    When I plot a route using basecamp to transfer it to my GPS (eTrex 20), if I use the 'direct' route setting then it works fine, but will not calculate estimated times or any of that information.

    Ideally this is something I'd like to know, so I set the default profile as 'walking' or 'hiking' yet whenever I do this for some reason Basecamp makes the route jump all over the place, connecting to roads. This profile does calculate a time, all be it a wrong one because of it jumping!

    Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Try 'Search' - even if it is shite. Basecamp thread here - others exist.

    Garmin Basecamp New to GPS

    I use MotionX on my iPhone and iPad. I have also used a GPS Garmin Rino and a Garmin 60 series my Father has. They are all about the same. I found the MotionX works just fine.Mike
