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!

Review by @grozyan

Mislieading description, app doesn't do what promise - No GPX edit. I needed to edit existing GPX file from cyclecomputer. The device stopped recording track at some timee and continiges 40 minutes after withotut me noticing it. Seems easy, ha, you open the app, load the file. And then nothing. You can't really drag the track or add new points to it. If you click at the bottom left, it says something that doesn't actually work. Horrible UX I suggest developer to a) talk to people and learn their need or b) hire someone whoe can do it and improve app's UI and overall UX. It's just super clanky. Not intuitive and learning curve is steep. Requesting refund.

Obviously written by a map enthusiast - Well-crafted tool for viewing and tweaking GPX files. Love that it gives choice of map sets.
