Excellent Support & good replacement for VantagePoint - I recently purchased GPX Editor to run on my MacBook Pro. I have been moving data from VantagePoint (which doesn’t run on a Mac) into it. I wanted to add two waypoints which I did successfully and then I wanted to change the date and time field to reflect when I was at the two waypoints (I dive and mark my diving sites based on the time stamp in my dive computer) I couldn't seem to open the date and time field and make a change. I addressed this issue to the developer and received a very kind reply from William Modesitt telling me he would address the issue in a future update. Within 24 hours I looked for an update in the app store and there it was. With the new update, I was able to edit my new waypoints. I have worked in the IT field since 1981 and have NEVER had this kind of service from a developer. Thanks!
Mostly unusable - Program is difficult to use and requires internet service to update route changes. Starting a route from a location other than present location is impossible. It would be great to download competed map and plan route changes where internet service is not available. A compass rose to provide magnetic heading within 0ne degree would be nice. Could be a great program, but missing basic navigation tools.

Excellent, Useful App - After struggling with editing .gpx files in Garmin Basecamp and numerous other apps, I was searching for a simpler solution. GPX Editor fully meets all my needs and is an efficient, highly useful tool for cleaning up existing tracks (getting rid of wrong turns, etc.), organizing my waypoint databases for different areas, even manually creating new tracks to load into my GPS receiver and ride - or share with others. The interface is intuitive - it only took a short time to learn the fundamentals of using it. I continue to discover more useful features as I use it. Kudos to the developer (William Modesitt) for a great app! Update 05/21/20 - The developer continues to update the app on a regular basis, further polishing the interface and adding more useful features. It would be great if more developers were as proactive and put as much continued effort into improving their apps as Mr. Modesitt does!
