    Playing a recorded GPS track

    What is the preferred software to play back a recorded GPS track? I'd like it to play on a map, and optionally display speed. I want to record this and integrate with some of my video.

    Thanks!

    There are options, but you're probably not going to like them much. I have seen some "dashboard" programs that sync a GPS track with a video and give you an overlay. They're not widely available, really.

    I think most vids that display this kind of thing are making use of Contour's own software and a GPS-enabled camera.

    I made a "soft" version that had a moving map overlay onto my video. Basically, I created a flyover of a track in a program called ArcScene (part of the ArcGIS suite - you won't like the cost of this), though you could probably do it in Google Earth, too, but not as fluidly. I overlaid that onto my video footage in Sony Vegas (the vid editing software I use). The video didn't correspond directly to the map, but the trail I used it for was barely over a mile long, anyway.

    Google Earth will play a "fly-through" of your track, with adjustable viewing altitude and angle. Easy-peasy, see instructions here. But, I don't know how to display speed.

    Garmin Connect has a "player" that will play your track strictly in an overhead view (map or satellite imagery), and simultaneously shows stats including speed. connect.garmin.com (free membership).
