Native on Mac OS X since November 11, 2002. MacGPS Pro is also available in a Classic version for Mac OS 6 through Mac OS 9 for those who love their older PowerPC and 68K Macs.
Supports all Garmin and Magellan handheld and fixed-mount GPS receivers with displays (except those receivers which only have a USB interface) for upload and download of Waypoints (with their Icons), Proximity Waypoints, Routes, Track Logs, and Satellite Almanacs. All coordinate transfers produce a map on the screen of the data transferred. All are saved in editable, tab-delimited text files, allowing easy data exchange with spreadsheets, databases, text editors, and other mapping programs.
Supports almost all brands of GPS receivers, including the new Bluetooth wireless receivers, for a real-time display of GPS information on a moving map on the Macintosh screen. Waypoints, Routes and Tracklogs can be generated and used on the Mac.
Real-Time data (NMEA 0183) capture and/or display. Optional large font display makes for easy viewing at a distance or with a quick glance. The current GPS data can be spoken by MacGPS Pro.
