I have found the following tutorial on Garmin Basecamp tutorials. I did not review the contents but is of the opinion that it will help you to understand this matter better

The original link is
forums.bmwmoa.org/showthread.php?74203-L...Camp-Tutorial-Videos


During the 2014 MOA Rally BaseCamp seminar, Dan Townsley mentioned these videos for beginners. I am listing these Youtube videos for your use. The only intend is to get you over the learning curve of BaseCamp. As you will note, these are non-professional videos produced by myself with screen recorder software. Also please note while the lessons date back to late 2013, BaseCamp has updates very often and I try to add Nuggets of information to keep current.

Using Window 8.1 - Zumo 660 -

I hope they are helpful. I have a discussion forum with some other very versed volunteers located at: forums.delphiforums.com/garminbasecamp/start

Each video can run from 2 to 15 minutes...

Lesson 2 - Data storage for Garmin BaseCamp

As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons...
Avoid loud and aggressive persons - they are vexations to the spirit.
