Basecamp Startup Error

Post by VA3TWT »

Good day;
I get the following error when I start Basecamp (latest version):

"There was a problem communicating with the Zumo XT
An error occured while reading the following file(s):
gpx/current.gpx"

Anybody know what I did wrong and/or how to correct this error?

Thanks for any and all help;

Any hint as to where the file is that needs to be deleted? I don't see a gpx folder or current.gpx file. Using Windows 10.

It's in the GPX folder on your Zumo

I've always had better luck with the 595 by having the computer do one thing at a time. I open BaseCamp and wait. It's a slow process. After a few minutes I plug my device in and wait again. It's an even slower process this time. Sometimes it can take upwards of 6 to 8 minutes for everything to work correctly.
