transfer basecamp maps to new mac?

I have a new iMac 5K and I want to transfer my maps from my MacBook Pro to the new iMac. How does this work? I have never done any registering of maps that I can remember. I do have lifetime maps with my Zump 660.

If I run the lifetime map updater with my Zumo plugged into the new computer will it install the latest maps in basecamp for me? Or do I need to copy over files from the MacBook Pro?

carboncopycloner will copy anything to anywhere, preserve the permissions on each file/directory, along wIth whole positions, disk slices, or whaTever you need.

superduper is pretty cool too.

should be fairly easy on a Mac to copy everything from one place to another.

Basecamp to New PC

I recently transferred my complete Garmin set up to a new PC. This included the original City Navigator maps and life time updater.

I used the following program : http://www.javawa.nl/gmtk_en.html
I am not brilliant with all things IT, but I read the instructions carefully & it worked really easily.

If you check out other posts on here the software is highly thought of.

Thanx for the link. I recently purchased a new PC & was wondering how to load my TOPO Canada map in order to use BaseCamp. I can't find the DVD & even if I do, the new notebook has no optical drive, so I'd still be knackered.

EDIT: Brilliant! Just finished the "Backup/Restore" using the javawa software, worked like a charm.
