Could have used you as bait today on my way to Panama City Beach, but it was too cold to speed much even on the mostly two-lane route I took.

Is anyone around here using Garmin Basecamp? Mapsource had to be removed from my computer and apparently Garmin doesn't support it anymore. They are moving everything to Basecamp. I am just about ready to go back to paper maps unless someone can give me one on one instructions on how to use Basecamp. I've viewed all the tutorial videos but still cannot make sense of it.

I have BASECAMP and ROADTRIP on my laptop. Roadtrip is the Mac only version of MapSource (or does the same thing). I used Basecamp before I found out about RoadTrip. I can help you with it... Just let me know when.

Are you using it in the Mac or Windows format?

Basecamp is stewpid and I hate it, but I think my understanding is the same as yours, that Mapsource is being fazed out. It's a tough titty but we all have to suck it I'm afraid.

BaseCamp appears to me to be more geared towards hikers, but I made it work for what we do, but quit using it when I got RoadTrip. Still have some databases and routes in both programs databases.

Not hard to use, just different.

I was just getting pretty good at using Mapsource. Now I have to learn this crap. They don't make it easy on us non technical guys.

So I started by BaseCamp to just play around with it and it said "An update has been downloaded. Click here to upgrade."

So I did...

After it uninstalled the version I had, it says the new one can only run on OSX 10.6 and I have 10.5... SCREW GARMIN and their crappy software!!!

It should check that before it downloads, much less installs the updates!!!

I have no idea what that means, but it sounds bad.

Roger that. I'm hanging on to mine as long as I can. Did you look in the GPS threads for any info?

I've looked at several threads but none of them seem to answer the basic function problems that I'm having. I haven't even begun to build complicated routes yet. I'm still trying to figure out the simplest of things, like: How to save routes, How to work with imported routes, How to name routes, How to separate routes. etc

I'm just completely lost.
