    Help this Newbie save time.

    Do I need to download BASECAMP on to my 680 in order to import GP files ?

    Thanks

    No. Basecamp is software that you download to a computer like a PC or Mac. It is used to create and maintain gpx files.
    It then allows you to transfer gpx files to and from the Montana and see what tracks, routes, and waypoints are on the Montana.

    But you can also transfer gpx files directly to the Montana using something like Microsoft Explorer and a USB connection.

    The files must be placed in the folder Garmin\GPX on either Internal Storage or a micro SD card.
