While SportTracks is king in Windows land, there seem to be two available for Mac OS X:
Ascent looks pretty nifty but also doesn't seem to be updated frequently. Though if you look at the release notes, 1.11.8 was updated on October 11, 2011, which isn't that long ago. Their forum really doesn't give any indication that it's often updated or being used by too many people.
TrailRunner looks a bit more "Mac-like" and has a nicer looking website. It also appears to be "shareware" in the old sense: it's free but you're welcome to donate if it's good. That said, the graphing seems to be a little less thorough with this than Ascent, but perhaps I just haven't explored the demo enough. The FAQ is extensive and explains the "shareware" nature of the app.
Now I just need the Garmin 610 and one of these apps and I'll be set! Uhhh, you know, in March or so. Maybe a nice birthday gift.
