... the user friendly GPS tool


These are the stable versions of RouteConverter that I'm trying release every two months:

All files have a size of about 35 to 70 MByte.


RouteConverter has been written for Java 8 and Java 11. If you're using an older Java version please download and install the latest Java:

Install Java

Mac OS X

Since Mac OS X 10.7.5 and 10.8 there is an anti-malware feature of the Mac OS X operating system called GateKeeper. This prevents RouteConverter from running directly after a download because RouteConverter is not in the Mac App store and it's not digitally signed by me. Please follow this procedure (more details):

  • set the GateKeeper settings to 'Anywhere'
  • start RouteConverter
  • set the GateKeeper settings back ('Mac App Store and identified developers' is the default)

You only have to do this once every time you're using a new RouteConverter version.


There is no installation necessary. To start the program just double click on the file you've downloaded. If an ZIP-Extractor like WinZip or PowerArchiver is started upon that, please have a look at the FAQ.
