  1. On the main page there is a search box for City. State, Coordinates, etc To the right of that is a box that reads 'Filters'. Click on Filters, and there is an option there for 'Geocache name contains (keywords)
  2. Thanks JP. That will certainly cause a little extra effort to figure out if they are the posted or corrected coords.
  3. Once you have the GPX file of your finds, you can use the Garmin program called POI Loader, and it will load all your finds as POI points, which is nice because it doesn't take up any of your Geocache limits in the unit.
  4. I have a question about downloading live cache data. If you have updated the coords of a Mystery, does it download the updated coords or the posted coords? And does it display a different icon for update coords? Or are they all the same blue mystery symbol?
  5. That is something GC would have to send in their API, and the Garmin would have to be coded to receive it. And one or both don't do it. I agree, it is a pain. I wish they would show.
  6. That is great news. Now if they could just get the 750T to show corrected coords that were entered on GC, it would be perfect.
  7. This is seriously awesome. I love your geocaching scripts, and this is another one that I am using now.
  8. lordelph, You may want to visit the Northern Virginia Geocaching Organization (NoVAGO) at http://www.novago.org/forum/ Alexandria is part of their caching area, and the hiders are all online there. You have to register (it is free) to post a topic, but I would guarantee you would get a nice list of caches from the cachers there. Good luck!
  9. I've been using this every weekend and really love how all my cache data is at my fingertips. I have a feature request, though. Is there a way to add an option for us to tap on the 'Compass Interference' warning box so that it goes away? Even if it went away just for 60 seconds at a time, that would be great. My iPad case is magnetized, and iGeoKnife won't remove that warning unless I remove it from the case and do the figure 8 calibration. And then, of course, as soon as it goes back in the case the box appears again. Also, having that message pop up over the maps makes it difficult to see what is under it. Since I don't use it for navigation, I don't need the compass. So if I could either permanently or temporarily disable that warning box, that would be great. don
  10. To answer your original question, I think the terrain should be the highest terrain in the bunch. The difficulty should be at least the highest difficulty in the bunch, plus at least 1 star for having to get them all. This challenge is similar to what you are wanting to do, I think: Santa Ana Triangular Challenge Maybe that can help you set yours up.
  11. Do you have a reference waypoint for the start of the Route 66 trail? Edit - Found it. 001-Route 66
  12. I concur with the others - it will be hot! I started it solo in June of last year and it was 111 degrees. I did 132 of them before I called it quits. lol Just a few things to keep in mind if you decide to try it. Food and drinks - bring some with you! You are not going to see places to eat for a long period of time. And fuel. It is a long way from gas stations. Be prepared to leave the trail to go find gas. Good luck if you do it!
  13. Thanks ShowStop, I'll add that one to my list! I was hoping someone had already done the work and created a list somewhere. I don't mind doing it, and have started a bookmark with the few I've found so far. Another one I found was the rock used in the opening scenes of the Lone Ranger: A mask, a white horse and a silver bullet
  14. I am heading out to CA, and am interested in finding caches that are near movie and TV locations, like: Batman's BatCave Mash Cache Picture Perfect Hollywood Sign Very Brady Cache Anyone know of a good bookmark that has lists like this, or just know of some cool ones to find? Thanks!
  15. Garmin MapSource will allow you to do this. You create the route in MapSource and then upload the route into your GPS unit. Your particular unit can hold up to 20 different routes.
  16. On the Map screen, press Menu and then Change Data Fields.
  17. Are you seeing any issues with saving profiles? I played with a 610 yesterday, and after setting up the geocaching profile to my liking, I turned the unit off. When I turned it back on, it had reset to the defaults.
  18. I should claim that a child drew this for me. lol

  20. Amazon also has a sample of the book available for download. Reading that now. So far it is pretty cool.
  21. It should at least be an option for the watchers to allow the owners to know they are watching. In other words, if I say it is OK, then the owner should be able to see my name as a watcher. If I say NO, then they shouldn't. There are some caches I watch that, for various reasons, I don't want the owner to know who I am. Generally that applies to owners I don't particularly like.
  22. Got the coins today, they are very nice! And the suncatcher is really cool.
