    Question Garmin plotting software??

    I have base camp and I hate it.

    What are you guys running or heard that is good?

    I just want something that works as similar to classic google maps as possible and allows me to manipulate the plotted route.

    have you tried the HD ride planner? Just log onto the coroprate site and mouse over to the the owners tab on the top. Click there and then click on the ride planner tab. It's pretty intuitave and supposedly downloads the route you select directly to any registered Garmin unit. I used it for the trip to DC and back over memorial day but didn't have a garmin. Just printed out the directions and used a kneeboard for the pages.

    I have seen that before but haven't tried it in that fashion. Maybe I will try that...

    I just wish there was a better software.

    I wish apple had a route planner that I could drag and change routes since I use my apple map app for everything. I did have the garmin app on the phone at one point but apple works better.
