navigator v quick question
« on: July 15, 2016, 04:47:30 PM »
hi all well my new steed arrives next weekend and I've also treated myself to a navigator v which will arrive along with the bike , question is i have a mac computer (iMac ) and i wondered do i have to down load basecamp on to my mac or does this load onto my mac when i first plug my nav into my computer ????  or do you get a disc with the nav-v to load it on to the computer ??? as you may have already guessed I'm no computer wiz kid, also i presently have a tom-tom rider with lots of routes stored on it , how can i transfer these routes from the tom-tom to the nav-v / into basecamp???? no dow't i will end up losing these knowing me, be much appreciated if someone could offer some advice to a luddite like me,
cheers

Download Garmin express, don't bother with Basecamp, it's utter shite.

Then plan all your routes on http://www.motogoloco.com

Glad your happy pal, Brighton are good, Manchester..live upto their rep unfortunately.
I'd consider Preston for service, that's where I go, quick blast up the 61, at the door in 30 mins. Waited for my first service which took about 1 hr 30, had to go back with a blown fork seal, no myther, provided me a R9T thingy and was done and dusted in 24 hrs.
Had a good ride yesterday, i'll stick a link on shortly, nice roads, good pace  :152:
Mine was supposed to land Friday night, ended up being Saturday morning due to M6 traffic, all good.  :152:

I've spent hours, probably days if I total it up, trying to fathom Basecamp, and can't get on with it. On motogoloco, I was planning routes in minutes last night, and have them on my nav already! Life's too short!

Hi Rich it sends me round the bend to "pun intended" I still use AutoRoute but I'm going to have to use basecamp soon as AutoRoute is no longer supported  :003:

I did start looking at the Garmin basecamp tutorial  "http://www8.garmin.com/learningcenter/training/basecamp/" but like you went life's to short.
After over thirty years behind the bars, I’ve still not done it all or seen it all.

Try motogoloco, it's a revelation. I can even plan routes after a few glasses of vino!

Or try MyRouteApp the premium edition can be used with the same maps as the Nav V so you know it will route the same way.
