Can I convert GPS uploaded data within GlobalMapper into a Shape file format?

If I used a GPS unit on the ground to collect points for Points of Interest or political boundaries can I then upload it into Global Mapper within a PC and then convert the Points of Interest to a shape file and the political boundaries to another shape file?

    Most GPS devices have a way to get your data out as a GPX file (many Garmin units directly store the user data in this format). Global Mapper can load GPX files right in then you can export the data to new Shapefiles or whatever format that you need.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
