Movies And Maps plays your dash cam movies and plots the GPS route from the NMEA, GPX or JSON log files on a map.
The GPS position, speed, altitude and accelerometer data is continuously updated while the movie is playing.
Movies with embedded GPS MetaData in the ISO6709 format or movies recorded with the free iOS App "Movies And Maps Recorder" (MaMRec) are also supported.
At any point you can take a full resolution snapshot of the movie and crop, rotate, sharpen and enhance the image before saving. You can trim and export the movie in the same or in a lower resolution with the corresponding GPS log.
Movies And Maps makes it easy to quickly browse through your dash cam movies to find the scene of interest.
Before purchasing the App ensure that:
● The dash cam video format is supported and playable by macOS (MP4/MOV)
● The GPS log files are in the NMEA or GPX format - or
● The videos use embedded ISO6709 GPS Location MetaData - or
● The log file uses the BMW Drive Recorder JSON format
NMEA is a simple ASCII based comma separated (CSV) file format, which is used to log GPS and other relevant data to file. GPX is a widely-used XML file format used to store and share GPS data. This data is used by Movies And Maps to plot the route and current position on the map.
You can use 3rd party tools such as Exiftool and GPS Babel to extract GPS logs from your dash cam footage for use in Movies And Maps.
The NMEA import filter in Movies And Maps is fully customisable so you can adapt it to your own NMEA log format.
Movies with embedded GPS MetaData contain a track inside the movie with GPS location information. Supported formats are ISO6709 and the NMEA format provided by the free iOS App "Movies And Maps Recorder" (MaMRec).
This app is completely free from advertising, no in-app purchasing, no signup, no registration, no subscription, no data collection.

Ratings and Reviews
Must have external NMEA EXIF info to use.
I bought this app solely to view dashcam and bodycam videos side-by-side with a map, using the NMEA GPS information embedded in the .mov or .mp4 file.
However, I did not realize this app requires an external file with the location information, like a .gpx file.
Unfortunately, my attempts to run the terminal command line ExifTool app to extract the NMEA information from the video file have failed.
Without this file, while the Movies And Maps app appears to be a clean-looking and very well built app, unless I can locate a Mac GUI app to extract NMEA information to a file, I have no current use for Movies And Maps.
Since I'm not able to use the program as intended, I cannot fairly rate it good or bad, thus the 3-star rating.
