Convert GPS files into TXT or CSV format by processing waypoints, trackpoints, or waypoints and routes to prepare them for GPS Utility
GPS Utility Import File Converter is an advanced software utility that enables you to convert GPS data into files with the .txt or .csv format and ready them for GPS Utility. It comes loaded with a bunch of options and configuration properties that mostly target experienced users.
Setting up this tool is an uncomplicated task that’s over in just a few seconds. At launch, it brings up a classical-looking panel with a seemingly cluttered structure that represents GPS Utility Import File Converter’s interface.
Customize the GPS conversion mode
You can begin by selecting the output type between waypoints, waypoints and routes, or trackpoints. It’s possible to edit settings regarding IDs, comments, the grid type, first and last record, coordinate format, along with the easting and northing alignment.
What’s more, you can break lines, preview information in the main application window before converting files, as well as set the format for the date and time, along with the list and decimal separators. These are just part of the configurable settings provided by this program. They can be saved to .ini files and imported later or on another computer running GPS Utility Import File Converter.

On the other hand, GPS Utility Import File Converter isn’t that intuitive for inexperienced users. Otherwise, it sports practical options and methods of app customization to turn GPS-formatted files into more user-friendly types.
