I've been working with Garmin on an unrelated ticket, but the discussion did reveal that Garmin is working on new 64-bit BaseCamp and MapInstall for Mac. The Garmin rep did not know when these would be released.
Garmin did say it would be released by end of last year, but they missed that deadline though as posted they do say they still intend to do so
Thanks for the info. I just bought a new Macbook Pro with the latest OS.
This is helpful information.
I do see the warning once in a while that the app will not be compatible as Mac transitions to all 64 bit, so I guess Apple will soon be no longer supporting anything other than 64 bit apps. Maybe this Spring Apple will announce a new OS that will be exclusively 64 bit.
Great news regarding the new Basecamp.
I lost support long ago for many of my critical apps that were 32 bit. The newer 64 bit supported apps are not as good but still useable. Hopefully Basecamp will be better, not worse.
Thanks for the info.
The new BaseCamp and MapInstall are here!
Installed both with no apparent problems on mid 2012 15" MBP Unibody.
All installed and running. So far so good.
... didn't last long, update has been pulled as it's causing issues with some Mac versions.
The title bar was "BaseCamp (Internal Release)"
Something that obvious should never make it out.
It was due for release ... something was going wrong with some Mac versions as I posted.
As per the Garmin forum
Software Version 4.8.2 has been backdated to 4.7.0 due to it having issues with some versions of OS.
Well, let's hope they made fixes, improvements, and enhancements.
It is not surprising that Garmin is having difficulties with the BaseCamp fixes for the Mac. Since they stopped development of BaseCamp about 2 years ago, I suspect most of the original developers have moved on and Garmin no longer has developers that have intimate knowledge of the internal workings of BaseCamp.
BaseCamp was pulled back, MapInstall and MapManager remain updated.
I'm still using the new release BC V4.8.2 on a new MBP running OS 10.14.3 and I'm not noticing issues. I have not used it that much, but so far so good.
If it works then Garmin say you're ok, it only affects some users.
THat'd be a nice addition, since OS X and all the CPUs have been 64 bit since at least 2008/2009.
Just saw that BC 4.8.3 is available.
Just downloaded 4.8.3
Installed with no apparent problems on mid 2012 15" MBP Unibody and a late 2009 21.5" iMac.
Changes made from version 4.7.0 to 4.8.3:
Upgraded app to 64-bit.
Fixed issue where certain poi files would use large amounts of
