Garmin BaseCamp (version 4.0 or later) includes a handy feature for tracking compatible Garmin handheld devices: BaseStation. With BaseStation, every update received from other devices by your tracking handheld is sent to BaseCamp, allowing you to track yourself, your dogs, and your contacts on your computer. This can free your hands and allow you to see more of the map on a bigger screen. You might find BaseStation ideal for a variety of situations, including tracking dogs at hunting competitions or coordinating search and rescue or fire fighting operations.
