.gpx is an easy option that our riding group use to share planned rides/locations.

I use the free android satnav app OsmAnd and whoever creates the ride route simply sends the .gpx file on WhatsApp.

create your point in basecamp as you know how then select your relevant list for that waypoint in your collection, then click file(top left), then export to a file of your choosing, you should then be able to send that as an attachement. hope that makes sense thats how I done the one below anyway if you get stuck let me we will try and sort it, I am a fan of basecamp myself but there are probably easier ways elswhere.

on that gpx file example you will see a track, a route, and also a waypoint.

This has been driving me Nuts since Sunday , Everytime i thought i had cracked it the file would not appear or could not be read or was corrupt .So Once again Thank You So Much a Fantastic Forum with so Many Helpful Members on it Cheers Francis

glad to help I am far from expert but seem to be able to make it work for myself most of the time anyway so anything else and I will happily try.
