Later the ratings lead to the Garmin Adventure portal, the well rated tours are listed
At the lower part of the library BaseCamp shows the connected devices. Data cards and
GPS receivers are listed as separate devices. To avoid mix-ups you should remove all unused data cards from your PC.
A right click on the GPS receiver opens a slightly dierent menu. Figure 0.0.34: Internal Device Storage
Here you also have the option to copy data etc. as explained under Library. Furthermore
you can Install Maps on the GPS or check directly for Device Software Updates. In the
rst case MapInstall opens with the pre-set receiver. In the second case Web Updater
opens. "Send To" enables you to copy data from the GPS to a list. With "Export" you can save data from the GPS directly. After a tour I create a
backup this way with the date as le name simply in order to save all WP and tracks
before a tour evaluation.
"Create Garmin Adventure ..." Opens a list of tracks on the GPS and oers to create
"Eject" closes the data and prepares the device to be disconnected from the computer.
Clicking on a map opens a window with the product information.
Inserted data cards are displayed under the GPS.
The menu for data cards inserted directly to the PC is almost identical.

DATA MANAGEMENT, LIBRARY AND MY COLLECTION
Saving Data onto the GPS receiver
For this simply drag a list or data set and drop it in the folder >connected GPS< / All
Data. The content is copied to the memory of the GPS. You can also right click onto
a list or element, select "Send To " and select the destination. In the same way you
can save data onto a memory card. You should be careful however, with prerecorded original Garmin data cards. Delet-
ing the wrong le on here can make the map product useless. Micro SD cards have no
overwrite protection. But there is the option to create a backup of the map set beforehand to be able to
revive the micro SD card. This map product however, can only be used on this specic
memory card. It is unlocked for the serial number of the memory card.
The GPS receiver can pull element from the internal memory or a data card.
The new versions of MapInstall recognize the prerecorded data cards and show a warning.
Editing Data on the GPS Receiver
Selecting the GPS in your library displays the therein contained elements in the data list
and on the map.
This means you can edit, delete, etc. as usual.
But there are no data lists on GPS receivers. Some receivers show categories in which
the elements are sorted according to the lists.
To disconnect the device from the PC you should prepare it with the "Eject" command,
otherwise data errors can occur. GPS receiver of the USB1 generation do not have to
Managing GPS Receivers of the USB 1.0 Generation
When connecting a GPS receiver of the 1.0 generation the screen doesn't look much
dierent than usual. However, right clicking onto the folder "All Data" opens a sub-
menu with a lot fewer options than with newer GPS models.

MANAGING GPS RECEIVERS OF THE USB 1.0 GENERATION
53Figure 0.0.35: "Show on Map" shows the items of the GPS memory on the map.
"Installing Maps on GPS ..." is described in section IV of chapter Maps. Figure 0.0.36: Delete elements is not available
To Delete Waypoints is only available via the menu at the GPS Receiver. The icons
for editing and creation of items are as long as we work grayed out in the GPS. These
options are not available at your disposal.
Then take the GPS and delete the data with >Menu< and >Reset<.
Now you can save the changed data from BaseCamp onto the GPS Receiver. Although
you can load BirdsEye images and CustomMaps into the memory of USB-1-GPS, it
cannot display them. There is also an error message when trying to transfer photos,
because they are not supported.

Map View and Toolbar
BaseCamp oers the option to view a map in 2D or 3D. Or both next to each other.
When planning routes I usually work in the two-dimensional view. But sometimes it is
quite interesting to see the map in 3D. On Windows XP 3D view is not available.
The map view icons in the toolbar oer Two dimensional
view, Three dimensional view, or both windows next to each other.
Menu - View - Map Views - Overview Map or the symbol opens and closes the
small Overview Map.
