What is the benefit of Basecamp?
« on: January 25, 2010, 03:17:28 PM »
I have snow leopard, and use roadtrip (mac equivalent to mapsource) and I was wondering what the point of basecamp is? I know it is used for topo maps you buy that have DEM shading for units like the Oregon, or others. I have a gpsmap 60csx, and I use the amazingly sweet and free topos here. Can the free ones here even be used on basecamp? is the only benefit the DEM shading (since gpsmap 60csx can't see it anyways) am I completely wrong is is there no real point to basecamp?

P.S. sorry if there is a similar thread I missed somewhere.

You will need BaseCamp v2.1.1β for Macintosh or later.

Is there a special way to load them on? I have the topos in roadtrip, but when I bring up basecamp all that it shows is the base map?

So is there a way to create the DEM shading on the topos of this website?

Not really, but they will work with the built in DEM shading in their Oregon, Colorado or Dakota units.
