Garmin GPS software update
Garmin International today announced that it has expanded its suite of Mac-compatible applications to include waypoint, track, and route management. The new trip planning software works with both PowerPC and Intel-based Macs, and works in conjunction with all Garmin USB devices. The software allows Mac users to transfer waypoints, tracks, and routes between a Mac and Garmin device while managing data using Garmin's catalog of map products. Favorite points of interest are available for quick reference on the Garmin GPS, and users can save as well as view favorite waypoints or tracks with a few keystrokes.
The software is available for free via digital download, and the company is handing out copies of its application to all Macworld Expo attendees. The pre-release version precedes a future version promised by Garmin, which will include features like route editing and 'find by address' functionality by the end of 2008.
