View in Google Earth 4.7.0

Post by dmb1319 » Mon May 28, 2018 5:14 am

Installed 4.7.0 tonight and, unless I'm missing something the option to View a track in Google Earth under the View menu is gone. :oops:

That feature has been removed with current (Final) BaseCamp Release.

I've stuck with 4.6.2 for this very reason. If you want to revert 4.6.2 is available from the [ GPSrChive > BaseCamp > Software Updates ] page.

Here's a question. Garmin has told me if I miss an update, just download it and run the installer. IE, install OVER an existing installation. This seems OK going UP to a newer version. However, if "downgrading" to a previous version, should I:
a) just run the 4.6.2 installer over 4.7?
b) Uninstall 4.7 and then install a "clean" copy of 4.6.2?

If I do a clean install will I have to reinstall my maps (i have the 24K and 100K TOPOs on DVD)?

An uninstall/reinstall won't affect maps or data
