Multiple PCs - Basecamp Sharing of Routes

Post by maddscot »

Is there a way to share or sync my library of routes created in Basecamp with other PCs that I use?

Current Condition:
I use two primary laptops one for work, and one for personal use. I use my personal laptop for planning and creating routes/trips in Basecamp along with a library of folders (Local, "Xname" Trips as needed for multiday) with related Lists under these folders. There are times when I only have access to my work laptop and of course when using Basecamp these are not in the library as the data is local to the PC/Laptop it was created on.

Is there a way to sync up data with Basecamp? What I have done is send .gpx file via email or stored via online drives (OneDrive or Google) and then have access to them but was wondering if there is an easier way that Basecamp items can be "sync'd".

Thanks much...

Some users create a BaseCamp database in 'the cloud' and link to that but that then requires internet access.

I sync mine simply by copying the 2 files that contain the data and the folder structure, these files are called AllData.gdb and Folder.gfi

If you search your devices you'll find where these files are located.

I've used Dropbox to sync two PCs. It works fine.

That's what I currently do. Edit/Options/General then create or select Dropbox in Database Options. Works a treat.
