Our Garmin Zumo 220 GPS shipped with MapSource as the routing software to accompany it. Garmin has since abandoned MapSource and began using its own software, BaseCamp, which is available for free as a download. The idea with BaseCamp (and was with MapSource) was that you could create a trip or a route on your computer, transfer it to your GPS and then load the route on your GPS and follow it. It is nice to do. By default BaseCamp checks for updates every time you load it. In BaseCamp you set options for profiles such as motorcycling, driving, hiking, etc.. With the options for each setting you can set the profile to not route you on things such as toll roads, dirt roads, avoid u-turns, highways and many more things. I noticed a feature in the motorcycle profile that I don’t know if it’s new or I’ve been missing it all this time. It’s a “curvy roads” routing feature. That’s right, curvy roads for a motorcycle! Who would’ve thought that motorcycles would like curvy roads? Well it’s an option I’m going to start playing with and see what results I get.
