    Default route planning software for linux

    What are the best options for route planning software for Linux based OS? Preferably something similar to basecamp, where you can import tracks for Africa? I was thinking I would run basecamp in WINE, but I can't seem to get wine up and running. SO if there is an emulator you know of that will run basecamp, that will also be ideal.

    Looking forward to some answers before I pull my hair out

    I had a quick look: Navit that uses Open Street Maps?

    There is a thread somewhere here where I (almost) got Basecamp working in wine. It won't though. There are a couple of options, but for Garmin, I would seriously just consider using KVM or VMWare Player and running a virtual windows machine with BaseCamp.

    Going to give NAVIT a try, and will then look into using a virtual machine to run basecamp.

    No wonder I struggle with Basecamp, I am obviously not having enough WINE?? :-)
