  1. Blindleader,if you take a closer look,you will see on the second link that there are TLE's for "GPS Operational" satellites.When these TLE's are loaded,a "batch prediction" can then be run giving information as to what satellites should be in sight of the co-ord's you enter.

    I don't have a telescope,but the program still works for me ;)

  2. Anyone travelling on the South Western Highway between Walpole and Manjimup like to do where's in a name at this point: S34 46 425 E116 30 xxx (176 should be right on the highway)


    South co-ordinates are from "Fivegallon",i tracked the "easting" to the highway for an easy hit


    Another option:At E149 41 xxx (339?) should be close to the Old Hume Highway,approximately 3km S/E of Goulburn

  3. I spend a quite a lot of time on "GPS Units and Software" Topic,trying to take in the wealth of information it provides.


    Quite often people are posting very useful links to software etc....


    Any chance of "pinning" a topic where people can post their links,with a brief description as to what it's pointing to?


    Might be useful

  4. I personally have no probs with this thread,but there appears to be two rules.....

    I am glad for you


    I very glad that you solved the F problem by defining it ahead of time.


    To bad that this thread has nothing to do with geocaching.


    But I am glad for you


    And subsequently locked

    What kind of training?




    Or maybe i missed something and got confused :D

  5. Jaime,there's more chance of "that cool foam stuff" affecting you rather than animals,environment etc....


    This stuff is dangerous,if you use it be sure to wear gloves,a long sleeve shirt,long pants/trousers,and a decent pair of goggles.


    Whatever you do,DO NOT let the kids near it.


    Be careful,and good luck decorating your hide.

  6. Thanks for all the feedback so far.Interesting comments and preferences.

    Boromir;glad you mentioned about antennae,i'm just searching the forums at the moment looking for comparisons.

    Thanks once again for your input.

    For the record;i have a Magellan map330,but am looking at possibly an Etrex Vista(mainly due to the size factor)

  7. On my pc i have the WORLDWIDE BASEMAP,this is a lightly detailed map of the world that allows you to build up a database anywhere on the map.

    The basemap on my GPS is the Australian Basemap,which is very well detailed.

    I purchased the worldwide basemap as i travel a lot for my work.I would like to take the detailed basemap from the gps and incorporate this to the lightly detailed worldwide basemap on my pc.

  8. I have a Magellan Map330 loaded with the Australian Basemap.How do i download this to my Worldwide Basemap on my laptop.

    I can download waypoints/routes/tracks ok.

    The reason i want to do this is to create tracks etc using the laptop and then upload them to the GPS later.Working on the laptop is simpler for measuring distances etc.
