    Default "Future" Basecamp Compatibilty from Garmin

    I just saw that Garmi released a new version of software for the 62/78 units and they have this statement at the top of the download page, what does it mean? What are they going to do?:

    Important steps for future BaseCamp Compatibility:
    If you are a user of BaseCamp now, or plan to be in the future, you must follow these steps to ensure your data is protected during this software update:
    Connect your handheld unit to a computer and launch BaseCamp. Transfer all tracks, routes and waypoints to BaseCamp.
    Delete the /Garmin/GPX folder from the handheld's mass storage.
    Update the handheld's software via WebUpdater and reboot the handheld.
    Reconnect the handheld to a computer and transfer your data from BaseCamp back to the handheld.

    Probably old GPXs would create problems in new Basecamp ,so it has to restore them in your gps in a compatible way.
    I did as explained and I've back my tracks ,routes and waypoints back in 62
