  1. I just learned how to do this yesterday from the Podcaster Podcast http://www.podcacher.com/files/paperlessipod/iPod.htm Its pretty slick too, now I don't have to find me a cheep pda. But I did have to limit the number of caches to about 500 as when i tried 5,000 it made my iPod reboot
  2. Thanks for the feedback. I had a few comments I wanted to add. I see your point against the group post, as I have yet to place my own cache, so getting the different feedback is the silent reward. But in my post I did mention that each person could still add their own comment/experience to the group post. Maybe instead of thinking of it as one post, think of it more as a way to organize and display a group's find. Each person would always have the choice to post their own entry and not with the group.
  3. I had an idea today while out caching with 2 of my friends. It seems kind of repetitive that once we found a cache that we all go home, and then each of us end up writing a log to get credit for find the cache. To me it seems that this just fills up the log. My idea would be to have a group post, maybe it would work like the following. 1. One person steps forward to write a log, and can then invite others in the group to add to their comments. 2. Invited person gets a PM/email with a link and clicking that adds them to the group post, so they too get credit and if they wish they can add/edit the comment. To me this seems like it would eliminate a lot of repetitive posts that are like, I found this with person x and z, then person z posts and says they found it with x and y, etc... Thanks for you time [edited]
  4. Now GPScity say its out "Product Availability DUE 23 JUN" I have been holding out on getting any software till the new one comes out. Almost seems like they are just guessing over there.
  5. Thanks! Cron, that did the trick Just wondering, what does it mean to when you set "user waypoints" to off? I mean they still work, and show so it's kind of a strange naming convention. Oh well thanks again..
  6. Ever since I updated my Garmin 60csx to firmware 2.70, I noticed that if I am viewing the map of an area where I have points of interest(POI) uploaded at, they look like like grey circles, that using the rocker pad to control the arrow, I can't select the POI! I used to be able to do this before. Now it seem like the only way I can get to that point is to use the FIND button -> POI-> select the point/geocache from the list. Is anyone else noticing this? Any idea if its just me or the software? Thanks!
  7. This is great news, I will have to try it out tonight. I am wondering if loading from GASK directly to my 60csx is the same as loading them in with the POI loader? So far I have been using gask to mapsource to poi to garmin and I have about 2500 caches loaded. If I go direct how many can I load? Thanks
  8. I too have metro 5 and when I was in mapsource i created a waypoint to my uncle's house and then selected to go to that point, the autoroute page came up when I was hitting the page button on the gps. So I think i might do autorouting, but I am not sure how well
  9. Ah mine does not show the region drop-drown Maybe thats because of the metro 5.
  10. How are you "selecting a state"? Do you think this is something that I can't do because of the version of my mapping software?
  11. I know I have this area loaded. Do you have any that are like say 200+ miles away from where you are currently at? and you can use the find address to pull them up? Thanks for trying..
  12. I have metroguide usa v5 I did notice i can go to find - address - in the city boc hit enter, so the keyboard comes up then hit menu, and say select map, but i have about half the usa on there and they all say metroguide usa, so it would be a huge guessing game to find the area I want. So maybe it has something to do with the maps i have? If so that sucks
  13. So I am not on my normal computer, but I think when you go to export you caches to mapsource you can specify the name with the gsak codes, I think the one you want is the smart name one. It might be like %smart but I am not for sure. This might help you some http://www.gsak.net/board/index.php?showto...xport+key+words Oh i found it here are the codes http://gsak.net/help/hs10300.htm
  14. Hi, I am currently traveling and trying to use my 60csx to find an address not in my current area. It seems if I hit FIND - Address - it only comes up with citys that are within a certain distance from my current location. I read in the instructions that you can "change reference" but that only seems to work for current waypoints. Does anyone know how to do this? I know I can find it in mapsource on my computer and then mark the waypoint and transfer it to the gps, but I don't have access to that software. Thanks a ton!
  15. So I was able to load some geocache waypoints using the POI loader then only thing I don't get is now they don't show up as a geocache with the treasure chest icon, thus you can't mark a POI as found. I did notice if you got find -> POI -> pick one, then say save, then i can change the icon, and it show in the GC list in the find. But I am guessing is this copying it off the card back into the internal memory? Is this defeating the POI loader stuff. I wish ther was a way to have custum POI that are GC as well.. Is there a way? maybe I missed something. Thanks
  16. I just used my auto routing on my 60csx today and I noticed that if i miss a turn it just gave me a warning, but didn't pick a new route. I did find that if I hit menu, i could choose recalculate, but is there a way to have it do this automatically?
  17. I took was looking into this, but I was thinking it might be better to go for the Navigator package like on Amazon. Since its only like $30 more ($140) and you get a car mount & power cord. The downside is it says it comes with v6, but someone commented on there that they were about to upgrade for free to v7 but that was back in Sept, so I am not sure if garmin will still do that.

  18. duckit, How much was your 512 card? I saw one on buy.com for $48.99 but i wasn't sure if that was a good price.
  19. I too got my 60csx from Phil. Ordered it Saturday, and it shipped monday and arrived at work today
  20. Just ordered one from Lake Powell Marine Electronics, with the gift card kick back . I would just like to say Phil over there is the best! and with the quickest responses I have ever gotten on email. Even on Saturday today! Ok can't wait to start caching
  21. Doh I think I waited a tad to long, as per the email I got back from lakepowelldiscountmarineelectronics.com We do have it in stock, but we are unable to sell it for less than $499 to be compliant with Garmin's new Minimum Resale Price policy. I'm very sorry about this. Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you and have a great weekend.
  22. I think you were looking at the 60Cx and not the 60CSx, as my browser still says $535.70 U.S.D. for the csx http://www.garmin.com/products/gpsmap60csx/
