Garmin Releases GPS Management Application for MacOS X

MacRumors reports that Garmin released a new beta version of their Bobcat GPS management tool for MacOS X. This beta of version 2.0 of the software includes the following features:

  • transfer waypoints, tracks, and routes between a Mac and Garmin GPS device,
  • manage maps and DRM keys for transfer to a Garmin GPS, and
  • search for points of interest on the Mac and transfer the locations to your Garmin GPS.

It wasn't too long ago that Mac users would have to keep a PC around the house or spin up a PC emulator or virtual machine to take advantage of Garmin software. Bobcat looks like a serious product that can help you get the most out of your GPS or heart-rate monitor.
