    Support continues. New versions won't: "BaseCamp development has been discontinued".

    But if the MapSource continued support model is followed, support for BaseCamp will largely consist of coercing users to migrate to the new website.

    it appears that the new website doesn't exist: "HTTP Status 404 - /en-CA/explore.garmin.com".

    I am not surprised. The “Explore” app is available for mobile devices through android and Apple app stores, but discussion forums for the app indicate very limited device capability and issues with the app itself. It sure looks like Garmin is trying to get out of any serious mapping software for PCs. The search for good third-party software continues...I sure miss my old original Delorme software.

    I guess it all remains to be seen.
    But I will probably continue to use BaseCamp for as long as I can.

    Biggest problem I see with a web based application is what do you do when you're offline?
