GPSBabel 1.3.5 released

2008-05-05 22:31Happy Cinco de Mayo!On this day, we put down our Coronas and deliver the latest round of fixes and enhancements to succeed GPSBabel 1.3.4. In a burst of creativity, we named it "GPSBabel 1.3.5". (Maybe we put the Coronas down too soon...)
This is an evolutionary release that adds support for several new GPS types, adds features, and of course, fixes problems.

What is GPSBabel?

GPSBabel converts waypoints, tracks, and routes between popular GPS receivers and mapping programs. It also has powerful manipulation tools for such data.

By flattening the Tower of Babel that the authors of various programs for manipulating GPS data have imposed upon us, it returns to us the ability to freely move our own waypoint data between the programs and hardware we choose to use.

It contains extensive data manipulation abilities making it a convenient for server-side processing or as the backend for other tools.

It does not convert, transfer, send, or manipulate maps. We process data that may (or may not be) placed on a map, such as waypoints, tracks, and routes.

Does it run on my computer?

Almost certainly. GPSBabel runs on Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, and Vista plus POSIX OSes such as Linux, UnixWare, OpenServer, Solaris, FreeBSD, and OSX.
