@cobra46 I just got my new laptop so its time to play with google earth, thanks for the video
while using google earth Whats the best way to create a track to back track on your track?
This is the BaseCamp Tutorial thread not a Google Earth Thread. You would be better off sarting a new thread with your questions.
Hey bud did you ever complete the mac version? I am new to garmin new to basecamp and i am struggling big time!! I just purchased the ZUMO 395LM and love it but learning base camp is almost alien!! Ridiculously advanced and not easy to learn by any means - thats an understatement - NEED HELP PLEASE !!
Didn't bother to read the first post huh bud? The link to both PC and MAC versions is in the first post - right before it says both Windows and MAC versions are complete.
yea actually i did - Watched the newenglander the only issue is this was done couple years ago and the newer versions of basecamp are significantly different as are garmin express
Go to the first post and click on the link. That will bring you to the Tutorials. The Video is NOT the tutorial.
The solution for initiating Google Earth (Pro also) into BaseCamp is solved over at:
Basecamp, Mapsource, Google Earth problem
Once I got it right it opens and runs Google Earth now.
I've spent around 40 hrs. or so trying to learn Basecamp. Never was able to plan route and have my Zumo 590 follow it. $800 Zumo sits in my closet and I use RidewithGPS, which is free, on my smartphone.
I have a 478 with CN 2011.4 maps installed on it. But I do not have the DVD.
For custom route building purposes:
If I use Basecamp and connect the 478 to my pc, does BC display the maps installed on the GPS unit or does it need maps also installed to my PC hard drive like Mapsource does ?
Basecamp SHOULD see the maps on the 478 when it's connected. It'll be slow but should work. (Caveat: it worked like this when I connected my old SP but that's been quite a while ago)
Is there a way to force Basecamp to allow you to create an off road segment of a track?
Basecamp routes use profiles to set navigation preferences and avoidances. When a trip segment changes those preferences, then you need to break the trip into a separate route. So the best approach in those cases is to create a route to the off-road segment, and upon arrival, start the offroad segment route. You can then resume the previous route, or have a continuing route in memory. Forcing Basecamp to do an off-road route is not that hard as long as preferences and avoidances are properly set, however you may need more via or way points.
another way that i just found to do this was making a path in google earth and saving it as a kml file, then importing it into base camp. i never knew about doing this until i read above about someone else not understanding the program and software. this google earth kml import thing is a game changer for me... completely awesome.
You can in fact do it in BaseCamp and have multiple segments of one route contain different activity profiles but the Tutorial, (which is after all what this thread is about) does not go over the use of different activity profiles.
I can log into garmin express in my browser, but when i go to the first part where you log in using the tool bar in basecamp, it take my user name and pw then asks for a display name for myself and then tells me i cannot connect. if i cancel out then go to create an account it pulls up a browser screen and signs me in on that. should I just go forward or do I have a glitch that will hurt me down the road? It appears im never signed in on basecamp program im using…
Is the link in the first post valid? I need this tutorial, but get a not found message when hitting the link?
