Hi. Also you could try Wikipedia and/or Google with something like HDOP GPS

Re: Recording final co-ords for multis to use on maps

Hi. Is there any functionality to record the final location of multis and mysterys and the like. The reason for asking is so that when viewing Google Maps, I could use it to see where the final location is along with the existing traditional and virtuals in the area for when I am planning a caching...

Re: Multi caches that go interstate

Ah, the memories. :D
It was pre-caching though, 1991 I think.

Re: Caches to Nuvi 1450

Hi. When the nuvi is pressed into action, I set GSAK's GPS>Setup to the Make and Model (Garmin. nuvi 1450 (1450T ?).), and change the (GPS>Send Waypoints...) Waypoint Name field (from " %code ") to something like " %code,%smart " without the quotes, and leave the Waypoint Description field at " %Nam...

Re: Helpful Hints for Newcomers

Hi bazkaz. :) There's no need to use bad language on a public forum. Thanks for reporting your find. It may be easier to re-place the box, exactly where and how you found it. Are there identifying features on or in the box like documentation of any kind, numbers (EG: GA1234) or coordinates (EG: S22 ...

Location: Victoria, Australia day1976 found Unexpected (Traditional Cache) at 4/30/2012 Log Date: 4/30/2012 After reding the previous logs I was prepared to be looking for a non-traditional cache. Once arriving at GZ I began looking for things that looked just a bit out of the ordinary. The only th...

Re: Garmin Plugin - unable to install

Hi. Have you tried contacting Garmin? Could 'something' be running in the background.
Task Manager for XP: Start>Run>(type in taskmgr )>OK.

Re: Groundspeak "listing-service exclusivity on Mega-Events"

I like the not-for-profit nature of GCA. By necessity it's also not-for-loss. Send Groundspeak an invoice for all costs of Mega™ promotions on this site. There may be a lose lose result (for caching), but I reckon grey areas would become clear fairly quickly. :| Pick one "Yeah sure here's the couple...

Re: New car satnav

The nuvi 1450T would be worth considering.
They were "Half price" at DSE a couple of weeks ago. That low a price doesn't do smaller specialist retailers any favours, but at $149 ... :!:

Re: Downloading cache info onto a Garmin GPS60

Thanks for that. The download was from this site. The url is http://geocaching.com.au/cache/ga4281 . I clicked "send to GPS". A little window opened. A message identified that my GPS was found, so I clicked "write". A message appeared saying the information had been transferred BUT it does not appe...

Re: Downloading cache info onto a Garmin GPS60

Interesting. Try a few different caches using the same process each time.

Faeries? The same thing happens on my GPSmap60 with cache GA4281 (all looks good but the cache doesn't show up on the GPSr). :?:

Re: Downloading cache info onto a Garmin GPS60

Hi. Did you download a file (of geocaches) to your computer, or to the GPSr? Don't know much about Macs but it may help if you describe what and how you downloaded, and from which web page/address etc. If the geocache file/s has transferred *to the GPS60* OK you should find Geocaches listed at Find>...

Re: Nuvi 765 Operating System reqd for an idiot.

Hi. Have you tried to run Garmin's WebUpdater to update/rectify the issue? Connect the nuvi to PC and run the program. If you don't have WebUpdater already, it can be downloaded from garmin website. GSAK shouldn't corrupt any nuvi files but there may be a corrupted file in the upload?? I'd remove yo...
