About The Author

Michael Bloemeke has been active outdoors since his childhood. Growing up on the outskirts of a village in southern Germany, nature was never far away. The desire to travel and to orient himself and navigate ourished with an increasing activity radius.
With his four wheel truck he went through southern European back country, over exposed alpine roads from the world wars to the Atlas Mountains in Morocco.
Canoe trips on lakes, rivers and salt water and hiking on foot even in the winter with snowshoes, brought more adventures and experiences.
Meanwhile, the long-time dream of owning a sailing boat came true, which posed new navigational challenges.
Since he was in contact with GPS and users since 1995, he offers seminars to learn planning trips an navigate with GPS. So when Garmin brought up BaseCamp, he wrote a book to introduce his clients in the use of BaseCamp. First the book was written in german, later it was translated into englisch.

Hi Michael,

Your manual is super! I have worked through in 3 days, helped me a lot. Previously I’ve only worked with MapSource, because I’m not coped with Base Camp, now I no longer need MapSource.
Thank you for the effort you’ve done with it and you expect to have doing!

Hello Michael, congratulations on the wonderful book. I am always amazed at how many emails I have received since the purchase and I wonder how that is to cope with time at all.
Thanks in any event,
greeting Jochen
Peters opinion about the Base Camp Manual:

Hello Michael,
I answer a bit late, because my PC had a HD crash. Now the system is running again and also the Garmin topo maps could be reactivated. So far, so good.
Well, I have this Base Camp Handbook bought, thinking: for a Pdf file a juicy price. Now that I have read something into it, I see that it’s more than a few drought-written pages. Many still unknown for me, applications, tips and notes are shown, which I find very useful.
Unfortunately I do not have the time to concern myself intensively. So I slowly work my way through the manual and try to apply the demonstrated capabilities in practice.
As far as I entered, I would like to say: It is a good buy, the Base Camp Handbook brings me something and is worth its price.
Otherwise I thank you for the nice contact, wish you and your families a “Good Time”, “Happy Holidays” and “A Happy New Year”.

Many greetings from the Moselle Peter

    I paid for Version 3.3.3 (in August 2014 I think) and haven’t finished reading it yet.
    Now you have released an update – do I have to buy it again please?
    Thank you,

    Michael, I’ve found that the manual is full of info that I was unaware of. It has been quite useful. There are some awkward phrasings in the English translation but nothing that can’t be worked out. I think I’ll find it useful for some time to come.

    Hi Michael,

    First of all my apologies for not getting back to you earlier. Kind of busy here…

    Wel, the first impressions are very good indeed. Because of being too busy I have not done very much yet but the first attempts to use the software (by following the manual) are succesful. The one thing I have appreciated a lot is a decent explanation of the various ‘units’ in the software. Most of us do know that Microsoft Word is about text (well hopefully so) and that Navigation software is about … well navigation.

    However, not knowing the difference between waypoints, tracks and routes is a handicap to start with. I found it very useful to read about those before even starting to use the software. The manual clearly demonstrates that the author – yourself in other words – has taken the time to look into the head of the first time reader/user.

    Excellent work but have not had the chance to fully dig into it. Dark and cold wintermonths are on their way so it won’t be long anymore.

    Best regards from sunny (it is actually!) Belgium,

    Michael, I have tried three times to make my way through your manual and I think it is just as overdone and just as confusing as all the other manuals/websites. The first 84 pages are of no use to me. I am not interested in your life history. All I am looking for is a short, simple explanation of how to do a basic route and download it to my GPS. Just something short and simple. For what I want your manual is 95% too much detail that I would never use. I have gone over the part for making a route and transferring to my GPS and still find your manual too complicated. I am going back to the MapQuest routing website or the Harley Davidson Route Planner website. As I said, all I wanted was how to do a Point A to Point B route. Base Camp just has too much clutter and is too labor intensive. Out of the 175 pages I only needed 12, the rest was of no use to me. If you had a short version on just how to do a route and transfer to a GPS I would give it a better review but for me, it was just too much fluff.

    I bought your manual in 2012 and found it wasn’t Mac friendly, the versions have diverged even more as of 2015. Do I buy a new version or update the old?
