Is there any way to have Radius rings on Mapsource or Basecamp

You can set proximity alerts if that's what you mean?

It would be nice to have some kind of drawing tools like a radius or even a line tool.
I use the tracking tool to create a circle around an area I would like to avoid. I don’t load it on to my gps, I only use it as a tool when I am creating a route.
For example, I will draw a straight line (with the tracking tool) from where I live to let’s say half way across the country.
Then I create a route to my liking to get me to point ‘b’.
It helps when I zoom in to be able to see where I want to go and I try to stay somewhat near the line.
Similarly I make a giant circle (with the tracking tool) around an area that I want to avoid.
It’s quick and easy. I think MapSource used to have line and circle tools.

I don't recall MS having anything like you describe but the proximity alert would show a ring around the waypoint.

Basecamp does provide for creating avoidance areas as you described although it does not provide circles, rather rectangular areas.
