Re: New phones to have 30cm GPS accuracy in 2018

How will it be when phones have better accuracy than a dedicated GPS? I'm not sure but I think we're there already. In the consumer environment: The only thing left is battery life. For the rest phones do everything better. Edwin Or a signal. I've seen caches where the CO advises there is no mobile...

Re: Vantage Point not communicating with Geocaching.com

I've got VP on Win 7 & get the same errors. My 710's usb connection broke awhile back so it's retired, sadly as Garmin can't hold a candle to it.

Re: DNF Etiquette

Prior to looking for Locationless caches I was the 4th best in NSW & the 11th best in Australia for not finding GC & GCA caches. Still doing pretty well on GCA. Perhaps there could be some bling in reverse.

Re: Equity Concerns in the States Of the Nation Game

Very quite out there! Inadvertently is the word. Consequences not evident at the time I'd say. Bonus should be withdrawn retrospectively though to make it a level playing field for everyone.

Re: A CORS for the tragics - Kulwin

Kulwin has a beautiful old trig in the background which my link, if I knew how to add it properly, takes you to.

Re: A CORS for the tragics - Kulwin

They're Trigs. They're modern replacements for those old beacons on the tops of hills. When I add a new CORS I also add tags "cors" so you could run a Query with the tag of cors & you'd get 217 CORS. There have been 7 added in Tasmania but mostly NSW. I've added a few as have others. As I recall the...

A CORS for the tragics - Kulwin

Adding a few new CORS when I saw this one:

Appears to be on PP so let it go.

(Edit) Well that URL link didn't work so just add the inbetween!

Re: Phones & GPS

I still use a GPSr, Garmin now as I broke my Magellan 710. Occasionally I use the phone to enter a find. I do Waymarking more than Geocaching now-a-days & a phone would be of no use anyway.

Re: Online Record Attempt Here - 27 Sep 2017

Had an atomic clock running as time on lappy incorrect by about 32 seconds. I'm here for the duration, albeit a bit early. Doesn't show I'm on-line but am.

Re: Cache update emails

I like the idea of the links. I rip through the upcoming events now as they repeat day after day so being able to ignore the latter & just check new ones would be ideal.

Re: Garmin 600T - Unable to load geocaches

Had another go this morning. Initially using the USB connection on the LHS which connected the device to the power supply only. Then swapped over to the RHS & showed connected but GSAK wouldn't load caches saying device was not connected. Fiddled around with the setup on GSAK sending caches to other...

Re: Garmin 600T - Unable to load geocaches

I did some research & found mention of the USB registry. I can download a program - Clean Windows Registry of USB Devices - which cleans everything not plugged in. I'd leave the Printer connected as I'd be in trouble if I lost it. Cameras should be OK. Nuvi not so sure. Would this Clean Windows prog...

Re: Garmin 600T - Unable to load geocaches

Thanks for the reply - I think I'll go for the "I just leave it and it solves itself" option. It will no longer connect to the USB power source now & I couldn't turn it off so removed the batteries, reinstalled & it turned on OK but no advance on loading the caches, viewing the waypoints. I really m...
