  1. Lee, thanks for the help. That is the only app that was turned off. It is now working. I'll blame it on the kids as they always seem to change something when they get my phone (lol).
  2. It seems that since I have updated to the latest version of the i-phone app, my "geocaching app" has been lost. When trying to "find nearby caches", it has never been able to find it's current location and is stuck on the last caches that it found way back when. I have other Apps that use GPS and they work just fine with a full "strength" bar. Has anyone else had this problem or know what the problem may be? Thanks, Steven
  3. smithdk, you are correct. I had deleted all of the old local waypoints from my GPS. I sorted by name and they are there. Thanks for the help and have a great cachin' weekend. Thanks again for the help, Steven
  4. That is what I am doing, opening the PQ with GSAS. I tried 2 different usb cables as well and I never get the prompt that a new device was connected to the computer. Thanks, Steven
  5. I have not been too active with Geocaching this year and now I am having problems. I was going to do a little cachin' this weekend but for some reason, my GPS and computer are not talking. I ran a PQ and updated my GSAK software to the latest version. I run the PQ as normal and click "send to GPS" and get the normal screen that I remember. It says ???? number of waypoints were downloaded but there is nothing in my GPS. I have downloaded many many PQ's to the same GPS in the past so it did work at one time. Does anyone have any pointers to get me going again? Thanks, Steven
  6. I think the TFTC logs and copy and paste logs are pretty lame if you ask me. There is a state park here in Texas that I have around 50 caches in. It really irritates me when I get 20 C&P or TFTC from the same person. I always try and leave a short log. Thanks - CachinSpree
  7. I am just south of Houston and would like to hide one somewhere down here. Maybe even make it a TB for everyone to watch as it moves around the area. Thanks - CachinSpree
  8. Personally, I enjoy trying to be FTF. It's a great way to possibly get to meet new cachers. There are about 8 cachers in my area that have the bug as well. That's what makes it fun. Knowing that you are in a race to get to the cache first. There were three posted a few nights ago that I ran into a good friend of mine whille on FTF run. Unfortionatly, he beat me to the first two by just a few minutes. We left together and I followed him to the last one. When we pulled up to Cotton Pickin' Cache , there were two other cachers already at GZ scurrying around trying to find it. It turned out to be a mini event at a cache. After we found it, we stood around and talked for about 15 minutes. Thanks - CachinSpree
  9. Can a picture be downloaded with the description of a cache or just in the "log" section of the cache page? If it can, how do I go about loading one? I was wanting to make a picture viewable with the description when the cache page opens. Thanks - CachinSpree
  10. Thanks for the help. I looked at the link and it appears to be more like using a Palm PDA and not the same type of app I have on my I-phone. Unlike the I-phone, you have to run a PQ and download to the Blackberry before leaving the house and you are not able to find the caches from wherever you are at. Is this correct? Thanks - CachinSpree
  11. A friend of mine just purchased a new Blackberry and was asking me if there was a geocaching app like the one I have on my I-phone? Thanks - CachinSpree
  12. Can the City Navigator software be used with the 60CS?
  13. I am trying to download from the CD and it asked for a unlock code. There is no 8 or 25 digit number anywhere on the CD or the CD cover. I bought the software from The GPS Store. I saw an option to purchase a unlock code but you would think that new software would at least have 1 code. Thanks - CachinSpree
  14. I purchased the City Navigator Norhth America 2009 and can't find a 8 or 25 digit number anywhere on the CD case? The software shows me a 8 digit coupon code of 12345678 but it does not work. It says that coupn code has already been consumed. This is my very first time to even try City Navigator, so how did it get consumed if I have never done this before? Thanks - CachinSpree
  15. Thanks for the information. I guess I will stay away from E-bay and look at some of the gps stores like Tiger GPS. Thanks - CachinSpree
  16. I am going to purchase the City Navigator North America 2009 and have a few questions. While looking on E-bay, I see lots of "updates". Do I need to get the software first or is the update the same? Where do you recommend buying the software from and do I get the DVD or SD card? I have the Garmin GPSMAP 60CSx unit. Thanks - CachinSpree
  17. Will the Palm Tungsten E 32 MB PDA be OK for paperless caching. I bought a used Zire 31 about 3 months ago that worked good but the touch screen quit working on it already. Thanks- CachinSpree
  18. Thanks for the info. I was not trying to outsmart the reviewer, just misinterpreted the rules. I have already sent a pm to my reviewer about the cache. Thanks - CachinSpree
  19. If the great difficulty is a river, or canyon, or some other obstruction, you should talk with your reviewer. They will often make exceptions if there is a physical barrier between the two spots. Thanks for the info. That is exactly what the barrier is. Thanks - CachinSpree
  20. From what I have read about changing coordinates, the rules say that it can not be moved more than 528' without going through a reviewer. With that being said, I found a particular spot that I really like but it is within the 528' rule. My question is, once the cache is approved and published, can I move the cache to the other location (the one I like) and just update the coordinates? If I was to move it, it would be around 350' from another one of my caches but there is no way of going from cache to cache without great difficulty. Thanks - CachinSpree
  21. I hate to give out my secret, but this is what I am working on. I bought 5 steel animal leg traps off of E-bay. I am going to set the traps and then weld them open so they can not close (would not be good). Then I am going to place a film canister on the "trip plate". They should make for some interesting logs. Thanks - CachinSpree
  22. I have tried 4 different PQ and they all tell me the same thing. Could it be my computer or something wrong wit hthe GSAK software or possible my internet service (AT&T)?
  23. I am trying to do a PQ and I am GSAK is giving me an error saying that the zip file is corrupt. I ran my first PQ a few weeks ago and everything went ok. This is my second try and itis not working. When I click on the OK button after GSAK opens, that is when I get the error. Am I doing something wrong. The eror code says that it could be a XP problem. Thanks - CachinSpree
  24. I guess I will wait and see if any comments come up in the future logs before asking to remove the picture. Thanks for the info - CachinSpree
