Garmin cloud services and Adventures ending

FYI Garmin Cloud services and Adventures will be discontinued after May 24th, 2018. Users can access this feature through the published date to retrieve their data. Users who wish to sync their data to a third party Cloud storage service may use the Garmin BaseCamp application by modifying the Database Options in BaseCamp to point it to a folder under the Cloud storage service root.

    Just like the Whereigo app for geocaching, this Adventures concept for GPS recreation was a fun idea but never really took off. And you almost never hear anything any more about Pokemon Go.

    Just now received the following e-mail from Garmin. Kind of funny, the subject line says "Updates Are Coming to HomePort and BaseCamp" so I thought "Cool, it must be a pretty big update for them to send an e-mail". But when you open it, the real message is "Cloud storage and Adventures are going away". ;)

    Also note that they say you must take action before May 21 and not May 24 as posted above.

    Updates Are Coming to HomePort and BaseCamp

    Next month, Garmin is releasing new versions of HomePort™ and BaseCamp™ that provide improved data security. At that time, Garmin will retire the Cloud Storage option. Be sure to export your user data from Garmin Cloud Storage before May 21, 2018. In addition, BaseCamp™ allows you to configure your favorite cloud storage provider as a replacement so you can keep your favorite waypoints in the same place you store your other important files. Please note, data will no longer be available from Garmin Cloud Storage after May 21, 2018. Detailed instructions for exporting your user data can be found in our FAQ.

    If you used BaseCamp with Garmin Adventures™, thank you for your participation in our online community for the past 5 years. It’s with sorrow we announce the end of Garmin Adventures. Any adventures you have created in BaseCamp will remain on your local computer but will be removed from the online community after May 21, 2018. You will still be able to create Garmin Adventures on your computer and load them to your Garmin device. See our BaseCamp Support Center content if you need assistance.

    For HomePort users, Garmin offers an alternative to manage your waypoints, routes and other user data, without the need for the computer. The new ActiveCaptain® app, available for both Apple® and Android™ mobile devices, lets you create and sync waypoints and routes between your mobile device and your compatible chartplotter and much more. Learn more about ActiveCaptain today.
