I like your Basecamp screen. Mine is not even near as detailed as yours. What version of Basecamp is this or did you customize it yourself. Oh, it's the iMac version..right..wow neat compared tothe PC version?

This is mine:



What gives....

Thanks

I have no idea why it would do that, but in your situation, I'd phone Garmin and ask if that's normal.

Yes, it is the Mac version. I've yet to try the PC version. I'm running 3.3.2.0. I get those details when I turn the "Detail" slider all the say up.



oh - and it is a Mac

If I create a route on the Montana, it doesn't look anything like the Basecamp routes xml language, but the editable basecamp routes and the non-editable basecamp routes look the same.(in the headers)
If you download your auto-routed route (Activity set to something other than Direct) to the Montana from BaseCamp the Montana knows 1) that it was not created in the Montana and 2) that it's been auto-routed vs. direct route, therefore it will not recalculate and you can't edit it.

To make a route editable in the Montana just change the Activity to "Direct" in BaseCamp before sending it to the Montana.

I believe the Montana uses the attribute, "creator" and the tag "trp:Trip" in the XML to determine if the route is editable or not.

Argghh..you even have ..'Send to Device" or "receive from device" Icons.... Map detail on the maps is OK with the PC Basecamp version but the header, file, edit...Icons of mag.glass; foot tracks, etc...it indeed very cool with the Mac version. So I guess after a long suffering complaint by the Mac'ers you got your reward while us PC'ers are left to our own devices..aarrghhh.....Am too much of a Dummkopf to relearn the Mac...!

Thank you and cheers...

Similar performance to my old 60cx, but not nearly as good as my friend's 478.
Ok, I did a test - did a "Where To/Manhattan" and got the map on the screen and when in anything higher than "Normal" detail, I got slow screen redraws but when I went to "Normal", redraws were what I would consider normal. The screen always showed up rapidly.

Have you tried the "Normal" setting?

Hmm. I just tried a master reset as per your instructions, then navigated to Manhattan again, and it seems totally fine now. Very slightly slower redraws than in a less dense area but it's quite snappy and at least as fast, or faster even, than the 478. Strange.

Anyway, it seems to be working great now. I now have useably quick Manhattan redraws even on detail "most".

I've got a simple basecamp question...

I just downloaded the mac version and started out trying to make a route on some dirt roads in central OR. I'm using 100k topo maps.

I can see the road on the screen, I have the road preferences selected to avoid interstates and state highways but the damn thing absolutely refuses to route me on this dirt road. Instead, it routes me across open country to a large highway and then back to my next click. Seriously. WTF?!?!?!

That would explain it! Some of the routes were old ones created in Mapsource for the 76C and TopoUSA.

So I just tested this, reset activity to Direct in Basecamp and uploaded half a dozen or so of the same ones....they all were editable, and if the profile was set to automotive on the Montana, they recalculated.
Now all I have to do is edit hundreds of old routes so that the autorouting doesn't create those annoying little reversals, U-turns, etc., because some via points were a hundred yards off the road!


This could be a 20 page tutorial in itself. Hmmmm, maybe a candidate for the wisdom thread?

Thanks Moto, this was driving me nuts!!!

Good idea but someone else would need to write it...

Well, I might give it a try...but not 'til I get back from my upcoming ride to California Gold Country.

Maybe by then I will understand this damn beast.

Or just ignore those parts of the route after all, it is just a tool - you don't have to follow everything is says

Agreed. You're not married to it.

Anyone else using the OSM maps finding that they're getting routed on hiking trails?

I'm wondering if this is just a local map data issue or a problem with the translation.

If I set the routing preferences to "shortest distance" from the intersection of Base Station Rd. and Mt. Clinton Rd., just to the west of Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, to Bethel, Maine, (east of Mt. Washington on Rt. 2) I get routed up and over Mt. Washington via the Jewell Trail. This happens both in Base Camp and on the Montana in the "Motorcycling" activity on Base Camp, whether or not the "Narrow Trails" avoidance is set.

If I switch the to the 24k topo Northeast maps, the "Narrow Trails" avoidance seems to determine which way I get routed in that case—my "dirt biking" activity profile in Base Camp wants to go up and over Mt. Washington, while the "motorcycling" profile (set to avoid "narrow trails") wants to continue up Jefferson Notch Rd.

This is a bit annoying (it was very annoying at 80' F on Saturday afternoon when I had intended to continue up Jefferson Notch Rd. but found it still closed and gated, so I decided to follow the GPS instructions...until I got to the cog railway parking lot and it was telling me to continue ahead. Riiiight.).
