BaseCamp Tutorial

Ed Conde on the New England Riders forum has put together a great tutorial on using BaseCamp. The tutorial evolved from a class agenda from which he's taught a number of BaseCamp haters to use the program in a few hours. This tutorial is very useful for anyone new to BaseCamp or struggling with it, and will get you past the steep learning curve so many folks seem to experience.

Wow is right!

I just skimmed it so far, but I can already tell that is one PhD level piece of work

Ed, thanks for doing this. As a Mac user I would like to offer up my services to beta test your Mac tutorial, if you have a need for it.

I'm relatively Mac savvy but new to the Garmin 590 and BC.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with and let me know if I can help.

This kind of step by step is just what I needed. I bought basecamp and gave up after several failures. Many thanks for the obvious hard work that's gone into this-and it's free!

Well, *there's* your mistake! You don't need to buy Basecamp, it's a free download. ;)

I do agree this tutorial is long needed.

I don't want to speak for Ed but I believe he wrote both but he is not a Mac person and has someone helping him with the Mac version.

It appears that the Mac version as it is right now is the PC version with some notes added to show the Mac procedure. He posted earlier about waiting until after tax day to start.
