I am using Basecamp more now that I am having problems with Mapsource not recognizing certain areas of my maps. The question I have is in Mapsource you could always right click on a selected map and choose properties and then see total miles and estimated time of travel. I can't seem to find that info in the Basecamp maps I create. I understand I can click "open" and view certain info about my route but none of the above mentioned info is available.
Well this may be a first........I get to answer my own post. While watching a video on YouTube for Basecamp I happened to notice at the bottom of the screen when the map was highlighted that is shows the total distance and time of travel. I hope this info will help someone else.
And with MapSource you can select a range of points in the track to determine the length of that portion of the track. I have not figured out how to do the same with BaseCamp
I think we are all beginning to feel the effects of information overload. Many developers are compelled to constantly add or change things. Just about the time we get it figured out, things get "improved" and moved around. The confusion that ensues often overshadows the true improvements. We sometimes overlook what was meant to be obvious. There is satisfaction in discovering the answer to your own question, and your reply to yourself may indeed be helpful to some of our peers.
If you are referring to Routes - open the Roue Porperties window/highlight the points you want to measure and the time and distance will be displayed int the upper left. For tracks it's the same procedure
Good to know!
I have also since found that when you right mouse a route and click on "open" you can add a check mark to the box in the bottom of the window for " more info" this then displays the mileage and time to the end of the route similar to the way it did in Mapsource. Also right clicking on points listed between the starting and ending of your route, and choosing "don't alert on arrival", will stop your Garmin from announcing via points along the route if they are unneeded.
Great compilation of tutorials
