Useful Tools

Here are a couple of useful tools for GPS owners. These may help manipulate the files in this section into something more specific for your requirements. These are provided without any sort of support

Waypoint Workbench is a great Microsoft Excel-based tool for converting waypoints between several different mapping formats, including Ordnance Survey Grid Reference, Memory Map, Anquet and Latitude/Longitude.

GPS Babel is the ultimate GPS file manipulation tool. The current list of supported formats runs into dozens and maybe even the hundreds. If you can’t find the format you need here then stop looking!
