I ride strictly on roads and have been using RT for my routes. Will Base Camp do everything I need? It seems more oriented to offloading.

No, I purchased a download version. (There was no reason for me to think during the process that I was somehow limiting myself.) Updating the device-- but not the PC map-- is kind of pointless.

Question Simple question re RoadTrip/Base Camp

Could someone please explain to me the difference between RoadTrip and Base Camp? I'm really fed up with RoadTrip (not updated in a year) and perhaps Base Camp can do the trick.
Thanks.

I have found the Touratech bag to be excellent. The map pocket on virtually all bags is too small, but the TT bags can hold a full 8 x 11 document. They also are shaped to fit the 12GS perfectly.
