Re: an 'invisible' garmin....

GPS 60 - no microSD card, so that rules that out!
Have tried multiple cables, no luck with any of them.

Shall try a different computer tomorrow, but if that works I'm going to be equally as befuddled, as I don't know what'll be different about this one. :?

an 'invisible' garmin....

Hoping someone's experienced this and/or got an idea, because I'm all out... After many years of faithful service, my Garmin GPS60 has decided to go 'invisible'.... Whenever I connect it to our PC (which has played nicely with in the past, and has had no significant changes that I"m aware of) it sim...

Re: Armchair discoveries

This topic got me exploring and I soon located this site: http://www.tee-bees.co.uk/ Seems not only do you not need to actually see/hold a TB, you don't even need to copy TB codes off a printed list at the event. You can just enter the password for the event (provided at the event I assume), and eve...

Re: Armchair discoveries

Geez.... Logging coins you've never seen or held, 'visiting' coins into caches you've never gone to (as with the 2 millionth cache shenanigans).... I guess this silly old game of 'going outside and finding stuff' is getting a bit tiresome, is it? :roll:

Re: "Throwdown" or "angel cache"?

I was on trek to Tamworth last week and stopped to look for a cache that had been logged as DNF 3 times before the last find, we stopped because it was an iconic location, we searched for awhile when we decided it was either 1. Missing or 2. We didnt search good enough, i leant towards 1. as the ca...

Re: Newby

Welcome! There's quite a few Box Hill North cachers - I'm one of them! :D And we're fortunate to have a fair concentration of caches right at our back doors with the parks and the freeway trail. I'll look forward to seeing your name appear in the cache logs! And feel free to drop me a line if you ev...

Re: Android Geocaching Apps

What is the collective wisdom in regards to the best android app for offline use only on a relatively low-powered phone? I've just acquired a very basic smartphone and won't be using data in the field, so is there a recommendation as to the best app for this? I have GSAK and would assume to use tha...

Re: How to organise a geo caching event!!

Hi Sharon, There's lots of things one could say about what makes a good event, etc. But the best recommendation I could make is to get in touch with the Central Victorian Geocachers group. Very active, have organised lots of events, and I'm sure would be chuffed to connect with you on this. http://c...

Re: "Throwdown" or "angel cache"?

FWIW, the CO is doing a Maintenance Run this Sunday, 20 January 2013. Anyone who wants to accompany her is welcome to do so. There are a few of us going along, in front of the CO that is. There is also a group of us doing the Bass Coast Rail Trail series the day before. Come along and join the fun....

Re: "Throwdown" or "angel cache"?

Yep. That's a throwdown. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/log.aspx?LUID=c9104146-36e3-4684-933f-0b7492eadb52 I saw that too... As I've been waiting for that to come back online so I can finally log the 100th. I must admit I was a bit torn as I came back from holidays via that cache today and wondered...

Re: What Have You Lost/Found?

What a weird bag full of stuff to stumble across!! Would certainly have me watching my bike as I hauled that one out of the forest. About 18 months ago I was researching a spot nearby to home for a cache (in some fairly inaccessible bushland/billabong area alongside a freeway reserve) when I spied a...

Re: A event for Introverts!

What a surprising thread to spot :D And as a dyed-in-the-wool introvert (I think I blew the scales at work when I did my induction personality profile!) how could I not contribute. I could imagine an 'event' where the whole idea isn't just about getting into a huge group and talk incessantly :wink: ...
