QuoteNEW FEATURE: Lots of people rightfully are not happy that in BaseCamp/Mapsource you can only see one map at a time. That is because Garmin won't modify the programs to allow it. That stops you from seeing My Trails on top of other maps. My Trails is also not routable. I like using tracks and the follow track much better than a routable trail on the map. As of the July 28, 2014 version, you can now extract the trails for noncommercial personal use. Then you can import the tracks into BaseCamp and show them on top of other maps. It also allows you to use the tracks to send to the GPS to follow the track. It is a pretty simple process. The directions are in the Read Me file that is installed in C:\Garmin\My Trails. This only works on a PC. If someone can figure out a process for a MAC, let me know.

Quote from: Boyd on May 26, 2015, 08:50:20 AMI cannot solve the OP's exact problem of displaying the vector MN topo with the boundary waters overlay in Basecamp. I was suggesting some alternatives however. He could display the boundary waters overlay on top of the USGS 24k topo map of MN using Birdseye topo in Basecamp for example.
