I can't speak for the Mac programs.
This version or SportTracks is pretty darned good. I still put my data into Garmin Training Centre, Motion Based, Cyclistats, Sport Tracks and even MapMyRide.
Training Centre- I just assume that Garmin would know the best way to work with their own hardware.
Motion Based- Again Garmin, but the data is stored on line. This way if a computer crashes the data is stored off site.
Cyclistats - Will allow me to view my data in so many ways. With the Graphs my progress or lack of, is very easy to see.
SportTracks - Nice work with the Data and the maps are great. If sport tracks had the charts and graphs from Cyclistats it would be near perfect (For me).
MapMyRide- Is just an easy way to share my rides with others. (I did drop my premium subscription as the advertisements are getting to be a little much.) Lately though this site has improved it's data handling and will now acquire heart rate, cadence etc.
I know that it is a little goofy to use so much but each program plays the data differently. Now that a routine has formed all data is gathered while filling up with water after my ride.
With a few more improvements SportTracks could be my only software.
