Basecamp Version

Post by khunpaul »

Many of us have long resisted upgrading BC from 4.6.2 to 4.7.3 due to the Google Earth link.
Now that link has gone is there any other reason not to update? Or conversely is there any good reason to update?

As 4.6.2 continues to work for me I'm not planning to update, my advice would be if it's working for you then there is little point in updating as later versions had nothing added to benefit users in my opinion, it was more to do with complying with GDPR than anything else although those with the XT should update as there were specific updates to cater for the XT.

I just checked my Basecamp Version to see how out of date I am and it's at 4.7.3 and I didn't even know it

No, I'm afraid those days are now gone. The work around is to export your route as a .kml file and import that into GE.

I have seen many people reference to GE and accessing it from Basecamp

I have never used that feature so what exactly does it do?

It shows the data in Google Earth, whether it's routes or tracks or waypoints. In GE you can look at the terrain and street view if you want to. Very convenient to check details of your routes etc.
