  1. Thank you again for the quick reply. The Cache Type is grayed out and there is no CHECK/UNCHECK Check if you only want Premium and Charter Members to view this cache option.


    Could it be because I need to be a premium member to change that option? My premium membership expired and I haven't renewed it yet...

  2. Some other caching sites offer a Verification system for found caches. Meaning the owner has the option to put a barcode and/or Verification Code. When someone finds the cache, they scan it with their phone or enter the verification code when they log the find.


    It would be great if Geocaching.com would have this system. Maybe have 2 different finds. The traditional where someone can just log the find likes its always been done and a "Verified Found". The Verified Found count would be a separate counter something like this:



    Found: (19)

    Verified Found: (6)

  3. I have for sale a perfect condition Garmin Forerunner 201.


    Comes with 201 unit, charger, data cable and I'll throw in a Bike Mount if you want it. It's in perfect condition. I put a screen protector on it right out of the box so the screen in mint also.


    If you are an outdoor runner, this is a great tool to have. You can download your training activities to your computer and see it on the logbook with all the data you need to improve your workouts.


    Asking $85 shipped ConUS via USPS Priority Mail.

    Payment via Paypal.


    From the Garmin Website:

    GPS sensor provides precise latitude, longitude, and altitude data for exact location information.


    Mark specific locations, and then look-up and navigate to these points using an electronic map.


    Retrace your steps to a starting point or reverse your normal route for routine variation.


    Amount of calories burned can be tracked and calculated over the course of a workout.


    Lap history—such as lap time, lap distance, and average pace—can be stored for up to two years.


    Performance data can be automatically archived and calculated to provide an accurate record.


    Automated stopwatch provides auto-lap and auto-pause features.

    Lap timer indicates when a certain speed is reached or when you've fallen below a pre-set level.


    Pace whistle sounds alert when you begin traveling slower or faster than your desired pace.


    Distance whistle sounds when you reach a specified duration or distance in your workout.


    Download free Garmin software to transfer data from your Forerunner 201 to your PC for storage and analysis.

  4. I think the trick was NOT to contact them and bring attention to the problem. Because you didn't contact them, they just shipped you the legend bonus package but with the original order information intact.


    I bet they will ship you the C. What you'll have to watch out for now is if they automatically charge you the difference when they ship out the C.

  5. I think it has to do with the unit alot too. When I turn on my 60cs and Rino 130 inside my house, the 60cs immediately picks up signals and locks with no problem


    The Rino takes longer and has trouble keeping the signal. I don't have any problems aquiring signals under any foliage but other GPSrs do, standing in the same spot.

  6. Well, for $500-$900 one can have the extra security of an EPIRB. One with a built in GPS or GPS interface +cable for your GPSr will alert the SAR in minutes.


    A weather alert radio like the Rino 130, some Motorola talkabouts, etc can be helpful in identifying upcoming bad weather.


    And always give your plan to a friend/family member as well as the local Ranger station.

  7. Try initializing the GPSr again and let it sit in clear view of the sky for 15 minutes or so. This will download the almanac and should work. I've had this happen a couple of times over the years.


    Recently, on my Rino it would only pick up a couple of sats and give me the message "poor reception".


    I re-initialized from scratch. In a few minutes it picked up the usual 6-10 sats and I let it sit for several more minutes to ensure all data was downloaded...

  8. Hi,


    I've got 2 like new Rino 110s I'm looking to upgrade to 130s. They are in perfect condition, has about 2 sets of batteries through them. I've got screen protectors on them (put on right out after purchase).


    In fact I still think I have the receipt somewhere, bought just a few months ago.


    I have several other GPSRs I use frequently so these only got used very seldom.


    I'll post pictures in a bit.

  9. Cool, thanks! I've been a Premium for awhile and been able to generate queries before like a said but not now :anitongue:. I was going to go on a hike and wanted to get the lates Geocache waypoints into my GPSrs.


    I just double checked and it paid July 9th, not 3rd like my original said:

  10. Hi,


    I used to be able to generate pocket queries, now when I go and click on the link to generate, it gives me a message that I need to be a "Premium" member. I've been a premium member for awhile now. In fact July 3rd, $3 was charged to my Paypal account.


    Whn I enter my subscription # into the "Activate", it says it's already activated. Yet it won't let me generate Queries.....in fact I just noticed that my custom "Flashmaster" is replaced by "Geocacher" under my avitar also. So I guess I'm being charged but I don't have Premium privilages?


    Any ideas? Help please!!! This just happened recently.



  11. I'm torn between the two Vista C and 60CS.


    First off, why isn't it called the Vist CS (Color/Sensor?), anyway..


    The 60 CS is faster aquiring a lock from cold start. It has more memory, although it needs more.


    The Vista C is smaller. (I carry it everywhere, people think it's a cellphone)


    If anyone is contemplating between the Legend and Vista, go with the sensors. For 40-50 bucks more you'll have a steady map/pointer when your close to a cache and standing still looking for it.


    Without the sensors, you do the "shuffle" to get the pointer to point the right way!


    Both suck as a Car GPS, the screen is too small. The iQue or 2620 is the way to go for car navigation. With the touchscreen, input is a breeze. The screen is big enough too.

  12. I'm thinking of selling my selling my iQue 3600 I bought from GPS City (8-10-03) and will include receipt. I've always used it with a screen protector so it's mint. Screen protector is currently on and will ship with it.


    Included will be:


    iQue 3600 with OEM leather screen guard

    -AC Charger

    -Docking cradle (USB w/Power)

    -full Leather belt case

    -256mb Sandisk SD memory card

    -Fully unlocked City Select 5

    -I have City Select 6 unlocked for this unit, will include if transferable

    -OEM Auto Nav Kit (Cradle, Beanbag, with external speaker)

    -Titan III external magnetic antenna antenna (plugs right in)


    -SplashPhoto software ($30)

    -Bejeweled ($15)


    This thing pretty much does it all, listen to MP3 music with the navigation voice promt overriding the music. Watch video, full function Palm 5 OS PDA.


    Asking $600 shipped via Priority Mail USPS ConUS Or make me an offer.
