    Why wouldnt it work with winxp?
  • sussamb 621 Points
    As per this post from the developers on the Garmin Basecamp forum:

    Due to the ever dwindling XP user base, the fact that Microsoft will no longer support the OS after April, and the prevention of using new .NET and other programming features by holding back .NET framework versions, it makes the best business sense for our team to begin dropping support for XP. We will continue to watch and maintain issues on 4.2 and will release bug fixes for critical issues going forward, but we will not be releasing 4.3 on XP.

    Why go to other sites where you can't be sure exactly what you're downloading? You can get the Mac version directly from Garmin:

    http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=4449

    You should be able to get it from the Mac App Store, but that is still only offering 4.3.1 for some reason.

    4.3.3 for the mac has been pulled, latest official update for the mac is 4.3.1
  • sussamb 621 Points
    edited June 2014
    Apparently the reason why 4.3.3 doesn't appear is that Garmin want folks to download 4.3.1 ... it will then auto-update to the latest, which is 4.3.3.

    Seems a strange way to do it.
  • Boyd 1725 Points
    In the past I have noticed that the Mac App Store version is behind the version that you can download directly from Garmin. Maybe this has something to do with the time needed for Apple to approve new software at the app store?

    Basecamp just notified me that up to 4.3.4.0 was available for update so I downloaded and install went ok and basecamp says the update was completed but upon rebooting it offers to update again and when selecting the 'about' button it says the old version is installed.
    Any suggestion?

    Link gives 404 error
  • I'm seeing on other forums where The latest Base Camp isn't working for some folks with windows 10. How long have we known about win 10????????? Garmin has had nothing but trouble since day one with Base Camp. Time to trash it and update Mapsource to work on win 10
  • sussamb 621 Points
    edited February 2016
    Just to balance this there are a few folks having issues, but many not with Win10. Like every program sometimes it's the computer at fault, one guy having issues had forgotten he'd done a windows update and hadn't rebooted as required. Once he'd done that BaseCamp installed without issue :)

    Having said that 4.6.2 has just been released to cure what Garmin describe as a 'common crash' on some systems, hasn't happened on mine ...
  • privet01 142 Points
    I don't use Basecamp often, but I have Win 10 on my machine and Basecamp works fine for me. I did have an install issue with the latest update 4.6.2. While updating from the basecamp install updates option it detected basecamp running and automatically closed it...... without asking if I needed to save anything...... and soon thereafter failed claiming basecamp was still running. A second attempt failed claiming another installer was still running. However "third times a charm" after restarting windows to ensure all spurious processes would not be running, it successfully installed and works correctly.

    Though I admit I use and like the old MapSource program slightly more. Perhaps it's because my old marine gps's require it.

    As far as Windows 10 goes, for me this is the best version of Windows yet and in fact many of my old Win XP games work better on Win 10 than they did on both WinXP and Win7. And this is physically the same machine that I ran WinXP and Win7 on. Now my biggest OS problems are with my Macbook pro.
  • Sat down today to really dig into BC on the Win 10 machine. Thought I would work on the short routes, 150 to 200 miles, for this summer's trip. Turned out to be a time waster as one route I never could keep it from routing me through a parking lot. A simple click and drag in Mapsource. The latest version of BC still won't launch Google Earth at the closest zoom level like Mapsource. It's still the whole selected route or nothing. Maybe some day this will be a useful program but not at present. Or does some one out there have a real users manual?
  • sussamb 621 Points
    Try here for some help http://www.newenglandriders.org/Learn_BaseCamp.htm

    It's really easy when you know how. BaseCamp will 'rubber band' also just like Mapsource.
