Do you own a Garmin® GPS with USB connection? So a model of the Dakota®, Oregon®, GPSMAP®, Astro®, Montana®, Monterra®, Edge® 800, Zumo (Harley, BMW-Navigator etc.) or the new eTrex® 10 - 32 series. Then you need BaseCamp® to exchange data between the PC and the GPS receiver without errors.
BaseCamp is the free GPS planning software from Garmin. Of course, you can just as well use the other outdoor GPSs that are suitable for data exchange with USB, such as eTrex Legend, Vista, GPSMAP 60 and 76 series, with BaseCamp. You can even plan tours for Falk models with BaseCamp.
The BaseCamp manual as pdf. You can download and read the BaseCamp manual on your PC, Mac or iPad, as well as on your tablet computer.
The functions of the icons and menu commands are explained in detail. Map management and how to load maps into the GPS. Unlocking map products from Garmin® and other manufacturers.
The BaseCamp manual is the perfect guide to creating waypoints, routes and tracks. I explain where the respective data is stored in the GPS receiver. In addition, I show you in various instructions how to secure your data so that they are not accidentally destroyed.
You will learn how to find addresses, geocaches or POIs in a simple way. Plan your tours on the map stored on your micro SD card. Learn how to plan routes quickly and directly to your destination with this guide. You'll learn how to view your data in Google Earth.
Thanks you for your emails, 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 PC, 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.
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

Dear Michael !
First of all, thank you very much for the book !
I am very satisfied with the book.
You are introduced step by step to the individual chapters and functions and made familiar not only with Basecamp, the map handling but also with the navigation system.
I have now started to work through it and can now handle my Dakota 20 better.
The first year with the device was actually just pure frustration. It got to the point where I never picked it up again.
(I'm 71 years old and not everything comes as easily to me as it does to young people).
And the Garmin hotline is sometimes staffed by people who aren't quite sure of what they're doing, especially when it comes to autorouting.
The maps I have are Topo Deutschland V3 and Transalpin.
At the moment I'm planning a few cycle routes around Regensburg as a test for our "Havelradweg" tour from Havelberg to Ankershagen.
I'll get back to you as soon as I've had more experience.
In any case, thank you very much for this documentation, which really helps a lot.
With kind regards

Your manual is just great - I'm glad I bought it.
Unfortunately, BaseCamp has really overwhelmed me.
the darkness. Unfortunately I don't have as much time as I would like.
But - it will work out! Thank you very much for the great product.
If I have any questions, I will contact you. (It's a good feeling to have such a possibility up your sleeve!)
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,
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
