Re: Caching games this year?

An event on a bus or the train so that by the time the next person logs the cache it is in a different location.

Re: GPX to Etrex 10 on Mac

I assume you realise the GCA GPX will only give you the GCA caches in the radius not the GC ones.

Re: GeosportZ 2012 - Questions and Clarifications

Thanks Team Wibble, although I have known for about 7 weeks that I was only competing for second place because Marcus was going to be near impossible to beat. now just have to hang on for the next couple of days.

Re: Improving data techniques with a Dakota

I generally filter out found caches in GSAK and don't reload them to the GPS but when you mark a cache as found on the unit it adds it to the geocache_visits.txt file and then knows it's found whenever you have that cache in the unit. The unit looks at an attribute when it loads the caches/waypoints...

Re: Improving data techniques with a Dakota

Thirdly, storage on the GPS. Currently all the caches are all mixed in together. The Dakota seems to have plenty of memory and hasn't objected so far but it seems inefficient to have a whole bunch of WA caches (from a visit earlier this year) mixed in with caches from my home state, Tasmania. Not t...

Re: Geosportz

Maybe it should be that you have to complete a set number of the sports and the winner is the team with the X highest number of points. X could be a percentage of the number of teams that complete the required number of sports. (ie if 10 teams finish all required sports the winner is the 4th highest...

Re: enhancement to field notes

I'm with mtrax on this. I'd much rather be able to set my preferance to having the field notes be field notes until I make logs of them. When I cache I sellect find a cache on the GPSr, find the cache and hit the found button (I really don't want to type in my log on the GPS while driving to the nex...

Re: Oregon 450t - loading GPX files

I've had this problem a couple of times in the past with my Dakota 20. It happens if the unit is interupted when loading the caches from the GPX file into the GPS unit memory (or atleast the index listing), I've had it hang up when it couldn't get sat fix (and I said not to keep looking) and when I'...

I drove and picked up an FTF over 1000kms from home. Admittedly I was already planning to drive there for a holiday at the time anyway.
