3 – Ian’s FAQ’s

a) Garmin

Number of waypoints in route and best way way to do routing turn by turnApple update – Big Sur

Basecamp will run slowly with Big Sur.

This is not a solution (Garmin have to update BaseCamp), but a short term workaround -

The problem (Mac running slowly) comes when you're viewing the maps in 2d, but not if you view it in 3D.

To get around it in the meantime -

Start BasecampClick on View > View 3d Map OnlyPlug in your GPS unit and let the maps be read By viewing them in 3d it gets around the problem

Fingers crossed Garmin get it sorted soon.

b) Satmap –

The Satmap question, that Satmap got Jeff Bale to do to get the Active 20 to read the map card again, which I had forgotten about, was to perform a Master reset.
