    This software has been available from Satmap's site for at least 4 months - I installed it mid-June. Still, it's good to let Mac users know it's there, I suppose!
    It does what it says on the tin - allows Mac users to transfer files between Mac and Satmap, and also converts .map files to .gpx files and vice versa - but anyone who's used the Windows version will be disappointed that the functionality stops there. No geotagging, no support for folders, no realtime data on memory usage in the Satmap. Oh, and every time I've tried to use the firmware update facility in this software to update my Satmap unit, it's buggered it up and I've had to re-install the firmware using a windows PC. Be warned!

    I didn't spot it before and, to be fair, it's a beta release rather than finished software. Incidentally, the firmware update worked fine for me.

    It could be that my problems have been caused by beta firmware I've been testing for Satmap.
