Convert a GPS file with GPS Babel

GPS Babel is a freeware program that converts GPS data from one format to another. You can download it and run it on almost any computer, but its command-line interface requires some getting used to — so I’ve created this on-line gateway that lets you access a copy of gpsbabel running on GPSVisualizer.com. Of course, you can’t use this page to communicate with your GPS receiver — and a few of GPS Babel’s more advanced options (filters and custom XCSV files) aren’t included.

NOTE: For many input formats — including GPX, OziExplorer, Geocaching.com LOC, Garmin Forerunner, Cetus GPS, IGC, and more (including some that GPS Babel can’t read, like NetStumbler binary files) — you can also convert your GPS files to plain text, GPX, or Google Earth KML with GPS Visualizer’s conversion tool. My utility has these advantages: a simpler interface; the ability to add estimated speed, course, slope, and/or distance fields; and CSV or tab-delimited text output which is much more user-friendly than GPS Babel’s. (My GPS file converter can also read human-created plain-text input files much more readily than GPS Babel.)

Google Earth: To convert files to KML/KMZ for Google Earth, you might want to try GPS Visualizer’s Google Earth input form, which has more options than GPSBabel.
