After releasing a major update to BaseCamp, we have turned a new page within the adventure world! You'll now look at your Garmin Outdoor Handheld device a little different. You'll see it not just as a reliable tool that gets you from point to point, not merely a rugged navigation aide that has kept you on track, nor simply something you take out with the family as a peace of mind. It will now be more of a diary, a record keeper of your experiences, epic journeys and weekend getaways. A way to share your adventures and allow those who were not with you to relive and experience those adventures again and again.
With Garmin Adventures you'll get a free, interactive way to share your hikes, bike rides, road trips in car or motorcycle, dives and more. Using BaseCamp, you can combine track logs, waypoints, geotagged photos , YouTube® videos and more into an adventure that gets published online. Your photo's and videos are either automatically placed on the map (when geotagged) or you can manually place them in the area you took them. You can then easily email a link to your adventure to friends and family, share it on social media sites or even post it in your favorite forums. BaseCamp even makes it easy to follow in the footsteps of other travelers by allowing you to search for and download adventures right to your compatible GPS device. Using BaseCamp will also allow you to leave comments on other's adventures and even rate them. Do you think you have an adventure worth Five Stars? Download or update BaseCamp today, and turn your journeys into real Garmin Adventures!
Also, in this update is Garmin BaseStation. With BaseStation, you can turn your laptop into a field command center for tracking multiple dogs and/or buddies (other Rino, Astro and Alpha GPS users). BaseStation allows you to view real-time GPS information, all on the larger display of your computer, with a compatible device serving as a router/antenna.
Hunters can go further and hunt safer; search and rescue teams can coordinate better; dog trainers can keep better track of their dogs. And it's all Garmin GPS based so it works where Internet and cell phones can’t go. If your computer is already loaded with Garmin BaseCamp for managing and integrating tracks, waypoints and routes onto detailed maps, then it's ready for BaseStation for live, real-time tracking.
