Sure, Basecamp is ok when you take the time to study it. And Ed Conde’s tutorials are among the greatest I’ve discovered. Basecamp does not help straight the newer zumo XT2 however the gpx information it produces work simply fantastic with it. There are some quirks that you just want to concentrate on. I’ve it operating on a small 2 in 1 laptop computer that matches in my panniers.
I am unable to say the identical of the opposite apps Garmin produces.
Discover app is ok as a route/tracks supervisor however horrible as a route growth software. Discover internet is even worse. Discover works with the zumo XT by means of the Drive app. Why in a roundabout way? Discover and Drive run on Android or iOS.
The most recent zumo XT2 makes use of the Tread app. Why not Discover or Basecamp? Who is aware of!
Third get together apps supposedly work fantastic with our Garmin gps. I’ve tried a few of them however have not discovered one that’s 100% passable. By app I imply both an precise Android app or an internet based mostly app. And opposite to Basecamp, to get full use of their functionalities it’s essential to purchase or subscribe a yearly payment.
The issue is sort of at all times the identical. The apps attempt to emulate what Garmin does. Garmin has its personal algorithms and maps. They (third events) use one thing completely different and attempt to make it work. Basecamp works as a result of it makes use of the maps in your Garmin gps. Generally they (third events) get it proper, however usually occasions they do not.
If that works for you, fantastic. It does not work for me. I, will keep on with Basecamp.
