Re: Oregon 450t - first outing

You need v4.0 of the software, then you get "enter next stage" as an option while you're seeking a cache. See my post here

Re: Caching Bag & contents

Hi Phillip. What is a Prickstock? I can see one in several of the photos, and it is labelled in one of them.

A lot of kiwis seemed to come over here for mega wagga. It might pay to ask them what their thoughts on accomodation/rental etc are. Probably wouldn't take much to hire/(buy?) a tent and rent a car for a week or so. All depends on the available facilities I suppose.

Re: Newbie thread: Which Garmin handheld GPS to buy?

I was chatting to 3up the other day saying "I would be very upset if anything happened to my Colorado" only to find when I returned to the car that the backlight for the screen had stopped working.

Im going to go slightly OT here too, but it is a comic. Might have been appropriate on the "posted from my crappy phone" thread.

Classic Dilbert. Just replace the word "UNIX" with either "Garmin" or "Magellan", and replace the word "computer" with "GPS"

Re: Batteries

We recently went the Eneloop way, and they work really well especially after sitting in the caching bag for a couple of weeks. One thing we did find is that the Eneloop charger has breathed new life into some of our old NiMH (energizer, Dick Smith, varta) batteries. Watch out for the old varta-charg...

Re: GSAK Badly formed UTF-8 character in stream

Hi GMJ, Here's a better description of what happened: On the colorado, when selecting from the geocache screen, any caches on the list before yours would display their details fine/ Yours and after would show a blank screen for the details, and lock up. The oregon was simillar, but would hang for 20...
