude'), as well as insert a descriptive 'Comment'.
The entry can be 'Centered on Map', or 'Inserted in Route', and afterward the tool can save the resulting file to any of the supported input formats, so you can work with it regardless of your GPS device type or brand.
Aside from supporting files stored locally on your computer, GPS Utility also supports connecting to a device and downloading the information from it to your PC, saving it to any format you want, thus you can later edit it to fulfill your needs.
Useful GPS file editor
To summarize, GPS Utility is an efficient and easy to use program which can successfully assist you in managing, editing and creating GPS-compatible data files, allowing you to be fully in charge of your orientation device.
