    How to put a map on basecamp to put gps stuff across to?

    I have a garmin 62s and I am trying to view my travels on my PC, but the map on the basecamp is very basic, anyway of upgrading importing etc, free ??

    Or is there a better software program or way of doing this?

    Don't think you will find much for free. Someone sad there is a way to put Google maps images on 62s but it did not work for me. Wasted a full day on it . But with a help of a friend we worked out a solution. Can help if you not too far away.
    Nothing is tough about having a 70 lb bow and looking like an uncoordinated praying mantis while trying to draw it back.

    I have maptoaster which does this easily enough, but I prefer to overlay it onto Google Earth, as mentioned above. Much more informative. You can load straight from the GPS to Google Earth though, saves a bit of frigging around for me.

    Good point.
    I used to sell welders. Get someone asking for a demo, go there and they ask to show them how to weld
