    How can I use the Contour +2 embedded GPS data?

    Hello. I've had a Contour +2 for a year or so. It has a built in GPS that embeds the route data with the video file. I still don't know how to make use of this data. I know that with the Storyteller software you can view the GPS data, and you can upload a video to Youtube that displays the GPS data. But that software isn't useful for making an edit of the different footage taken during a ride. I'd be happy if I could use the Storyteller to make a new video file of a clip with GPS data displayed, but I don't think it can do that.
    I use Windows Movie Maker software to put together a video edit from the various clips I take during a ride. I can overlay music, snip and trim clips, and play with the compression when making a final edit. But I don't know of a way to display the embedded GPS data. Is there software available that can extract and use the embedded GPS data from these Contour +2 video files? I'm not talking about software that can overlay independent GPS data on a video file, I'm talking about using the actual GPS data associated with the video clips. Thanks.

    I just downloaded Dashware and I'm loving it. I tried Virb Edit while Dashware was MIA but I couldn't get it to extract my Contour +2 GPS data from a video file. I have found Dashware to be easy to figure out and I love all the different gauges. I've had no issues extracting Contour GPS data and also overlaying and syncing my Garmin data as well. I'm starting to figure out how to customize the data displayed for what I want. I have no idea how to build the cool looking gauges though, just tinker with the data displayed.

    I still use Microsoft Movie Maker for making the final product, but with Dashware I can get a full video files with sensor data overlaid to work with.
