Plan a Trip

Use BaseCamp to plan your next hiking, biking, motorcycling, driving or off-roading trip. You can view maps, plan routes, and mark waypoints and tracks from your computer and then transfer them to your device.

  • Track Draw feature lets you trace your planned route and view elevation changes, helping you estimate the difficulty of a hike or bike ride.
  • Plan the perfect scenic route for your next road trip, making sure your navigator takes you through certain waypoints.
  • Play back your routes and tracks over time and save and share your adventure.

Survey the Terrain

BaseCamp displays your topographic map data in 2-D or 3-D on your computer screen, including contour lines and elevation profiles. Load map data from your handheld device, or import maps you've downloaded or purchased on DVD or microSD™ card. Consider our TOPO series maps, which offer detail on a scale of either 1:100,000 or 1:24,000.

Geotag Photos

BaseCamp lets you geotag photos, associating them with specific waypoints. You can see the exact scenery at any given location. Transfer the photos to your handheld device, publish photos directly to Picasa™, or email your geotagged photos directly to friends or family so they can navigate right to your favorite spots in the future.

Transfer Satellite Images

With BaseCamp and a BirdsEye Satellite Imagery subscription, you can transfer an unlimited amount of satellite images to your outdoor or fitness device and seamlessly integrate those images into your maps to get a true representation of your surroundings. It makes it easy to scout campsites, sources of water, potential hazards and more. If you prefer raster topographic maps, you can also download BirdsEye Select maps and pay only for the data you download.

Experience the App

BaseCamp Mobile lets you supplement your fēnix outdoor watch or Oregon® 600 series handheld with the power of your smartphone. Easily manage and share the waypoints, routes and tracks you’ve logged on your trail-hardened device. Simply sync your fēnix or Oregon with your iPhone® to download your data using Bluetooth® 4.0 wireless technology.
