Viking is a free/open source program to manage GPS data. You can import, plot and create tracks, routes and waypoints, show OSM, Bing Aerial and other maps, geotag images, see real-time GPS position (not in Windows), make maps using Mapnik (not in Windows), control items, etc.
It is written in mostly in C (with some C++) & the GTK+2 toolkit.

Viking aims to be easy to use, yet powerful in accomplishing a wide variety of GPS related tasks. It uses a hierarchical layering system to organize GPS data, maps, and other layer types with spatial data.

Some of the things you can use Viking for are:

 * Uploading and downloading waypoints, tracks and routes to/from GPS.
 * Preparing tracks, routes and waypoints for trips using maps from services such as OpenStreetMap (OSM).
 * Realtime GPS tracking and track recording.
 * Editing routes or tracks and their trackpoints, joining and splitting up tracks and routes.
 * Import and export track, route and waypoint files of various types via GPSBabel
 * View, create and update Geotagged Images (using EXIF data).
 * Making maps with using Mapnik.
