Moving my route with Basecamp

Post by iWIng »

I have been using the Zumo 550 with Mapsource for years. I just bought the Zumo XT and am getting used to Basecamp. One thing I haven't figured out to do is once I create a route, if I want to edit it I can't grab it to move it to a different road. I've tried the select tool like Mapsource but no go. What am I missing?
TIA

Do you mean you want to rubber band a route? BaseCamp works differently to MapSource so you need to relearn what you do. You might find this useful

You can rubber band a route by pressing alt and then click with the hand tool.

Ahhh, I see. Got it! Thanks for the tip, and I'll do some reading. As the saying goes, RTFM. :lol:

That's not always the case anymore.... not many are making manuals, and the ones that are don't seem to put enough information in them to actually be useful. :roll:

That is true. Garmin, Sena, et al manuals seem to be written by people who think their audience knows as much about the product as the developers/engineers/programmers. They assume the user has their expertise.

But, I'm segueing off topic on a personal complaint.

A friend of mine uses REVER which I have also then uses GPS Bable to load it to the GPS. Anyone try that? It's not working for me.
