    Re: Tracks4Africa during COVID-19

    Hi Henris,

    I am not aware of any Linux compatible Garmin software. Basecamp will run on Windows and Mac and Mapsource only Windows.

    Sorry for not being of more help.

    Hi,

    There are a lot of questions in your post, but let me try to answer as complete as possible.

    Re: T4A on new Garmin Overlander

    Hi Herman,

    I assume you are using a Windows PC? The problem we encounter is that this GPS does not want to connect to a Mac. So that means none of the Garmin tutorials will work. Some users...
