Hello Michael,

Thanks you for the emails from April 15th and 20th 2012, which surprised me while I was enjoying your help at the same time.

Unfortunately, it took me until today to send you a reply.
Yes, after I had discovered the software BaseCamp for a more intensive browsing on GPS and installed it on my reciever, your manual has certainly made it a lot easier to apply and use the basics of this software.
The layout of this manual and documentation was very helpful to me! – A successful design in which I am not missing anything.
The Data management and access to the data (tracks, routes, …) are now a lot easier in BaseCamp than I was used to when using MapSource, and thereforeI have created the data management directly in BaseCamp.

Nevertheless, I will continue to work with MapSource because I am using this software since about 4 years when I purchased my GPSMAP 60CSx practitioner and both versions used together is great, because the complement each other. I own the maps in CityNavigator Europe (mainly for hiking’s and related activities in foreign countries) and the routable topology Germany. But I didn’t‘ have too much time to do more than processing the revision (refinement) of some tracks, there are currently other things that took priority.

Within the next couple of weeks, when the bike and walking season starts, what we have done for several years now also abroad (Cyprus, Corfu, Majorca, Andalusia, Algarve, ..) and we are going to continue it with the aforementioned issues more intensively. The recorded tracks can be so easy integrated and applied into Google, and you can then use it for photobooks and DVD‘s. A beautiful addition.

For further technical information for the aforementioned applications and notices for updates I am forever grateful. When will the MapSource manual be out?

There is nothing to thank me for. Although nothing in life is obvious! I looked at the BASE CAMP Hand-book (the text), and find it very helpful in the planning and application of GPS data. The text is well written and easy to understand and implement. Of course it makes sense to take the knowledge presented in an “appetizers way”, but is quite feasible, because paper is so patient.
So in a nutshell:
Since you have created a good and useful Book for a reasonable price and made it available to interested parties and GPS freaks!
Again – THANK YOU.
And if there is something new in this direction, please let me know!
With kind hiking regards, Paul

Hi Michael,

I’m super satisfied with your book. I have learned a lot from it and will learn a lot from it. As you know I am biking a lot and make my own routes all for this year. I like to bike cross the Alps and later to the south of France.
I create my routes using OSM maps or with the bike-planner 7.0 witch is convertible to Garmin and is valid for the whole of Europe. Furthermore, I will use my navigation even for hiking in the Vosges and plan and create my routes.

Bobby K. wrote Hello Michael

I just started my involvement with the book. I printed out everything. What I’ve read so far, however, is great and has really helped me out.

Tips and tricks about the background of Various menu items help tremendously to understand the software better.

A lot fo thing about the Software could use a more user-friendly design. It is a bit stale. But that would be up from Garmin. (For example, the left-and right-moving with the Logitech mouse wheel left / right switches, etc.)

We all just become so demanding, right.

So thank you again for this great book and if I find something that is worth mentioning, you’ll get an email from me.

Marc G. wrote: Hello from Luxemburg

Your book is great, for me it is just missing the exact description for planning a walking a route from the first step all the way to a destination with waypoints. From the first step to completion.

Greetings Marc

Thank you for the positive feedback. I am currently working on the manual to adjust the version 3.3.1 and it will describe in detail the route planning.

You will be notified by newsletter when the new version is ready. Greetings Michael

Josef K. wrote: Hello Michael

I have just now looked at your e-book and realize you really can find and learn everything here. You should sell your e-book on Amazon, nothing better is on the market at this point,

I am very excited!!

Since today the new version 3.3.1 BaseCamp is on my computer. Because I only speak a little bit English, I would need some information in German for this new update, will you add this in an additional eBook?

Thank you and have a great week.

Christian from Vienna (Austria) wrote: Hello Michael,

think it’s great that you proactively maintain contact with your customers!!!

Unfortunately, I have a lot on my plate right now – professionally, I was just now able to start reading your eBooks. I now reached page 34 and realized that there are still some differences to my current version of BaseCamp (3.3.1) when will there be an update coming out of the eBook?

Nevertheless, I think your eBook is awesome and I am working on each chapter (I downloaded already BirdsEye via a map view of Laxenburg castle)!

Until now I could only find 2 sentences that seem to be incomplete / or not meaningful — >>> I will mark up prints and scan all comments / suggestions for correction directly to PDF (unless it is locked!)

I also received your e-mail about a new download with shorter / simpler passwords, (How long do I have to download this version because I would like to continue working on the old one at the moment)?

That was a short interim report from a real fan of your eBooks!

I’ll probably also will buy the eBook about “Custom Maps”!

PS: I am a project manager for the Supervisory Board papers and the Annual Report of Siemens AG Austria, I can really assess that work that you do — Kudos to you!

So long and see you soon,

Christian

– I am currently working on the revision of the MapSource manual, after that I will revise the BaseCamp manual and adjust it to the current version.
