Introduction: EasyGPS is a free software designed to read .loc and .gpx computer files and read and write waypoint information to and from GPS receivers. It has a split screen and the map side on the right can be used for planning the order of benchmarks to search for.

Usage notes: EasyGPS allows opening more than one file, with each filename showing on a separate tab. To combine two files, do these steps:

  1. in one file tab, click the first waypoint
  2. while holding down the shift key, click the last waypoint, and all the waypoint rows will be highlighted
  3. click Edit, then Copy
  4. click the other file's tab to open the other file
  5. click Edit, then Paste. Now all the waypoints should be in this file.

To get a Geocaching datasheet for a particular benchmark, highlight the benchmark's waypoint row, right click and click "View Online".
