MacGPS Pro™ navigation software
MacGPS Pro works with Garmin and Magellan GPS receivers for transferring Waypoints, Routes, Tracklogs, and GPS satellite Almanacs. MacGPS Pro works with almost all brands of GPS receivers for a real-time display of GPS information on a moving map on the Macintosh screen.
It allows import of maps from a wide variety of sources. These maps can be viewed with no GPS receiver connected, or used in real-time as a moving-map display of your current position and velocity.
Supports most Garmin and Magellan handheld and fixed-mount GPS receivers with displays (except those Magellan receivers which have a USB interface) for upload and download of Waypoints (with their Icons), Proximity Waypoints, Routes, Track Logs, and Satellite Almanacs.
All coordinate transfers produce a map on the screen of the data transferred. All are saved in editable, tab-delimited text files, allowing easy data exchange with spreadsheets, databases, text editors, and other mapping programs.
Can collect raw NMEA data to a file, and play back that file as though the GPS receiver were currently connected. Playback can be sped up or slowed down.
Maps can also be used as a background to graphically create, display and edit Waypoints, Routes and Tracklogs.
