    Nav V, Base camp, . . . head explody!

    See my ad HERE.

    No I'm not kidding. Yes I'm dead serious.
    Please don't reply with tips and tricks to make Basecamp work. I'm over that. Just want someone to come over and build a simple route, put it on my Garmin and go for a quick ride proving the results.
    Frankly, I don't believe it can be done.

    Guessing you aren't looking for more suggestions about putting your routes onto your GPS.....

    Might try gpsies.com. Make your route/track, save it as gpx file, open it in Basecamp, send it to your GPS.

    My suggestion is ditch basecamp, and get the Locus Map Pro app on your phone.

    In their "trip planner" you draw the route (the maps are free and routable), save, and export the .gpx (either to an SD card using an OTG adaptor or directly to the garmin using a pc).

    It's the easiest I've found. If you want to try it I can post steps. Lets you replan in the field without a pc too.

    Or stick with it, I'm sure you'll get a taker.

    I'm over 70 and can do it in Basecamp. What's the problem?

    Sorry, the Flea Market isn't for chit chat.

    You know we have a GPS forum, right? Link

    Edit: PS I hate Basecamp too. Roads and Rec was a brilliant program and IMO they screwed it up big time.

    I have trouble even logging in to base camp.

    Check out ridewithgps.com. It is mostly aimed for bike touring but works well for building and exporting any route. It has a number of useful layers such as USGS topo scans and is very easy to use for importing/exporting GPS tracks.
