Re: Newbie thread: Which PDA/GPS combination to buy?

My iPhone has latest software operating system. Make sure you have the latest GC software update. There was a note (GC forum? or somewhere I read) that in the previous version there was a memory leak which eventually slowed the app down just like you said. On reflection, that happened to me - slow t...

Re: Newbie thread: Which PDA/GPS combination to buy?

I have got Geosphere but have yet to try it out.

Interesting about the delay when typing. I don't have that problem on my iPhone 4 with version 4.2.1
Just tried it and the text appears instantly as I press a "key".

Re: Newbie thread: Which PDA/GPS combination to buy?

iPhone 4 + Groundspeaks Geocaching app = everything you could possibly need for Geocaching. \:D/ =; I too have tried that, and I must say it works fine. But: Must have a reasonable data connection and I find the screen is a bit small when it comes to reading the description/notes and last found etc...

A blonde calls her boyfriend and says, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started." Her boyfriend asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?" The blonde says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster." Her boyfri...

I have looked to see what the difference is (between the latest and what I am using) and don't think that there is much point in me upgrading at the moment.

The latest version 6 download does everything that I need.

I have been using Google maps on websites to show people the location of events/activities. Very easy to put on a web page, with some great stuff that you can do with them. I send people to: http://www.venturers.sa.scouts.com.au/site/map.asp and they then email me the data so I can make a map for th...

If it has been archived, can I then place a new cache in that location?

On the 1:50k maps of South Australia trig points are typically marked as a triangle with a dot in the middle.

But I believe that not all trig points are shown on the 1:50k maps.

Unfortunately Firefox is also buggy with some css. I doubt if there is any browser that is fully compliant.

But I agree that there is little point in coding hacks for a browser that is still in beta.

Almost like asking which brand of car to buy? :D I have the little yellow Garmin eTrex which works well for me and is about the cheapest of the "serious" GPS units around. Using the car analogy... If are buying a car you usually go for a test drive. My suggestion would be to find other cachers near ...

Looking at the "membership list", many of the WWW links are to sex sites.
Is it possible to wipe these "members" off? Might be a big job, but if future members are to be vetted you might not get any more of these www sites.

I found the explanation a bit confusing - perhaps because of the use of two terms: Waymarking and Locationless I think you are saying that trigpoints would be logged just like we log a physical cache. If I can find the trigpoint I can log it as a find, and so can everyone else who finds it. Is that ...
