Does anyone know of a good editing software for GPS that works on a mac? Just want to do the typical editing waypoint symbols, changing trail colors etc. Using Lowrance files. Thanks!
I have been looking for years, if you call Lowrance they will confirm, no. Best I found was parallels for mac then loading windows XP or older. Old and really clunky. Find an old PC with windows XP. I have tried many conversion products and mac programs with no luck. Post up here if you find one...
Get a current copy of Parallels and Win 7 or Win 10 and you'll be able to run virtually any modern Windows software. I use it for Autocad, Solidworks, Bendtech and others. Expertgps is running on it as well. I was able to load BAP .gpx files and edit them. The response is pretty good though I can't compare it running natively.
performance is suffering hence I only get into virtual box for specific tasks and then leave the OS.How is your graphics performance? GPS editing doesn't look like it requires it but in CAD/modeling apps I found it to be a bit sluggish on screen/component redraws. Otherwise it's pretty good. Not quite up to the two big commercial offerings but a great start.
