Edit GPS eXchange format (GPX) files on your Mac. GPX Editor can edit GPX files exported from many GPS devices and other apps. - Open, edit and save multiple GPX files. - View with Apple Maps or Open Street Maps. - View and edit waypoints, routes, tracks, track points, and file info. - View charts such as elevation vs. track point (when elevation exists). - Copy waypoints, routes, tracks and file info and paste to a spreadsheet. - Copy & paste waypoints, routes, and tracks from one file to another. - Show or hide waypoints and track points. - Drag waypoints and track points to a new location on the map. - Add new waypoints, routes, tracks and track points. - Get current weather for a waypoint or track point. - Download elevation for any waypoint or track point. - Take a screen shot of the map for printing or reference. - Drag and drop track points to rearrange their ordering (within the track point list). - Preferences let you change pin, route and track colors and more. - Flickr search for photos and videos at any waypoint or track point location. - Delete waypoints, routes and track points to refine your GPX file. - Delete multiple track points easily. - Merge track points. - Combine track segments. - Combine tracks. - Convert track points into waypoints. - Delete track segments. - And more! For example, you have a track from a bike ride, but you want to trim the beginning and end portions of the track. With GPX Editor it’s easy to delete multiple track points for this very purpose! Note that GPX extensions are ignored.

Excellent for editing tracks!

5
Downloaded the GPX Editor app and was editing tracks within minutes. Very user friendly. I had a couple of questions and emailed the developer and got a response in a few minutes - excellent customer support! The app does everything that I want it to do.

Mislieading description, app doesn't do what promise

1
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.

Very tedious to use, would be fantastic with some shortcuts

2
This would be fantastic if there were some shortcuts around the very repetitive things. For example, when routing through waypoints, you have to double click each waypoint, and some of my gpx files have 10,000 waypoints (so I had to write an automating script to double click each one, and it STILL took an hour). If there were some way to just say "I want all these waypoints in order" that would save me hours. Also, there are certain preferences you cannot control. For example, if you add a waypoint, a pop up menu comes up, and if it's over the next waypoint, you might accidentally open the waypoint in a map. There is little to no official support, because I cannot find answers or workarounds to any questions anywhere online. The user manual is basic at best. I know it's a $5 app, but it's the only thing I can find for Mac that allows you to edit GPX files with a graphic user interface. Some tweaks to make it easier would easily bump this up to 5 stars, but for now, it's very frustrating spending hours shift-cliking and double clicking on a single file.

Disappointed

3
Very slow. It warned me that it wouldn't like my trace of 8300 trackpoints. Why? That's a pretty typical mountain biking ride for me. I have much longer. The author seriously needs to work on the performance. My GPX recordings contain extensions (heart rate, etc). GPX Editor says it doesn't support them when you try to open the file. OK, but don't choke on it. First time it didn't but then crashed when I tried to duplicate the file. The size of the trackpoint dots is all wrong. The size doesn't change with the zoom, so that it looks all goobery like a kiddy program when zoomed out. Why?

Performance is not good

2
you must be very patient to use this tool, move a waypoint may need 2-3 sec. (I am using 2019 macbook pro with the 8th intel CPU). Something I need to move multiple waypoints (because they may shifted), this tool can't select all the waypoints I want to move and move together, you need to move them one by one.

Does Exactlly What it Has to

5
GPX Editor is a very able piece of software. It efficiently opens GPX files, allows you to sort, move, or delete track points, and it does almost everything intuitively - exactly as you would expect. A huge plus: the developer is amazingly quick and complete with support responses. You couldn’t ask for quicker.

Great app and support

5
I have not needed to contact the developer for anything but new features are consistently added. It is a great tool to manage my motorcycle tracks/routes before usingon my smart phone.

A handy tool to have in your collection

5
This app isn’t the end-all-be-all of GPS data editing, but it’s useful for the thing that it specializes in: editing GPX tracks. It’s the easiest interface I’ve found to curate collections of lots of tracks. I just got back from a trip where I had multiple GPS units running at the same time and needed to reconcile their data. I did the repetitive work with a Python script, and then cleaned up the results by hand using this tool. It made it easy to split and join tracks and to tweak points by dragging them on the map. The author is quite responsive to feature requests.

Easy to use, very effective, excellent support

5
I needed a program to edit together many different gpx tracks into complete routes and this program has completely fulfilled those needs. It’s highly intuitive and does exactly what it promises. When I discovered a minor bug, I emailed support and got a response within minutes. A patch was readied within days. And to be clear, I’ve used the program for ~100 hours now and aside from that minor glitch, it has been flawless. 8/26/18 Update - I just wanted to reiterate how fantastic the support is for this product. Once again, when I found an issue that needed attention, the email response was almost immediate and a solution was found in a timely fashion. I’m genuinely impressed by how responsive the programmer is.

Landscape Photographer - Excellent App

5
I do a lot of hiking and photographing landscapes. I use my phone to track my hikes and then export a GPX file to geo-tag my photos to the locations at which they were photogaphed. I didn’t realize Adobe Lightroom had a 50,000 point max import. This app allowed me to merge every two points to cut my 75,340 points to half so I would be under the 50,000 point import. I was also able to timeshift the points with ease (all 75,340 points). I did contact the developer with a question and he responded same day. Don’t hesitate if you need a little help with GPX files.
