It's interesting that when I download a GPX route it opens in Mapsource. It never shows on Basecamp which is also installed on my laptop :?

Thats because mapsource will be the default programme on the laptop

if you just right click then go to open with and choose basecamp it will open up

then recalculate the route ;)

I don't get that option Stu, when I left click the route it immediately opens in Mapsource. If I right click it gives me the "open link in new tab, new window" etc

Save the file to your PC. Open Basecamp. Click on File - Import into "My Collection".

Then just get it to recalculate the route (it will show as straight lines) and there you have it.

That worked, thanks Alan. I already had Basecamp open and it didn't give the option to Import to my Collection :D

By the way I would just like to point out if you ever get the chance this is a good little route

Taking in the ponerosa and horseshoe pass and a nice jaunt down the A5 which is good when its quiet 8-)

Thanks Stu, I did some of it a few years back. Got a mate who lives up that way and he often takes me on some interesting roads.
Cheers, Pete.
