Importing Waypoint From Basecamp to Zumo 550

I decided to upgrade my 2009 map to the 2012 version and unbeknownst to me, Mapsource doesn't work with it!!!!!

My wife and I are going on a trip at the end of the month and I'm trying to figure out how I can make a waypoint file. I remember in Mapsource that I could have separate waypoint file from the actual routes. I'd like to do that on this trip but I cannot figure out how to do it. I did download the POI installer but I can't quite figure it out. I did use the search function but didn't find what I was looking for so I'm hoping you folks could have the answer.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

-Chris

Did you install BaseCamp?

Did you create Waypoints in BaseCamp?

Did you create Routes in BaseCamp - if needed?

Did you connect your zumo 550 to the computer and allow BaseCamp to recognize it?

Did you select the Waypoints and Routes and "Send to Device"?

Cheers,

Yes, yes, yes,....no!!!

I didn't realize that I had to hold down CTRL and individually select waypoints!!

So I guess in the future I should click them all first and then send them over? Is there another/simpler way or no?

Thanks for the help

MapSource should work just fine with the 2012 maps. I'm using them every day on a XP install in Fusion on a Mac. You do need the latest service pack, 3 IIRC.

I have Windows 7 and according to the Garmin rep I spoke with on the phone awhile back, it won't work with Mapsource sadly.

I have Windows 7 on two computers with 2012 CN maps. Both work well with my Zumo 550 and Mapsource.

One of these days I will spend some bandwidth and take on Basecamp. Most likely will wait for the 4.0 version first, but no hurry since MS working great.

You can group your waypoints into a separate list in Basecamp. Then transfer that list's contents to the gps.

There are two ways to transfer a list and its contents. One is to use ‘Send To’. The other is ‘Export’. Using ‘Export’ the entire list contents will be written to a single file with a *.gpx file extension, (i.e ListName.gpx), You can place its location within the ‘Garmin/GPX’ directory in either the gps’s internal memory or the SDcard.

POI Loader allows you to build a POI data set of waypoints.

Thanks for the video link, I'll check that out.

As for using MS & updated maps on Windows 7, how did you get that to work? Garmin told me it only works with Basecamp after I upgraded to 2012.4 version.

What version of MapSource are you using? IIRC you need a version newer than 6.13.7 unless you mess with the maps (which I've done). Garmin is trying to move everyone over to BaseCamp as they've stopped development on MapSource, but it's still a viable alternative. You might want to poke around Here
