    Default Are there any user training courses in Cape Town for Montana 650 & BaseCamp??

    Just bought a Montana 650 on recommendation and installed BaseCamp on the pc in order to plan and map routes for a cross Africa continent trip.

    But after an hour of playing with it I still cannot figure out how to map a simple course even! Very frustrated with it right now.

    Can one attend a training course on these applications in Cape Town somewhere please?

    Have a look here: https://www.4x4community.co.za/forum...ips-amp-Tricks

    I have created this thread to try and help with Basecamp issues. You will note that the 1st post serves as an index with links to relevant posts. The 1st item on the index will take you to a web site with tutorial videos. The last one deals with creating routes in Basecamp.

    You are welcome to contact me if you get stuck (0eight7four22three4nine5)

    Following up on this thread. Do you guys think there is a market for Basecamp training....like in "classroom" training?

    Garmin has excellent tutorial videos on
    Base Camp. There are scores of other videos as well.

    And on using the Montana:

    Tons on You Tube:
    Here is one on Route building:

    Take the time to work through the Garmin videos. Base Camp is really easy.
