Way to support your expensive GPS items. The link to update, got to an 8 year old app. thats not even runable on Catalina! Akward UI. I don't get any of the graphic shown is these preview pics! My cell phone has an app the does a better job! Stay away from Garmin!
I Try to tranfer my itinerary from My maps to base camp and the system freeze and closing down the app I don't know why BMW make buisness with garmin
I've had no issues since Garmin updated the app to support Catalina. Works as advertised and does what I need it do!
Frustrating. Like going back to the dark ages. Garmin can surely not be serious about this product?
I don't know if its the endless sesarching for express to find a connected device or the extremely long download times, but I think Garmin fired the high school kids who used to program the updates. It seems the Elbonians are the low bidders now and they have essentially abandoned their GPS line for wearables. No wonder everyone uses phones now with this lack of commitment.
Basecamp was an uninspiring platform before--far from user friendly, with an outdated interface--but it did the job for inputting GPS route and/or coordinate data onto my InReach Mini. Now the 32-bit software is no longer compatible with 64-bit macOS Catalina. I do not reccomend the app if you intend to keep your macOS up to date.
Like almost everybody else I find this product hidious and hard to believe that a Big Name company can put out such a failed product, year after year; that obvious don't care one bit about what we say. In contrast so many other apps for the Mac get better and better every year and a joy to use. It's a disgrace, really.
Many people don't like Basecamp, but I have never found an alternative for computer based routing that have the database capabilities, and recently I have been looking hard. I recently updated on Catalina to 4.8.8. That was a mistake. The program now fails to export files to an internal volume, even to backup your library. It was working fine at 4.8.7. Support was responsive but unwilling to do anything about it to research a work around to save my data. Basically said that SW develpment could not tell me what their install routine does inside the OS so I could get files from a Time machine backup to revert to the old version and save my data. Also support admitted thay don't have a mac! The development staff does obviously and apparently tried to "duplicate my problem", but never really answered my questions like if they had started at 4.8.7 and then did an update - I think only working with a fresh install (which would lose my data). Support at one time came back to me with a "fix" to do a backup, uninstall & re-install (first problem report was I coud not do a backup!). Then they said I should ask Apple about it...I'm now doing my own trials on another mac to try revert. But DO NOT UPDATE to 4.8.8
Using the latest verion (4.8.8) and it is extremely buggy. Application has aborted a number of times while using the Trip Planner. Overall the application seems like something from the 90's.
