This is an invitation to those wishing to Learn Garmin BaseCamp.
I have created several Tutorial videos that begin with a beginning level and move forward to more advanced levels, currently there are 15 videos. Should interest continue and with input from others...we will move forward with more advanced methods to use Garmin BaseCamp and your Garmin GPS to create data, routes, waypoints and POI for your motorcycle traveling adventures.
Garmin Mapsource was great, I loved it...but things change...Garmin has not updated MapSource since Oct 2010...and will be phrased out. As long as you continue to use your present computer, present GPS you can continue to use MapSource, however with any new updates, upgrades, new computer or GPS unit...one day you will find that it not longer works.
Garmin BaseCamp is free download, works with Garmin GPS units....once connected it shares the technology of the connected GPS unit and deliver the proper data to that attached GPS. Many, including myself, feel there is a sharp learning curve to BaseCamp. The only intend of these videos is get you over the learning curve.
For the past few months, I have presented these videos in select groups and forums... I find myself running from forum to forum to answer questions and replies. Therefore, four or my friends from the MTF (Motorcycle Touring Forum) who have great knowledge about Garmin BaseCamp have joined together to create a discussion forum.. Learn Garmin BaseCamp. The forum is located on Delphi Forums, a free use forum...the link below will direct you to that forum. Please look at the Welcome folder to find information and tutorial video on how to use the Delphi Forum.
Join, register, create profile and be a part of the discussion. Invite your friends to join the learning experience.
