Thanks for the list. I tried the software but still couldn't find a solution. If you have another idea, please let me know. My answers in bold:

Re: GoPro Telemetry Resources (software)
Okay as I cannot edit my post anymore. I found GoPro Temeletry Extractor at a different link that can convert to gpx.

So I will go on with dashware. Editing gauges is a bit annoying and the rendering time is really long but better than nothing.

RaceRender has a watermark in free version so also not usable if you don't want to pay for GoPro's Apple addictions (yes part of it).
