Re: New Garmin Portal

Sorry, I meant the new "official" site. :D This one is just fine.

New Garmin Portal

Am I the only one who hates the new Garmin forum experience? Can't mark "read", no unread post search, no follow or ignore.

Re: Need a pencil

Open the route properties window of the route you want to re-join or extend. Activate the route tool (control r). Go to work.

To join two or more routes, open the route properties box of the first one and drag additions into the box in the order you want to add them.

Re: Waypoints, or Shaping points?

Waypoints are points that you create and name within the app. Right click on a POI or location on the map to bring up the context menu. Via points are created when you use the route edit tool (rubber band) to relocate a route to your needs. The point that's created is, for now, a "via point" that wi...

Re: Ugrade to 64 bit v4.8.2

My install(s) are working fine. Interesting to note though, the the title bar of the running app shows "Basecamp (Internal Release)" I wonder if someone jumped the gun releasing the app into the wild.

Re: Number of songs per device

At one time I had ~8000 on my 590 card using DoubleTwist to load them. Now about the same on my Nav 5 mSD card. The more you have the longer the unit needs to index them, to the point of appearing to be locked up. That's why I quit using the 128 gig card with my total 18k tune library on it. ;-)

Re: How to continue a route

I've said for a long time now, Do not create a route! Let me explain: Following this procedure will fix almost all of the issues people have with BaseCamp route creation. It's the way Garmin apps have always worked best dating back to the original MapSource. The point to point method was created by...

Re: Wired / Wireless Intercoms?

I recently went from a wired (StarComm) to a SENA 20 and for the most part I'm happy. The only flaw in the system is the SR10 module you need for wired peripherals such radar detectors and GMRS or Ham radio. Sometimes a bit glitchy. There <may> be an issue with water but a couple of short cloud burs...

Re: Learning and using Basecamp

What do you have installed for maps? This sounds like you don't have a routable map installed. That would explain a lot of your frustration.

I really am thick, how do I let BC create the route? On mine, it just shoves a straight line between the points.
