    Thank you allory!! I wonder when they are going to update the compass issue for v2.70.
  2. wouldnt that be like a palm/cellphone/gps type of device? I dont see them making something like that b/c mass majority of caches are on land thus you can buy just an el-cheapo gps Would be interesting what they would come up with if they ever did . Or you may ahve just invented something. Make one of your own
  3. We are having a huge discussion about it here

    Ok now several of you have commented on the old version 2.60 being a better version of software, I have the new (2.70) in my Vista CX but am wondering if my SAT reception would be better with 2.60. My CX seems to do very good on 2.70 but I never gave it a chance on 2.60, can someone give me a link to 2.60? It would be greatly appreciated.. Thanks, Jeff I think the main issue is the reception. And the locked compass page when you use "Go To" on version 2.70 I like the software really handy but its the 30 foot radiouse around a cache that i dont care for. DGPS (WAAS) accuracy: Position: < 3 meters, 95% typical Velocity: 0.05 meter/sec steady state Thats 10 feet. So yea mine is definately off. I dont really know what else to try.

    Well i guess mine is still off. here is a screenshot with version 2.60 and 2.70 and where the cach is. That looks pretty normal to me. Well its close they are all 30 feet apart. A 30 foot radiouse is pretty big when looking for a needle in a haystack "micro" I guess i just really miss my sportrack color But anyway how is it that different Vista Cx's have different readings. <- i'm guessing thats probably due to many different things.

    well i just loaded 2.60 and i can already see one good feature. I can actually use the gps in the house. All satelites connect to my gps really great. 2.70 wouldnt let me use it in my house. I'm gonna see how close i can get to some of the caches tomorrow when theres daylight. Fingers Crossed
  8. ok thanks guys i was on this site and it looks like the GC forums thats why i was confused Thanks for the quick response
  9. I cant get my forum signature to work. i'm putting in the tracker bar thingy. anyone have any idea? thanks <a href="http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=5e40733f-b80f-4a12-89a2-d33a0c152798" target="_blank"><img src="http://img.geocaching.com/stats/img.aspx?txt=Caching+Since+May+2005&uid=5e40733f-b80f-4a12-89a2-d33a0c152798&bg=1" border="0" title="Profile for Kraz3yCacher" alt="Profile for Kraz3yCacher"></a>

    Hmm sounds like 2.70 may have more issues then the locked compass screen.
  11. Well we may be narrowing down the issue. I did find a few caches no thanks to my gps but to google earth and descriptions of the cache. going back to this post now. Vista Cx

    yea i hope its just a matter of the placer mixing a few numbers. A c-worker that works in the allen office has a friend that is a geocacher but i dont know his name so i'll have him email him tomorrow. I'll keep an update as well I have been wanting to go back to 2.60. Wen i bought my vista cx about 2 weeks ago i opened the packaged played with it for about 5 min then upgraded the firmware. And i'm wondering if thats why my coordinates are off too. I just havent had time to go back to 2.60 My plane leaves back tonight at 7 and I will have all weekend to pretty much play with it. I will go to a cache i have been to a few blocks behind my house. Then revert back to 2.60 and see the difference. I'll update within the next couple of days maybe sat. Thanks -Dave

    Yea i use to have the magellan sportrak color and it was amazing on finding locations. This is is a lot more expensive and a lot better in options and it doesnt seem to be as good finding coordinates. And i'm aware of the overhead "trees, bad storms, etc." and like the cache that is close to iphop is in the open . I'm just waiting on someone to reply or pm me to go have some fun finding a few caches together Or if someone has an equivelant gps as the vista Cx and tell me exactly what settings they use. such as "Display - Degrees, North reference - True, switch to compass heading when below 25mh for more than 5 secs, and other settings. I did notices that my vista cx is slow on updating where you are as well.

    Yea i understand a few feet but a few of those caches put me 50 yards away and if it wasnt for the great detailed hints or story on that one lol i wouldnt have found it. So i'm just waiting to see if i can hook up with someone to compare coordinates.
  20. i'm leaving on thursday back to republic, mo would like to get some caches from here before i head back home

    And it was set that way when the coords were uploaded/entered? The second most common problem is for the coord to be typoed when entering it. We can assume if it was uploaded from .loc/.gpx that the coord was correct, and the the coord was *intended* to be correct (some caches have fake/altered coords in them for puzzle purposes). Yea its defaulted that way. And i use GSAK to upload all coordinates. And a couple of the caches had changed coordinates and i entered them in if needed. Here are some screenshots.

    The most common thing is wrong datum. Yes its set to WGS84 datum

    When i eventually find someone to compare coordinates with and say my gps is way off how do you fix it? is it something i would have to send back in or could it be caused also by the 2.70 patch? Just curiouse. The post reguarding comparing my gps
