After we volley this a bit, I'd like to cut a release. Please review
and see if you think we're ready to go.
We are pleased to announce version 1.2.0 of GPSBabel, a free
program for converting and uploading waypoints, tracks and routes
that runs on most any operating system. It's available at
Tracks and Routes added
Several of the major file formats can now interchange tracks
and routes when the -t and -r options are used.
Note: tracks and routes are not accessible from the Windows GUI
We have a powerful new way of processing waypoints in bulk to
allow you to choose a subset of the input waypoints to be output
in a process we call "filtering". Using filters, you can now
select or deselect waypoint within a certain distance of a
point, a polygon, or an arc or suppress duplicates.
EasyGPS binary .loc format.
Garmin Mapsource .mps
Microsoft Streets & Trips
And, of course, a number of fixes and enhancements have been made.
For an overview, see
or if you want to get into the nitty gritty, the mailing lists
and source archives contain every change.
Many thanks to those that volunteered help in bringing this program.
