GPS Connect 0.2
GPS Connect is a freeware program for Mac OS X which offers connectivity to Garmin GPS receivers. The intended use is to backup waypoints from the GPS to your computer. Downloaded waypoints may be saved in a native file format or exported to a variety of other formats such as tab-delimited, comma-separated, or Terrabrowser format. The program also supports upload of waypoints to the GPS receiver, although for this beta version, only one waypoint may be uploaded at a time.
The NMEA protocol is also supported and allows the user to view real time data from the GPS including latitude, longitude, elevation, direction of travel, and speed. The travel direction is shown on a compass rose and the program will optionally use Text to Speech to update you on your progress.
This is beta level software and has not been extensively tested. We need your help testing this program with GPS receivers! If your GPS receiver model and software version number doesn't appear on the list of tested receivers below, please send us an email and let us know what works and what doesn't work.
