BaseCamp supports a wide range of Garmin devices. However, it does not support legacy Garmin devices, specifically devices that communicate with the computer through a serial port.

Devices not compatible with BaseCamp:

  • eTrex and eTrex H
  • eTrex Vista, Legend, Venture, Mariner, Summit, and Camo
  • Foretrex 101 and 201
  • Geko 201 and 301
  • Rino 110, 120, and 130
  • GPS 72 and 76
  • GPSMAP 76 and 76S
  • GPS 12, 12MAP, 12CX, and 12XL
  • GPS II, II+, III, III+, and V

Use MapSource to communicate with a device on this list. The Trip and Waypoint Manager software was included with the retail purchase of many of these devices but has since been discontinued.
