Re: How to get Oregon 300 to recognise Geocaches

I use GSAK to send caches to the O300 without problem - I do keep the firmware upto date - have you done this?

Re: Garmin - A tale of woes!

Amazing how a discussion like this can influence others. I was about to take the plunge and buy an Oregon 300 (particularly with the new low price at JA-GPS) to replace my yellow Etrex H, but I now have doubts. I'll be watching this thread closely, hopefully to see some positive comments about the ...

Re: Moveable Cache Race

Ok - so far I have Moved 6 cache...

From Publish to Log ! - an FTF record?

On the way home from a country drive for work today I had the good fortune to check my email at the right moment to discover a newly published cache (GC23APE) was just minutes away. I was able to make the find within 27min from receiving the email to writing in log book. Are there records for this t...

Re: GCA Official Geocache Sticker - Comments

My only comment is that you could still have a line along the bottom something like "Support Geocaching Australia www.geocaching.com.au" - this would not stop me applying using the sticker on GC caches

It does, but the unanswered question that I have is will the GSAK macro work?

I have a current issue however (and I have tried to bring this up in other forums). We love our Gamin Nuvi310 but its antenna is on the bli...

Do yourself a favour and check the photos attached to the logs. They are a complete hoot.
I vote that it deserves a prize in its own right !
