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:
- in one file tab, click the first waypoint
- while holding down the shift key, click the last waypoint, and all the waypoint rows will be highlighted
- click Edit, then Copy
- click the other file's tab to open the other file
- 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".
