Viewing/saving GPX files

Hi everyone. I am new to this forum, and was hoping for some advice. I have a Garmin GPSmap62s, but no software to view the trails after my hikes. Can anyone recommend software so I can save the data and produce a map and elevations like those shown on hikes on this website, plus details of the time, speed, distance, time stopped etc? Thanks, Ann

Hi Anne. I use free software called GPX Master. GpsMaster is a free (GNU GPL v2) and open source desktop application used to create, view, edit and analyse GPX files. The program is focused toward the analysis of recorded tracks, but also offers features for planning outdoor activities such as backpacking, hiking, and biking. You can import and view the track but I'll have to check on all the other details you mention as I primarily use it for creating the track that I then use to follow on my GPS. I'll do some more research and I'll get back to you, including the location to download the software from. 

Hi again. Here is the link to the zipped program. http://gpsmaster.org/download/GpsMaster_0.61.00_src.zip

Wonderful Darren that looks perfect! Thanks for your help.

No trouble at all Ann
