Basecamp now supports live tracking (with a catch...)

See: http://garmin.blogs.com/softwareupdates/2012/08/garmin-basestation.html

Basecamp will now show your position... but you need to have an Astro, Alpha or Rino gps to connect. Now if they would only allow you to connect other types of USB devices, this would be the answer to what many people have wanted...

Garmin Basestation

The latest version of Garmin BaseCamp introduces a handy new feature for your tracking handhelds: Basestation. With Basestation, every update received from other devices by your tracking handheld is sent to BaseCamp, allowing you to track yourself, your dogs, and your contacts on your computer. This can free your hands and allow you to see more of the map on a bigger screen. You might find Basestation ideal for a variety of situations, including tracking dogs at hunting competitions or coordinating search and rescue or fire fighting operations.

Supported Handhelds

Astro 320
Alpha 100
Rino 600 series

To ensure Basestation compatibility on these devices, make sure you have the latest software from WebUpdater. BaseCamp must be at version 4.0 or later.
