Several years back I would use Garmin mapping software that I downloaded when I updated my GPS devices. I know that Base Camp replaced it. What is the name of that and can I still get it somehow? Was it MapSource?
MapSource is the software your looking for which was replaced by Basecamp. It's still available from:
but no longer supported by Garmin
Yes, I think that's what it was called. It was easier to use than BaseCamp.
It's all relative. I've been using BaseCamp for a long time now. Occasionally I fire up Mapsource and boy do I find it difficult
Thank you for all of the information. Here is what I want to do. And, maybe Google Maps will be better in this situation. I am an ATV enthusiast. A group of us will be going on a ride in about a week and a half. I want to show the route on a map, which will be on some county roads, some forest roads, and some ATV trails.
Does Google Maps allow a route like that in which I can select what roads it uses?
Update: I was able to create a route in Google Maps. They do have a limit when adding multiple destinations, though. I think it might be ten.
No such limitations using Furkot.com or Tyre to Travel (http://www.tyretotravel.com/). Both the Furkot website and Tyre software easily allow you to create GPX files that download to your Garmin GPS as Trips/Routes.
In addition both of these alternatives are much easier to use than Basecamp or Mapsource IMHO.
That is great to know. Thank you for the information.
I still find MapSource much easier to use. I am dabbling with BaseCamp but I don't find it that easy.
One thing I see with BaseCamp is it seems to store your last used GPX file.
In Mapsource you have to point it to the GPX files location.
I found a great website that allows you to create routes that uses google maps on the site and allows you to export that route to either garmin or tom tom gps. when you first open the maps it shows the uk, but just scroll the map to the US and you are good to go.
