Could you just send it in gpx format and let the magellan owners import they way they like?

This can be a tricky one. I too like taking along the little pal but the "dogs allowed" areas in my area can be technically challanging to interpret. At location X there is designated area for dogs on leashes, dogs off leashes and dogs probibited. At location Y the same signs appear. Only by going t...

A number of OS TBs have been in some of my CBD caches ... but as they're micros I would assume that this is a fairly common practice.

The Magellan Mapsend Lite V2 PC software is also quite usefull for planing and displaying the topo mapping data on the larger PC monitor. I forgot about that! I don't use it much but was impressed with it. Great for staking out an Event with surrounding caches. I even impressed a farmer heaps by PO...

(is this rev up .... dug my head and MHO) Magellan XL does all that (eXplorist 500 and 600 as well I think - Functionality difference is that the XL has a large screen, 600 has barometer and temperature). The XL takes 4 AA batteries - comes with car charger as well. A set of fully charged batteries ...

I have had to reset my IPAQ a few times and was thinking that maybe it didn't like the 1gb of data on it. I have played around with HTML files exported from GSAK to the PDA and tonight I loaded GPXsonar (after finally finding where to download it from!). One thing I'll say is that the file transfer ...

I would not like to see the reason for passing on geocoins as above is because cachers are afraid to place them in caches. IMO trackables belong in caches, apart from the odd special variety eg, travel bugs worn by some. Unfortunately, some people have decided that my trackable released 2006 geocoi...

Yey! Got my iPaq 1950 today. Used my exiting filters in GSAK and just selected Export>HTML files ... straight to the PDA. It creates a nice little index that does all I need for now - my main aim was not to have to print out all the paper and not get caught short when I wanted to go for "just one mo...

If you use GSAK you can export all your caches to HTML which captures most of the data and provides a pretty easy way I of displaying them, without the need for extra PDA s/w. But the above doesn't capture find times and TB capture data as well as easily locating nearby caches. Sounds like what I w...
