Garmin Base Camp issue...

Guys,

I used to use Map Source a lot. Just starting to use Base Camp.

I downloaded the free version of base camp.

The only device I'm messing with currently is my BMW Navigator IV which is loaded with City Navigator.

So when I plug the device up to the CPU. Base camp does not automatically pop up. I have go and click on the icon. Then I see all of my trips and a few routes I created on the device.

My issue is, I want to make route on base camp but the icons for creating routes is not highlighted? All of the tools that I need to use are not usable?

Somebody help a brother out?

Not a BC user but I believe your problem is that BC does not have access to a navagatable map. Do you see a map on PC?

It should see the CN in you device but sounds like it does not.

It sees it when I connect the device. But I have to go internal memory with clutter's up my screen. If I just click on the CN via the unit being plugged up. All of my history is gone but so is my option to create new routes via connecting the dots...

Until a route has been created, there will only be one enabled icon called 'New Route'. Once a route has been created and is selected for modification, the other 4 icons, 'Insert', 'Move Point', 'Erase' and 'Divide', will be enabled.

YouTube has videos on using Garmin Basecamp.
