  1. Can someone please explain in plain english what the difference is between grabbing a TB and Retrieving a TB? It seems someone has retrieved one of my TBs without loging the cache it was in as found! Is my TB pysicaly in the cache but moved virtually? If so what's the purpose?java script:emoticon('', 'smid_24')
  2. Ok, I have an e-Trex Vista Hcx that has a geo-cach mode. I can download co-ords, cache name, etc; from my computer to my GPS. If I have Cachemate for my Palm Z22; what do I need GSAK for?
  3. I live in Maine and have just started Caching. In the snow! I have no idea how much easier it is in the two months of summer we have. I can't wait! I have found as well as hid caches in the snow. I think from now on I will enter winter difficulty ratings in my Cache log. IE (Summer: 1.5/2.5) If on ground hide but can get there without snow shoes (2.5/2.5) If cache is up above ground but need snow shoes (1.5/3.5) This is just an example but maybe Groundspeak can address this.

    Palm Z22

    Is anyone using a Palm Z22 PDA to do paperless caching? If so how?
  5. Hey guys, thanks! I had no clue I could buy a PDA so cheap. I forgot how long they've been around.
  6. My favorite feature is the pocket queries and the ability to incorporate them into "paperless caching". It saves an incredible amount of time versus manually loading coordinates and printing or noting cache descriptions and hints. Aside from that, the free pass to the local Groundspeak gym and indoor pool is definitely a bonus. And the best free advice money can buy!
  7. I think I heard I could go paperless with a PSP (Pocket Play Station). Is this true? This would be great. My wife (Shotgun) hates handling all the paperwork while we are caching. I would love a PSP to play video games on, but she would think that would be a waste of money. Not if I could use it for geo-caching! (My wife is hooked BIGTIME). If I'm not mistaken, isn't a PSP less money than a PDA. Also, would I load the cache info to my pute first, then to my PSP; or could I load the info directly to the PSP? I'm no tecno geek by any means, I'm 59 years old and I can't even text-msg. OMG LOL! Yea yea I know. 59, PSP?

  8. If you are hooked to a external power source (ie: USB or automobile 12V DC converter) The back light will stay on. You can also adjust the time it stays on in the system menu.
  9. I may be wrong, but I beleave when you download a map to your memory card it automaticaly erases the prior maps.
  10. I too just got a Vista HCx. Did you get a "Trip And Waypoint Manager" CD? I think you have to load this into your' pute, and use that. I haven't figured out how to load waypoints to my "Mapsource" Maps though. I can load way points to the manager on my pute and then transfer all the data onto my e-Trex. This is all I can offer. I too am a newbei. Never fear, there are alot of helpful fellow "Cachers out there. We'll both get the answers we need.
  11. It looks like this: LOL!! I've got a dumber question....................What is a pocket query?java script:emoticon('', 'smid_17')
  12. I hope you didn't have too many waypoints! I got my e-Trex Vista HCx for Christmas and had about 10 or 15 GC icons and other waypoints loaded on it, when I did the same thing. I had to re-enter them all! I have no clue what button I pushed!......Then again I don't know how to text message. Welcome to the idiot's club. java script:emoticon('', 'smid_10')
