LoadMyTracks is a piece of software that will communicate with GPS devices from many manufacturers to send and receive data. It can also be used to translate data between the popular GPX and KML (Google Earth) formats. The software provides support for Waypoints (single locations in space), Routes (lists of waypoints that can be used as instructions of where to go, Tracks (the breadcrumbs that many GPS devices keep to show where you have been) and additional data that may vary by device.

When used in conjunction with Cartographica, our GIS product, you can explore, analyze, and present your tracks and waypoints.

See our site for specifics on which devices are confirmed to work with the current version of LoadMyTracks. Many common Garmin, US GlobalSat, Magellan, Timex, TomTom, and sony GPS devices are known to work. Serial connections are supported for many models that can't communicate directly over USB (MacOS X-supported serial cable required).

NOTE: We have reports of problems with Serial devices (Garmin, DG-100, etc) under Lion with the AppStore version. If you encounter these, please try the non-AppStore version.


Release Notes:

- Updated to fix problems with Garmin Storage devices due to permissions error
- Updated to fix problems with Sony and similar file-based storage devices due to permissions error

LoadMyTracks worked great - I have an older gps and this little app worked amazingly well to download not just waypoints but the tracks I hadn't been able to transfer off the device. I did use a serial to usb connecter and it wasn't fast but it was otherwise perfect. Thanks!

Needs KML Import - Never got far with the app as it needs KML import. My goal was to import KML and export GPX

Works with my old Garmin 60cs - I wanted to download tracks using my old Garmin GPSmap 60CS but couldn’t get the Garmin Connect website to discover the data. I was able to use LoadMyTracks to connect to the device and save KML files to Google Earth. So far, so good.

Review by Deeashley

This ONLY works with a Garmin device! - … At least from what I can tell. ☹️ It’s too bad, since it was the only free app in the app store that had good ratings (as in more than 2 stars or anything at all), unlike all the others. I should have read the description more carefully. I was not aware that this app will literally not do anything unless it’s hooked up to a Garmin GPS device... *sigh* (four stars because I didn’t want to screw up there good reviews because I evidently can’t read). The search continues.
