Basecamp Mac to Basecamp PC

I mainly use my Macbook Air with Basecamp to plan the routes, together with Google Earth and Birdseye (great on the Montana!). For the weekend rides I do here in the United Arab Emirates and Oman the Montana is just perfect.

For an upcoming 10 day trip to Salalah, Oman I want to take my HPmini Netbook with me (upgraded with a SSD, sweet). The Question was now how to get the database from the Mac to the PC.

First I tried to make a Basecamp backup from the Mac and then transfer that file to the PC. Unfortunately, for whatever reason I could not complete the backup, some error message came up. Maybe too much data from the birdseye images? I don't know.

So in the end what I did is just coping the database and JnxFiles folder from the library in the Mac and pasted it in the same garmin folder location in the PC (replacing the folders on the PC)

Done and working fine! Like this it keeps my Basecamp Folder and File structure as it is on my Mac. It even keeps my smart lists. Also the Birdseye images loaded just fine.

Nice would be now if I can just sync between Mac and PC, maybe somebody can help me out on this.
