- 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!

Ratings and Reviews
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.
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!
A handy tool to have in your collection
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.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
