Area Avoidances definitions - how to copy to another PC?

Basecamp allows you to define Area Avoidances and I find this feature very useful, however, I have not found a way to copy my definitions from one PC to another.  They are not in the GarminDB files.

Where are those area avoidances definitions located and how do you copy them to another PC, if possible?

Same question with the Activity Profiles defined on one PC, how do I copy them over to another PC?


  • Garmin did not provide a user friendly way to do this.  I have done it several times using Regedit.  Read up on Regedit on the net to understand the potential for damage to your system.  The way I do it is:

    On the source PC

    Launch Regedit.

    Navigate to Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Garmin\BaseCamp\Data\Profiles

    Right click on Profiles and select Export.  Select a path and filename to export to.

    Copy the .reg file just created to a USB stick or somehow get the file to the target computer

    On the target PC open explorer and navigate to the .reg file you created.

    Double click the .reg file. Pay attention to the warning and continue if you feel good about it.

    All profile data and avaidances are now on the target PC.

  • Thank you very much, this has indeed resolved my issue.
