So now we no longer have to use babel to convert tracks? This can be done easily on Basecamp? Good info, i guess i need to give basecamp a whirl.
Hi, this is still Greek to me. Guess I need to devote some time to it. Please advise where to start from. :)

I would suggest you start by watching the official Garmin training videos.. Here is a link: http://www8.garmin.com/learningcenter/t ... /basecamp/

You will get to know a lot about tracks and routes etc

You can also check relevant videos on Youtube..
