    "A Sad Case of Bad Software..."

    December 31, 2013   |   By kidcad

    Version: Garmin BaseCamp 4.2.4

    Pros

    I can download the recorded tracks form my Garmin Fenix, and then get them onto Google Earth for viewing, but that's about the only useful useable feature so far.

    Cons

    Crashes on startup. Completely useless home map screen with no discernable location features.
    Wasted enough time already, and won't bother persevering. Garmin seem to have missed an amazing opportunity here - computer interfaces for mobile devices seem to be an essential part of viable business in the 21c, so maybe Garmin may not be around - the Nokia of navigation?

    Summary

    Don't waste your time like I have.

    "Not even worth a try - Shame on Garmin"

    July 04, 2013   |   By andrasheczey

    Version: Garmin BaseCamp 4.1.2

    Pros

    You can transfer your routes made by other softwares to your Garmin device

    Cons

    It is only built to create very simple point-to-point routes. If you need to create a more complex loop for example to bike 70 miles with 50 turns in it, the software is extremely difficult to use. And it is full of bugs: i.e.: if you need to stop drawing your Route, it is pretty much impossible to simply go back and continue. Editing already finished routes is not possible any simple way (sure you can add a waypoint as they show in their tutorial video, but again, if you have a route with hundreds of waypoints, you won't even know where to insert it). Many more problems simply too many to count.

    Summary

    Don't waste your time with this software, there are plenty of other very functional free softwares/websites that can do the job.

    "Waste of Time, really!!! Don not even read this review!"

    June 03, 2013   |   By PazAmericano

    Version: Garmin BaseCamp 4.1.2

    Pros

    Non! It just does not work!
    It crashes when I try to export a track to my Garmin device... every time!
    And that what works is useless!

    Cons

    This software is so bad, it should not be on the market to bother people and waste their time!!!

    I work with this program like twi times a year, since years... and each time I update everything because my last experience was so bad, I fist Update, maybe some things work now!
    Just to be frustrated after wasting 30min again on this program...
    And then I think of contacting the support... what I do not do, because this will result in more frustration... the Garmin Support belongs to the worst on earth!

    Summary

    Just leave all Garmin software be... the only thing that really works well is the Garmin ANT Agent...
    It connects to your Garmin, can work fine with Trainer-road and the Ant-Stick and Updates your Garmin Hardware.
    For everything else, there are much better things around.

    "Really disappointing"

    May 20, 2013   |   By Rick_Marin

    Version: Garmin BaseCamp 4.1.2

    Pros

    Can't think of any - free?

    Cons

    Well, the whole point of having a Garmin GPS is to navigate. Navigation requires maps. My device (Etrex 20) has a basemap, which is quite good. When I try to plan a route on BaseCamp all I can get is a very low detail basemap, with almost no features and no terrain detail. How can I use this?

    Summary

    No use at all unless you buy additional maps. I've wasted hours on this, and in the end decided to leave my Garmin at home and take a paper map for my next hike.

    "It's a poor deal even with the free pricing"

    April 25, 2013   |   By whodunitinc

    Version: Garmin BaseCamp 4.1.2

    Pros

    Difficult to say anything here but at least I didn't have to buy it!

    Cons

    Impossibly frustrating trying to use it. I have very often a need to input multiple waypoints before heading out on a trip. The search feature is terrible in that it can't be told to look in a specific geographic region or city. It's just a total mess and should be an embarrassment to Garmin. It's far faster to input my waypoints on the GPS unit, which is just stupid!

    Summary

    Terrible at any price, even free!

    "F#$%ing horrible software."

    April 15, 2013   |   By BaconStripsxx

    Version: Garmin BaseCamp 4.1.2

    Pros

    its free. Apart from that its basically useless to me. oh wait - the adventures is a cool feature. The rest of it sucks so badly I got online just to write a negative review about it after being unable to see any usable amount of details in it after 3 hours of messing around.

    Cons

    clearly just designed as a mechanism to sell their maps, cause its bloody useless by itself.

    Summary

    Piece of ****. Seriously.
    There are so many free detailed datasources online Garmin should link to some of them to give you basic route planning capabilities. The software is clearly designed to be so painful as to force people to buy mas to make any planning aspect of it actually useful.
    Get your act together guys. The hardware is great, priced reasonably. Even the software installed on the hardware is alright. What happened with the team that made this? Fire the Product Manager - or get one if you dont have one!

    "Garmin Base Camp experience"

    July 15, 2012   |   By ericsalin

    Version: Garmin BaseCamp 3.3.2

    Pros

    It's in color

    Cons

    What a piece of crap. The most unintuitive, cranky, time sucking worthless piece of software. I love my Nuvi GPS and I've used older Garmin software. It was klutzy but worked but this/?? I'm on a Mac so maybe...???? I have a PhD and am a bit of a computer geek......this is just not working. Colour me seriously frustrated after two hours. All I wanted was to make a simple route and download to my Nuvi. Damn I am so frustrated.

    Summary

    Good luck. Go to church. Hope you do better than I did.
