UTM Coordinate Converter, converts between various geographic coordinate systems, allowing you to convert between various Latitude/Longitudes systems and the Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) system. It includes a map that displays the location you converter, as well the map allows to select a location you would like converted (see Features for more details). The converter supports converting between locations in Decimal Degrees, Degree Minutes, Degree Minutes Seconds and UTM. The following UTM Datums are supported: NAD83/WGS84, GRS80, WGS72, NAD27, GDA94, AGD84, ED50, OSGB36, Krasovsky 1940 and Everest 1830. UTM Coordinate Converter uses OpenStreetMaps, and supports Mapnik, OSM Cycle Map, Bing Aerial Maps, MapQuest-OSM, and MapQuest Open Aerial

None -- waiting for file that works
None - waiting for file that works
I've downloaded this app 5 times and it continues to come up with a "File is damaged..." error when I try to run it. It looked really promising with a nice implementation, but until I can get it to work, it only gets 1 star. MacBook Pro, 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7, OS X 10.8.4, 8GB RAM

Solved the "File is damaged..." problem -- friggin' Gatekeeper in Mountain Lion -- AGAIN! (I keep forgetting about it).
But now that I have the app running, nothing works. Just a bunch of buttons that can't be pressed and a bunch of text boxes that won't allow me to enter anything.
Sigh :-( Rating remains at 1 until I can see this application work...
Updated on Jul 29, 2013After contacting the developer, an updated version was released which solved both the Gatekeeper problem in Mountain Lion AND the non-working buttons and edit boxes.
For doing quick conversions between the various coordinate systems, it performs well. For geocachers with puzzles that require coordinate finagling, it's a good resource.
Updated on Jul 29, 2013Can't seem to get the star rating to update, but now that the app is working, I'd give it a 4.
Pros -- allows for multiple coordinate system datums, easy entering of various formats for degrees, minutes, seconds, and the ability to see locations on the map.
Cons -- sometimes the map redraws are a tiny bit sluggish, but that's due to third party services
I am the developer for UTM Coordinate Converter. Thank-you very much for your feedback.
I have a couple of questions. Do you get the "File is damaged..." error when double-clicking the .dmg you downloaded, or when you try and run the actual applications? If it is the second one, do you have Java 6 installed on your Mac? UTM Coordinate Converter requires Java 6, and as of OS X 10.7, Java 6 is no longer included and needs to be installed separately.
You can get the latest update of Java 6 here: http://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572
