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.

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.

No, it not Eakins. Looks like a good tool though. Hmmmm, where would I put it though? If a new classification what should it be? How about some input?
