  1. No, you won't run out of access. You can have 20 queries and you can run any 5 of them any day. For example, you could have 1 query that you run every day. That would leave you 4 queries that you could run every day.
  2. Probably because it is referencing the current page.
  3. Read the post above yours. Also, hold your mouse pointer over the little squares and it will tell you what it is. That trick works a lot now a days.
  4. d=difficulty/t-terrain This is a rating from 1 (the easiest) to 5 (the hardest).
  5. I thought it was 0.10 miles. lets go with .10 of a mile. Its Shorter. /Phantom Tollbooth Actually 528 feet is shorter than 0.10 miles (it's only 8 characters as opposed to 10 characters, counting spaces)!
  6. Yes. You've got to get them into a program on your PC (unless you want to try entering them all using your GPS ). Running pocket queries and downloading them into your PC program is fairly easy. And then you need to pick which ones you want to download into your GPSr. Because I have almost 4,000 waypoints in GSAK and my 60CS only holds 1,000. Using GSAK, I can set up a filter and click on it and presto, I've got the waypoints that I want to download. I always leave a little space for manually entered waypoints. For instance, a multi-stage cache, or a new one that just came available and I don't have the time to download it and process it, etc.
  7. I've got the Garmin GPSMAP 60CS and I love it. It's fairly new. It doesn't have expandable memory, but it comes with 59MB of internal memory. That's enough to load all of the road maps for Utah and still have room left over for other close places. It has autorouting, just not voice prompts. When I'm driving to the cache, I use the "follow roads" option. Then when I get out of the car, I change to off-road. It has a big color screen for a hand-held which is easily visible in any light condition. I got it from Amazon.com for about $300. It can store 1,000 waypoints. It has a Geocache option so that when you find the cache, it will change it to a found cache and log it in it's calendar. It then will ask you if you want to find the next closest cache. All you have to do is click go and your off to the next cache. What I do for paper-less caching is I'm a premium member on geocaching.com. This allows me to define pocket queries. I've set up 8 queries that cover the entire state of Utah. I then use GSAK on the PC. It has an option to get my emails and download the queries and import them into the data base. I then export them out of GSAK and import them into CacheMate on my Sony Clie. Now I've got everything I need to go caching without carrying a bunch of paper around with me.
  8. It worked for me. I set up a query that returned 500 caches within about 65 miles of a location. I then changed the radius to be 50 miles and ran it again. This time I got 446 caches. So it limited the radius to 50 miles.
  9. Ok, do the "Find" thing again, making sure to select "By Name" this time. Then when you get a list of all of your waypoints, cursor down the list and count them. How many are there in the list? Glad to hear you found them.
  10. Which 23 waypoints are you trying to download to your GPSr? Maybe there's something in the names.
  11. On your GPS, push your Find button (lower button on the left hand side). In the popup menu, highlight "Waypoints" and push the selector button. Now select either option and push the selector button. If you look at the upper right of the screen, the "X" should be highlighted. Using the selector button, select the menu icon just to the right of the "X" and press the selector button. In the popup menu, highlight "Delete All" and press the selector button. In the confirmation menu, highlight the "Yes" answer and press the selector button. This will delete all of your waypoints from the GPS. Now try your download again and let us know how it goes.
