Viking is a free/open source program to manage GPS data. You can import and plot tracks and waypoints, show OpenStreetMap and/or Terraserver maps under it, download geocaches for an area on the map, make new tracks and waypoints, see real-time GPS position, etc.

It is written in C with the GTK+ 2 toolkit, available for Linux, other POSIX operating systems, and Windows, and is licensed under the GNU GPLv2+.

If you're having a hard time visualizing it: check out the screenshots and then download it to try it out.
