Uses of Base Camp

We do genealogy, so I created a folder for Genealogy, and created a waypoint for each city in which we need to do research gave each family line it's unique icon. Now when I am thinking about a trip, I can easily see a graphic of points on the map. Connect the dots and you've got an itinerary.

We also enjoy touring Rt66, so I have a folder with waypoints for that. I add to them as I learn of new places. The memo part of the waypoint provides a place for info.

When we RV, sometimes I use BaseCamp kind of like Google Maps when we have no internet or bars on the iPhone. National Parks sometimes put you in that situation.

So. Just pick out a subject or tour you have in mind, throw in a few waypoints, and I expect you will be on your way.
