Developer Dirk Stichling has announced myTracks 2.2. for Mac OS X (, an update to his GPS/Photo application that allows the user to download, sync, edit, and record GPS tracks.

myTracks’ Logger Assistant has presets for more than 50 GPS devices. Features include: automatic geotagging; iPhoto ’09 and ’11 and Aperture 3 compatibility; track import, export, editing, and library; geocaching; OpenStreetMap and Google Earth support; and a free iOS version with sync.

Users can drag and drop JPEG or RAW photo files onto myTrack’s dock icon, where they will undergo geotagging automatically, syncing to the appropriate GPS track. A manual mode allows for geotagging without a GPS track.

myTrack displays GPS tracks on a variety of different maps, including: OpenStreetMaps, Microsoft Bing Maps, OpenCycleMap, NearMap, Google Earth, and TrekBuddy. The user may scroll in any direction and zoom. The application includes both bookmark and search capabilities for navigation of all maps.

myTracks also supports geocaching (an outdoor sport where participants hide and find containers using a GPS search) from such web sites as geocaching and open caching. Files may be filtered based on different criteria, and may then be exported.

myTracks 2.2 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. It costs approximately US$13; a demo is available for download.
