Is MRA the replacement for BaseCamp?

I have always and only used Base camp in the past. There are several alternatives out there: Kurviger, Scenic etc. MRA is by far superior. As stated in my intro message I live in The Hague but work in London. I ride a lot overseas, USA, Europe UK etc. I have my own Website and am Chairman of a Motorcycle Club in The Hague. Not sure how long MRA has been up and running but its absolutely amazing, so much so that the Travel Moderator in the UK GS forum with its 18,000 members is actively promoting MRA as being better than Base camp.
I do have 1 question - if we have suggestions for improvement or ideas how should these be dealt with? Whilst this is a users forum I also see that the founder and some of the development Team are present.
This would outstrip Garmin by a 100 years. Garmin's after sale service is lousy.

I won't venture to list the points where BaseCamp still outclasses MRA.
There aren't many of those and therefore no reason for me to use BaseCamp again. That while I have been a serious adept.
The benefits of MRA outweigh and I no longer use any other planner.
The main reasons for me to use MRA are;
The convenience of sharing routes.
Available on various devices.
Extensive editing functions.
All routes always available (if Wifi/Internet).
Integration Planne and Navigator. (in development)
Thank you for the praising words.
MRA has been active since 2013, myself since early 2014, and I have always been a fan of Basecamp. So I no longer use Basecamp from 2014, MRA continues to develop, last year the MRA Mobile app was rewritten from scratch and the 1st beta test of the MRA Navigation (Next) module, which is integrated in the MRA, is currently being performed Mobile app.
In the meantime, the plans for an update of the website are being worked out, which will include "club account" among other things. Exactly what this will look like is still under development.
If you have any points for improvement or questions, feel free to ask them here on the forum, you will always receive an answer within a day.

thanks for the feedback. Look forward to the new developments and the ''Club Account'' section. Interested to know what extra's that will bring. I have the Gold membership.
Also I hope its OK but I have added links to MRA on my motorbike tours website and used your logo
