    Learn Garmin BaseCamp 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.

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

    Don - do you have to speak Alabaman to watch these videos?

    Seriously - good work on these

    (Have you tagged them so they're easy to find on YouTube?)

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

    Don, I just got a new bike with a NAV V GPS. I just downloaded BaseCamp and will use your videos to learn the program. Thanks for your tutorials!

    Ian, When I started I wanted to share with the motorcycle community and really didn't have a clue about the interest or much about YouTube, therefore I chose to share with forums that I am member... POI Factory, MTF, local clubs...but after Dan mentioned the videos in the Q&A part of the presentation when someone ask if there was a "BaseCamp tutorial for dummies" He recommended my series.. ... Now I can take that several ways.... and several ask for the links after the session, I decided to include them here... I still prefer to answer questions about BC issue on my forum rather than hopping around to many forums.

    I also have the Learn Garmin BaseCamp forum as well with some great guys helping.....and I have several that have subscribed to my Yourtube channel...

    Got couple sessions scheduled, Curve Cowboy Reunion next week in Chattanooga and another session in September at Ironhorse with MTF.

    Now, you don't have to speak Alabaman, but you must like boiled okra and cornbread and of course grits. Oh, I can't talk any slower on the videos either....

    I must admit this has been a learning process for me as well, but a collection of ideas from many folks across several forums.

    Just hope it help someone get over the learning curve... Dan did it for me out in Salem last year...where the idea was born..

    Randy, hope they do help... the Nav V is loaded with many great features. During the MOA Rally in St Paul, Dan Townsley gave a presentation of BaseCamp and the Nav V ...

    With you Nav v connected and BaseCamp and the V do the tech handshake, your ready to open many of those features.... Hope these tutorial will give you a start with this great mapping software... BaseCamp is getting better with each update and I can attest they do listen to ideas about issues and bugs on their developer's page...granted the updates do take time but I have seen two updates that my group suggested.
