May 10, 2014 from 8:00-10:30 AM - BaseCamp Basics Class (for Windows computers)
Post date: Apr 30, 2014 1:19:13 AM
We will be conducting a BaseCamp Basics Training Class on May 10th in Richardson. Mark Jensen will be the instructor.
May 10, 2014 8:00-10:30 AM. * Breakfast from 8:00 to 8:30 followed by the class from 8:30 to 10:30. We will start the class promptly at 8:30.
* Food purchase is required for the use of the room.
Please be prompt.
This will be a basic class that I will try to keep as simple as possible for using the BaseCamp program to create riding routes. Please bring your Garmin unit but leave your computers at home. Trying to work on your computer during the class will just add confusion and cause you to miss some of the information that is more important. I will try to have some extra computers (I would prefer 3 or 4) so we can set up in smaller groups and go over some hands-on Q&A.
1- Download and install BaseCamp on your computer. (http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4435)
2- Download and install Garmin Express on your computer. (http://software.garmin.com/en-US/express.html)
Are your maps up-to-date? Do the maps on your computer match the maps on your device? You should confirm these potential issues in advance.
One thing to remember...you will not retain this information if you do not spend some time using the program. Practice, practice, practice! The more reps you get the better you will be at working with the software.
