In the older versions of Basecamp you used to be able to view > Google earth but for some reason the link is not working in the newer versions.

File > export selection  -   save the GPX  KML

Google earth  - File > import - select file

OK - What have I missed?
Saved the GPX file - imported & ticked the "Creat KMLLine Strings" box (otherwise there is nothing displayed on Google earth), but it only shows the waypoints and the direct line between them, not the route i plotted on BaseCamp?
Am I being doff??  :o

If you use KML as a file format (export -> import) then it includes the route as well.  Depending on how complex the route is, it may moan that you have more than 10000 points though.
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Awesome - Thanks IDR - appreciated.
Worked as a kml perfectly.
Next is to do the reverse and get it onto the Zumo - so plan in GE and export to the ZUMO

You can export from GE and import into Basecamp using KML as well :thumleft:
