BaseCamp Help and Information

 

I have asked questions for help on BaseCamp but they are in other post for BaseCamp and not always seen.

I am making this post as a place for help and information about BaseCamp.

I don't want to learn it but if Garmin stops supporting Mapsourse and uses BaseCamp it must be a better product.

If you have any questions or have any tips for BaseCamp please post them here.

Thanks Mary

Mac

Are you using BC for Mac? I am.

On the left side of BC, the column. The column has three divisions: My Garmin Devices, On My Computer, and the third division. That third division will display the contents of the BaseCamp data or the attached device data, whichever is selected at the time.

Now that third division also displays a gear in the title bar. That is where I can select the sorting options such as Type, Name, Newest, Oldest.

When you are dead, you don’t know that you are dead. It is only difficult for the others. It is the same when you are stupid.

Symbols

I wasn't aware of that sort by date feature in Basecamp. I use the PC version but I'll look. It would be handy feature to have!

The default symbol for POI's created by most Garmin GPSr's is the blue flag. I avoid using that symbol for the rest of the POI's I create in a file. When I download from a GPS, the blue flag icons can easily be sorted and processed to suit my needs.

sorting favorites

COOL!!
As Sussamb asked, How Do You Do That??
I am using BC 4.7.1 on Windows. There are three panes: device/folder pane, map pane, data pane. The favorites, waypoints, routes, track logs, etc appear in the data pane. The gear icon there offers only 'sort by' and only name/symbol and ascending/descending. Sadly, no date.
Thanks!

Also, I got two good replies to my original question about finding favorites created on the GPS in the Garmin forum here: https://forums.garmin.com/apps-software/mac-windows-software...

Well ...

Where there's a will ... there's a way ... DriveSmart50LMT-D, Nuvi 2508LMT-D, 1490LMT, 1310, Montana 650T, Etrex 20

WHAT????!?!?

I can not believe that a Mac option has more features than the PC option.

Keep looking... what you are looking for HAS to be there. It just has to.

Well

If it is I've never spotted it, and I've been using BaseCamp pretty much since the day it was released.

The PC version sorts by Symbol, Name, Ascending, Descending. No oldest or newest.

Ascending or Descending???

What is Ascending and Descending?

I don't have that on the Mac version of BC.

Ascending and Descending

Ascending and Descending refers to the Date.

no time sort in windows

No, ascending/descending refer to A>Z or Z>A for the name of the waypoint or symbol

Exactly

Exactly.

I wonder what other differences there are between the PC and Mac versions of BC.
