I liked MapSource and stuck with it LONG after BaseCamp was available but with newer computers and operating systems I finally bit the bullet and started using BaseCamp. While I have used it for a few years now, there are more 'features' I hate than anything it supposedly was better than MapSource for.
#1 issue with BaseCamp... since it keeps all the data 'under one roof' so-to-speak, when it gets corrupted, it's gone.
Lesson learned... I back it up EVERY time I use it.
#2... anytime I plug in a removable device, whether it is the GPS, one of my camera SD cards or the like, BaseCamp latches on to it, thinking I must want to use BaseCamp to access the card. Heck no, I just want to copy photos to my computer, so leave it alone!
Which brings to mind... the first time I ejected a card while BaseCamp was open was when it crashed, taking the data with it.
#3... When sliding the map across the screen, if the mouse happens to stop on a track or waypoint, when you try to drag the map farther it moves the waypoint.
#4... #25... how can I remember them all?
Anyway, because I still have folders with the individual original files, I still use MapSource from time-to-time... I just fire up Windows 7 in a VirtualBox on the Mac.
