How to display a GpsGate (NMEA) log file on Google Maps

GpsGate can log where you go using the NMEA Logger feature. This works on both Windows and Pocket PC.

After logging your trip it can be useful to vizualize it in some way. One way is to display it as a track using Google Maps.

GPS Visualizer has a free online tool which can do this for you:
http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/map?form=google

1. Click on the link above
2. Add your NMEA log file to "Upload your GPS data files here"
3. Click on "Draw the Map"

Tip! Since GPS Visualizer has a 3MB file limit, it can be useful to record your files using the NMEA Filter option. If you only record $GPRMC sentences every 5 seconds, you will greatly reduce the file size.

Here is another more simple online tool:

If anyone knows about other tools to visualize NMEA files please let us know! Online tools or normal applications.
