Waypoints, Tracks, and Routes
You can use BaseCamp to create Waypoints, tracks, and routes and save them to your computer, or to your GPS. Use the window on the left side of the screen in BaseCamp to manage your content.
- To create content to save on your GPS, make sure you have the "Internal Storage" folder selected.
- To create content to save on your computer, make sure you have the "My Collection" folder selected.
- You will be able to transfer content between the two devices after you create it.
- After creating a Waypoint, track, or route, you can edit it by right-clicking it on the map, or in the window in the lower left corner of the screen.
New Waypoint: Place a Waypoint anywhere on the map.
New Track: Click any two points on the map to create a track between them. Right-click when you're done placing points.
New Route: Click any two points on the map to create a route between them. Right-click when you're done placing points.
*NOTE: If you have a routable map installed on your computer or GPS, you can use the route tool to plan a driving route. Our maps are designed for outdoor recreation, so they are not routable.
If you're not seeing the information you expected to see, make sure your detail is set to the appropriate level.

- The detail level drop-down menu should appear on the left side of the tool bar.
- Select the appropriate detail level.
- The higher the detail level, the more information will be visible on the map.
