GPI to GPs converter
GPI to GPs converter is a software program which can seamlessly turn Garmin Points of Interest files (GPI) into Google Earth files (KMZ) or the GPS-supported format (GPX). It can be handled even by first-time users.
This is a portable application, so installing GPI to GPs converter is not necessary. In other words, you can store the app on a USB flash drive or any other removable device, save it to any computer and directly run its executable file.
What's more important is that the Windows Registry is not updated with new entries, and no leftover files can be found on the hard drive after program removal. Moreover, you can always have GPI to GPs converter with you whenever you're on the move.
The app is packed in a standard interface with an intuitive layout. Importing items into the list can be done with the help of the file browser or "drag and drop" method. GPI to GPs converter does not support the processing of multiple items simultaneously.
In the main application window you can view details concerning the waypoints, such as coordinates along with the date and time. So, all you have to do is establish the output directory, filename and format, in order to initialize the conversion operation.
The program uses a low-to-moderate quantity of CPU and system memory, has a good response time and quickly finishes a task. We have not come across any issues throughout our testing; GPI to GPs converter did not hang, crash or pop up error dialogs.
On the other hand, the tool integrates limited features. For example, you cannot preview the source or output file within the main frame, make the app automatically open the target folder when a job is completed, or minimize it to the system tray area. But we must take into account the fact that GPI to GPs converter has not been updated for a long time.
