You can to go to garmin.com and download City Navigator maps for North America. These will have a lot more detail.How are you guys getting maps other than the world map? I don't have any county roads or anything but highways. Is there a map pack I need to be buying, and if so, which? I have a garmin eTrex 20

My GPS must remain connected to see the maps I have installed on it in Basecamp. As soon as I disconnect my GPS my U.S. TOPO disappears. I have heard of some saying theirs stays in Basecamp but I have not experienced that.When you hook your GPS to your computer while basecamp is open it should recognize whatever maps are loaded on your GPS and load them into Basecamp. When you update maps on your GPS later on it loads and unlocks them in Basecamp too.
Yep Basecamp is already installed. Tried to open the GPX file and it takes me through the installation go round. It is on a desktop and I think calling it an app is a windows 10 thing.If you already have Basecamp installed and you try to open a GPX file in it, I have no idea why it would be asking you allow changes to be made to app basecamp Are you using a Basecamp App, like a program for a mobile device, or the full version of Basecamp that you'd use on a desktop? I am not even aware of a Basecamp App (which means nothing though).
If I want to view a GPX file, I import it into Basecamp and just view it like any other track I might have. If you double click the file in the Windows File Explorer, it will automatically import it and open it, but you won't have any control over where it puts the track in your Basecamp folders/lists. That can get messy. So I like to open Basecamp first, then use the File-> Import option so I can control where it goes.
WOW!!! I just went into BC and clicked import into my collection, found the file I wanted clicked it and.... you gotta be kidding me It all loaded up. Jeez Garmin really?That's just the way basecamp is. I bet I downloaded the same track/route 20 times trying to get it open because that was how it worked using Mapsource.
In Basecamp, it seem to require that I open BC and import the file. Otherwise it did exactly what you described.
Total pain and completely unintuitive(I know, not a real word).
Yep. Same here. There is discussion on the IB Motorcycle Riders FB page and I was about to point them here.So this is sad. It appears the forum linked in the first post is no more, and thanks to Photobucket, all the images in the quoted text are gone. Any copies of this tutorial somewhere else? I was going to give a link here to someone but I'm glad I checked before I sent it.
Wow thanks, that looks like a very detailed and clear tutorial. If I ever get a rained out day while traveling I now have reading material. Always wanted to use Base Camp for more than import/export but man is the learning curve steep.Some of the IB riders are raving about these help pages put out by the New England Riders so I'm just passing this along.
