Of the best links I've received as feedback from Gabriel, which from Argentina he told us a couple of days ago. Is about GPS Babel, a free-to-use GPL licensed utility that runs on Windows, Linux and Mac.

Ideal for downloading data from one computer and uploading directly to another. For example, it can be downloaded from a Garmin via USB and sent to a Magellan through another port. The same allows doing it with files such as reading from a Magellan SD and sending directly to kml, csv, OSM, etc.

Read and / or write, near 160 format conditions, which I show here the most outstanding 50.

A great solution additionally has filters like remove duplicates, reverse route orientation, simplify points, reorder lists and even have some of its functionality to run online to view on Google Maps or make conversions. I warn you that in gpsvisualizer.com there is much more to see, a great page with practical resources.

Best of all, it is free to use. **Here you can download it GPS Babel**.

hi ... Thank you very much for this link, but I have a problem, pass data from watpoints that I have in excel in extension csv to mapsource, but I have not been able to do it. I would like you to please help me with this ...

Morning

BY TRUE, I MISSING TO COMMENT THAT YOU ALREADY CONVERT WITH THE SOFTWARE BUT IT DOES NOT LOWER THE DATA OF DEPTH, NO TEMPERATURE OR NOTHING BUT. THANK YOU

HOW CAN I PASS MY ROUTE FILES AND WAYPOINTS FROM A HUMMINBIRD TO A * .TXT FILE, AS I NEED TO USE THESE DATA ON A MAP. ALREADY DOWNLOAD THE SOFTWARE YOU RECOMMEND BUT IT DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO CONVERT MY DATA .HWR OR HL TO A .TXT. THANK YOU I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR HELP A LOT. SOCRATES

Hello Gabriel, thank you for the link.

Emilio: Thank you for the information, I had not paid much attention to the console version, it seems that the black screens make us feel that it is DOS, but I see that there is much more there and it runs at a surprising speed.

A greeting.

Although it does not appear in the table you've put, GPSBabel also allows you to convert shapefiles to any of the other GPS file format. Yes, you have to do it through the console because the graphic environment does not support it yet.

Thanks for your comments and I see that the data was useful, I tell you I use it to generate GPX files from my old Etrex and I take it to the GlobalMapper and I keep it in two formats one SHAPEFILE to open it in ARCGIS and KML to use it in GOOGLE EARTH , both the GPSBABEL and GPSVISUALIZER are very useful for these things.

Greetings from Argentina
