  1. Thanks for the reply, it appears the card wasn't seated properly in the GPS. How dumb I didn't check that first. Loving this new GPS though, blows away my older 60CS.
  2. Thanks for the replies, it appears the card wasn't seated properly in the GPS. How dumb I didn't check that first.
  3. I just got my Garmin 64ST, installed the City Navigator maps and also a 32GB sd card. The problem is I'm not seeing the card listed in Basecamp. Am I missing something here or have I done something wrong?
  4. I got my new GPS, finally. Bought the CN maps and installed them. What I can't figure out is I installed a 32GB sd card, but don't see it in Basecamp. Is there something I'm missing here?
  5. Thanks for the info. Yeah I'm a bit confusing. Guess I was used to my 60CS. Routing is not a priority, but would be nice to have. I got what I got and I'm sure it'll do more than I need. Mostly I need the topo maps for an upcoming trip to Southern Utah and finding places way off the beaten path. The price for the bigger units was an issue too, but this is not something I'll be using everyday or for that that often probably. Mostly for areas I've never been before.
  6. I'm not really concerned about the street routing as much as just entering all the places I want to visit and have roads lead me to them if I get lost ;-) I have my smartphones mapping if I really need it. It just would be nice to have one unit, like the one I bought LOL So I got I can use Navigator, but isn't it discontinued? I know you can still buy it though. And the Nuvi maps won't work with the 64ST. What program is used for making a waypoints map now? It's just funny how much has changed. Thanks, Dave
  7. Since 2003 I've been using a Garmin 60CS. I finally needed to upgrade and got the 64ST, which I get tomorrow. It seems everything I knew has changed as far as maps, making routes and waypoints, or so it seems. The hardest thing I'm trying to understand is the mapping/routing. It comes with the preloaded TOPO maps and the basemap, but I can't figure out what is needed for detailed street maps and routing. Everything I've read is as clear as mud to me. Can anyone bring this old timer up to date? Thanks.
  8. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to how cache pages print out, but they sure don't print out like they look. I wish gc.com would fix this, it didn't use to be a problem years ago. frustrating and a wase of paper!
  9. No that's for normal PQ's. I asked about the ones along a route, at this URL. http://www.geocaching.com/my/userroutes.aspx. After searching a bit I was able to find how to delete them, be it one at a time!
  10. How do I delete the PQ's for caches along a route that I've created. They seem to be stacking up and I can;t figure out how to get rid of them.
  11. Also what gets me is what you see on the printer friendly page/screen is not what prints nor is what is shown when you do print preview.
  12. Ditto here, it's absolutley terrible. Two pages to print about a paragraph of text and one map. the old version was much better IMO. Is there some way to have actuall printer friendly, cacher friendly pages?
  13. I don't believe so, it's one of the things we've complained about to Garmin. When you email them Also tell them to let us use the full notes window, thats the big one!
  14. From the logs: November 18 by ChainGang (2 found) OK, enough cachers have committed to bringing travel bugs. We will drop the cache off right where we found it. We expect that Mr. Run will collect our booty for us and leave those TBs in the same place.
  15. It's all about the preparation, plain and simple! when we did our 144 in 15 hrs we were still ready to do more but had only planned on doing 100, so 44 or so were a last minute add on. But if anyone can do it I think firefighters can, we're used to working long hard hours! I'm already planning another big number trip, but unfortunately the density out here won't let me get any numbers that high. I've done too many caches in too many area and there isn't many virgin areas left. Congrats!
  16. It's always good when the owner makes someone feel like an a** for asking a legit question and having a bit of fun. Keep up the perfect work, sorry to disturb you, back to lurk mode!
  17. It would be nice to get a reply from the TPTB when a request is asked for. Either say NO WAY, or WE CAN DO THAT, or maybe GOOD IDEA! Just something to let us know they actually read the forum about the website!
  18. Yeah there isn't any reason that open it up and let us use the whole notes window. Why have a 3 line window and only let you use 1-1/2 lines? DUMB! EMAIL THEM, CALL THEM. Make them change it!
  19. HEY I'm only going off what others, not here, are saying. I've done my damage already. I just asked a question.
  20. See once again no matter what gc.com does it's controversial and not clear cut!
  21. Well on the listing page they make the reference to the micro being 35mm cannister in size. The regular Altoids container is 3x the size of a 35mm cannister, 3X. That's why I say small not micro. I mean is it really micro? No, but the breath strips one defintely is!
  22. How about when you're on a watch list or receiving a cache notice as an owner where a photo has been placed in a log, that you are notified? I just happened to be going thru some of my TB and cache pages today and for the first time saw photos I never would have unless I happened to be going thru them today! I'll hide now
  23. There's starting to be quite the little controversy about the new cache size, small. I take it as anything smaller than a 35mm cannister is a micro. Small would be anything slightly bigger than a 35mm cannister up to 4"to 6" Tupperware? So in the small category I'm placing Altoids tins since they can hold more objects than a 35mm cannister, as well as decon containers and any small Tupperware containers. Feedback?
  24. I got over 100 caches, I'd rather just be able to open the cache page and see a list of names of who's watching.
  25. Well 2 out of 3 isn't too bad, But I thought Jeremy mentioned once before about being able to see who was watching your caches someday?
