EasyGPS software is a free software which helps travelers to download the best maps, routes, and waypoints available on the internet to their Garmin, Magellan, or Lowrance GPS. Since EasyGPS provides the best information available on the internet the users can rely on their navigation devices when they get lost midst of an adventure trial or trekking. EasyGPS does a compatibility test in order to let the user know whether the application works with the navigation device works or not. EasyGPS is useful for both hikers and people who drive from a place to another.
According to their official website, EasyGPS was the brainchild of TopoGrafix and georeaching.com. Dan Foster, the author of EasyGPS and Jeremy Irish, founder of georeaching.com worked together in order to create a file format '.loc'. This file format helped the users to just send their location caches to their navigation devices from their windows PC instead of typing the location coordinates into their devices. A few months later both of these men gave this format an update by creating GPX, which a popular mapping and GPS format these days.
