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, Google 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).
- Export the track points as a tab-delimited file.
- 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.

Helpful for editing tracks

The developer has been pretty responsive, and this app has more advanced editing features that I’ve seen in the other GPX apps I’ve used. For instance, the ability to add points and interpolate timestamps for those points has been useful when I’ve been trying to repair a track where my GPS logger lost signal. Also, this app has relatively good support for track segments. The biggest downside is that it is very slow with large tracks. When traveling, I generate all-day tracks with new points every second, and these are painfully slow until I zoom in enough that only a modest part of the track is being displayed.

Great software crippled by minor issues.

I bought it so I can combine multiple GPS captures into a single clean track that I can share on mapping services.

The biggest omission is that you can’t reverse a route, so you can’t combine traces from inbound and outbound trips. You can reverse the order of track points, but the app won’t change their timestamps, so whatever you do next will effectively put them back in their original order. You have to use online services to do the reverse, then manually mess around with time shifting to get the timestamps close so the combined route is contiguous in the correct direction.

Other bugs:

Operations like reverse track points or manual track point reorder do not update the map. You must save, exit, and reopen the app to see the effect.

You can’t quit without saving changes. You must make manual duplicates of your file after every operation so you don’t lose work if the app does something you don’t expect and can’t undo.

Undo delete point is broken. The restored point will go to the end of the track instead of where it used to be.

Operations like Combine Segments/Tracks are not undoable at all.

Selected and unselected track points look the same on the map. You must memorize point numbers and manually select from a list to select a set of points. No rectangle selection. Routes from a GPS tracker easily number thousands of points so this minor omission is a big PITA.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for your review, and sorry to hear you're having some difficulties. I'm not sure why you state things such as "you can't quit without saving changes." Of course you can quit without saving changes, and when you reopen the file all your edits are preserved. If you want to reverse the edits you made, select "Revert To" under the File menu. The only exception is if you made a global change to disable this function for all apps in the System Preferences (General -> Ask to keep changes when closing documents). I could go on, but if you contact us we can help you with your other issues.

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!
