You still have to juggle a lot of those small micro-SD cards to be able to see and find the correct map?
You are still getting lost, even while using your GPS because you are not getting the right information?
Unfortunately, it took me until today to send you a reply. Yes, after I had discovered the software BaseCamp for a more intensive browsing on GPS and installed it on my PC, your manual has certainly made it a lot easier to apply and use the basics of this software. The layout of this manual and documentation was very helpful to me! – A successful design in which I am not missing anything. The Data management and access to the data (tracks, routes, …) are now a lot easier in BaseCamp than I was used to when using MapSource, and thereforeI have created the data management directly in BaseCamp.
There is nothing to thank me for. Although nothing in life is obvious! I looked at the BASE CAMP Hand-book (the text), and find it very helpful in the planning and application of GPS data. The text is well written and easy to understand and implement. Of course it makes sense to take the knowledge presented in an “appetizers way”, but is quite feasible, because paper is so patient. So in a nutshell: Since you have created a good and useful Book for a reasonable price and made it available to interested parties and GPS freaks! Again – THANK YOU. And if there is something new in this direction, please let me know!
Michael Bloemeke has been active outdoors since his childhood. Growing up on the outskirts of a village in southern Germany, nature was never far away. The desire to travel and to orient himself and navigate ourished with an increasing activity radius. With his four wheel truck he went through southern European back country, over exposed alpine roads from the world wars to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco. Canoe trips on lakes, rivers and salt water and hiking on foot even in the winter with snowshoes, brought more adventures and experiences. Meanwhile, the long-time dream of owning a sailing boat came true, which posed new navigational challenges. Since he was in contact with GPS and users since 1995, he offers seminars to learn planning trips an navigate with GPS. So when Garmin brought up BaseCamp, he wrote a book to introduce his clients in the use of BaseCamp. First the book was written in german, later it was translated into englisch.

Your manual is super! I have worked through in 3 days, helped me a lot. Previously I’ve only worked with MapSource, because I’m not coped with Base Camp, now I no longer need MapSource.
Hello Michael, congratulations on the wonderful book. I am always amazed at how many emails I have received since the purchase and I wonder how that is to cope with time at all.
Hello Michael, I answer a bit late, because my PC had a HD crash. Now the system is running again and also the Garmin topo maps could be reactivated. So far, so good. Well, I have this Base Camp Handbook bought, thinking: for a Pdf file a juicy price. Now that I have read something into it, I see that it’s more than a few drought-written pages. Many still unknown for me, applications, tips and notes are shown, which I find very useful. Unfortunately I do not have the time to concern myself intensively. So I slowly work my way through the manual and try to apply the demonstrated capabilities in practice. As far as I entered, I would like to say: It is a good buy, the Base Camp Handbook brings me something and is worth its price. Otherwise I thank you for the nice contact, wish you and your families a “Good Time”, “Happy Holidays” and “A Happy New Year”.
I paid for Version 3.3.3 (in August 2014 I think) and haven’t finished reading it yet. Now you have released an update – do I have to buy it again please? Thank you, Howard Orrom
Michael, I’ve found that the manual is full of info that I was unaware of. It has been quite useful. There are some awkward phrasings in the English translation but nothing that can’t be worked out. I think I’ll find it useful for some time to come.
Wel, the first impressions are very good indeed. Because of being too busy I have not done very much yet but the first attempts to use the software (by following the manual) are succesful. The one thing I have appreciated a lot is a decent explanation of the various ‘units’ in the software. Most of us do know that Microsoft Word is about text (well hopefully so) and that Navigation software is about … well navigation.
However, not knowing the difference between waypoints, tracks and routes is…
