Duplicated route changes affecting original route

Post by yorky »

I have downloaded the new firmware, 5.9, and now if I duplicate a route and make alterations in Basecamp it also affects the original route.
Is anyone else having this issue??

Ooops, think this is in the wrong thread and should be in Basecamp/PC.
I can't see why an update to the XT would alter what Basecamp is doing, so I'm even more confused as it worked fine last week!!

It's been a long time but IIRC the DUPLICATE and COPY commands function differently.

They do, one allows changes without affecting the original, the other means changes in one are copied in the other.

Yes, that's correct.
DUPLICATE allows changes, COPY changes both the copy and original.
But I am DUPLICATING the route and yet any change I make is acting like a COPY.
As said I don't understand why as it was working perfectly last week.

I can't duplicate that, which version of BC are you using?

Thanks for the replies, I think I have sorted out what is happening.
The route I am working on is an 8 day trip, split into daily sections. The issue only seems to occur when I duplicate the route and try to move the last via point of one day which is also the first via point for the following day.
So I think it's my fault for trying to do something that Basecamp won't do. Does seem rather strange though as it prevents me from having an alternative plan for a nightly stop.

Yes, definitely my fault and definitely happening because of the shared via point. The solution is to add a different via point as the start point for the following day

Thanks all for your assistance :)
