I browsed quickly... but didn't see TOPOFUSION on the list.

http://www.topofusion.com/

A great tool once downloaded to compare tracks, or use as a 'mapping' tool.

You can find some GPS tools for the Mac on the website www.javawa.nl
Select the English flag.

You can find there the Mac version of my program WinGDB3 (MacGPX) and others.

Hey Edward,

I am looking for the "English" Flag and was going to add the link into the listing but I must be missing it. Where did you find the English version? How about a direct link for me and I will get it added?

My Quick Coordinates

Not sure if others will find this helpful but I use this little page of mine to get GPS coordinates or to find them quickly. Someone asks "you got the coordinates of that?" So I navigate to this page and find them... especially helpful if I don't have Mapsource handy.
