I think this one meets all or at least allmost all of your criterias:


  • gratis
  • open source
  • linux
  • gtk+
  • metric
  • import gpx
  • show osm
  • show track
  • shows dots
  • show statistics / speed / time etc.
  • zoom and drag

It can even do more:

  • elevation graph
  • Bing aerial map
  • ...

Install via

sudo apt-get install viking
  • OSM doesn't work at my machine, because it fails to download tile. I also can't figure out how I can view the statistics.

You might want to have a look at GpsMaster (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/GpsMaster). It appears to tick all your requirements apart from the GTK+ one (it's written in Java FWIW).

I've found it to be quite a useful utility for viewing GPX tracks and waypoints. The only shortcoming is that I can't see how to get it to display Imperial units (YMMV).
