Re: New Program - GSAK (Geocaching Swiss Army Knife)

I've just discovered that the new 1000 cache limit on Pocket Queries has a small problem. You need to download them manually. The automated email facility only works with PQs of up to 500. I had a system of PQs which copied all updated caches in specified placement date ranges covering all caches i...

Garmins get too hot to handle - Product Recall

For those with Nuvi's who have been keeping their hands warm over winter. Garmin Australia has issued a recall for some of its most popular GPS devices as they have the potential to overheat, despite the cold Australian winter. Garmin has identified a risk that the batteries in some of its devices m...

Re: KMZ files link

Whilst it would be a handy feature, I can see what a path to a Z cache would look like now. Follow the path for 2km, and then look up, up a bit further, and just to the left #-o Just as well Google Earth is in 3D. :D

Re: GSAK database location?

The other way to check your data locations is to use the Folder Finder tool through "Tools=>GSAK Folder Finder"

Re: A new numbers-challenge for you

hahaha nice project... only possible I suppose in Canberra or Adelaide where the puzzle cache density is so huge! :shock: Hmmm only finding Zytheran caches.... that could hurt :P I'm in that boat. Just about all of my closest to home puzzles that we have solved (most of the ones that we haven't are...

Re: In your honest opinion.

G'day, You will probably get a fair few different opinions about which one is best, and what the best way is to do something, so I'll just put up my experience. I've got a Oregon 300. It's perfect for paperless caching, as when used in conjunction with GSAK, it makes impromptu or planned caching eas...

Re: Australia's Largest Cache

Just the thread to beat my own drum. The Big Kahuna http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?guid=5de7e994-752e-49aa-8dcc-f87b2ccce165&log=y is a used ammo container. It once contained four bombs or some sort. It is big but maybe not this big. Although it is big enough to be a dinning tabl...

Re: Longest without a find

I think that something must have gone bung in the feed again, as today's mail out shows that there are a pile of puzzle caches that have been archived, that are still actually fine.

Re: Report GCA Site issues here

At a guess (C@W would probably be able to see straight away) it had some funny (malformed) characters in what you pasted in, which caused the issue.

Re: Report GCA Site issues here

I just did a log for a locationless cache and when I looked at the page the log entry had truncated. GA1698 When I looked at where it cut off the rest of the log I noticed it was at a " quote. The rest of the log has gone. Now I know I can fix the log (typing it a second time round is never the sam...

Re: Puzzle caches - solved but not found

What we do, is when we have solved a cache, we put in corrected co-ords into GSAK, and then have a filter that does all unfound/available/puzzles solved, and then export that. It requires having 2 filters, and then joining them using 3 lines in a macro, but it works great. We can then quickly see wh...
