  • Basecamp Closes on GPS Connection

    Hey all... sad that my first post is one of woe...
    I have 3 different mac computers running basecamp and it seems that one has an issue... before I uninstall and reinstall I wanted to see if anyone has had (and corrected) this issue... my main computers basecamp will open up and run on its own but on connecting *any* of my 6 GPS units it closes out and I get an error code... I can open up and run on either of my two other computers and can use the same cabling and the same GPS units and all works fine...

    Basecamp 4.7
    Mac 10.13.6 High Sierra
    ALL GPS are updated

    Any help would be great...

    This is one of those annoying issues limited to one computer so you need to look there for the solution. As a start I'd uninstall then reinstall BaseCamp, doing a complete shutdown after each step.
    Currently own Drive 50LMT-D, Nuvi 2508LMT-D, Nuvi 1490LMT, Nuvi 1310, Montana 650T, Etrex 20, and use Basecamp, OSM mapping
    Previously owned Etrex Legend H, Mio Navman and used Mapsource
