    In lists that share tracks:

    Is there a way to change the name of a track in one list without the name automatically changing as well in every list that contains that same track?

    I've tried moving the lists to separate folders under My Collection, but I still can't change the name of a track in one list without the name automatically changing in list that contains that track.

    You can duplicate the track and then the duplicate to whatever list you want to add it. Afterwards, you can rename it.

    Keep in mind that once you create a Duplicate of any data the two objects are no longer the same - so making any changes to one will not effect the other.

    "... so making any changes to one will not effect the other."

    That's exactly what I'm trying to achieve ... to be able to make changes to a track without the same change occurring in every list where that track exists.

    Thanks, guys. I'll give duplicating a try.

    This worked:

    1. Made a dupe of the track I wanted to change in the master list.

    2. Moved the dupe to the target list where I wanted the renamed track to exist.

    3. Removed the dupe from the master list.

    4. Renamed the duped track in the target list.

    5. Master list was unaffected, which has been my goal.

    Thanks!

    Okay, Base Camp and I are getting along fairly well. Last night, I messed with the new Trip Planner menu and was able to hack my way through it building a 7 day trip with multiple waypoints. It transferred to my z665 just fine. However, when I tried to copy the route and paste it to an e-mail, I couldn't do it. Do any of you guys know how to do that?

    played around with this application a year ago and ended in a facepalm, and using my phones' gps apps instead. today, the new version, on a mac, is fantastic.

    wow. ok, going to toil away while it rains. :clap

    Wow, just tried playing around with Trip Planner on my Windoze machine. Complete and total fail within one minute. I typed in my start point as Elkins AR and it started throwing out addresses for no reason so I selected the library. Next I TRIED to select a destination of Pigeon Forge TN, well, it started spitting out addresses within a couple hundred miles of me that had PIGEON or FORGE in them. Eventually the POS just times out with about 10 addresses listed. If I try to hit start trip it comes back with an error stating I have no destination selected. Seriously, you can't just chose a city for a destination? I mean WTF, I sure as hell can do it in Google Maps, and it takes like 5 seconds.Just more suck from Garmin.

    OK, just went back and started all over, you have to watch as it tries to auto fill what you're typing then select from the pull down menu before you complete the city and state and hit return.

    You at least need to give BC a chance - typing in the correct name usually gives good results: Pigeon Forge, TN

    Now you're just making shit up. Go ahead and type in a start city and state, then a destination city and state. Then select start trip. If you don't CHOOSE something out of the lame ass drop down window, it will error out. Now go to Google Maps and type in a city and state in the A position, then type in a city and state in the B position. I'm betting you won't get an error there. :lol3

    Just joking around of course...

    I have been working with v4.2 for quite some time. Even built routes for 72 days on the road - no problem. I just finish putting a 13 day trip together - no problem. I am using the Mac-BC version though. YMMV

    Just to rub it in a little, I did as you suggested and started a Trip in Trip Planner. I used your intended start location. As soon as I typed P-I-G-E-O-N I received the following:

    Not sure why you had such issues but I did set my Search Options to only search Cities and I did have my map centered on TN. You need to keep in mind this is not Google Maps. Google has many hundreds of acres of server farms just to handle your search string. BaseCamp has your wimpy little PC and a single Map.

    I have no doubt you received the error - but as I indicated, you might want to adjust your Search options and see if you get something like this:

    If you girls can stop swatting each other with your hand bags long enough, is it possible that a comma needs to be between the city and the state?

    :rofl

    I'm just having fun with Albie...and trying to help - at the same time.:D

    To answer your question, it isn't necessary depending upon how you have your Search options defined. I set my search radius to 500mi. But if you want to reduce the number of hits you get that aren't of value, just center the map on the general area. Then you will get relevant hits sooner rather than later. Most problems usually come from misspelling part of the search string so I type slowly and watch to see what comes up as I type. Never type more than you need to is the rule.:deal

    P.S, As I mentioned earlier, also adjust the Search Options - for example, if I'm only looking for Cities, I only select that option.
