  12. Well I don't know how many miles I clocked up this bank holiday weekend but it would have been a lot less if I'd realised there were so few paths in Dalby Forest. Of particular note was a cache that was 200 feet away , but also 300 feet vertically

  19. Hi, as well as using my gps for caching I intend to use it in my military guise. What I'd really like to do is represent a 3d profile of a track I've seen memory map and thats amazing but I understand I'd need to purchase OS maps to use it. Is there any sw that would allow me to save maps off the web and use them to plot a track on , then display that profile in 3d ?

  21. I made mine , never could resist a challenge I used an old serial cable and trimmed down a morrisons fuel card until it fitted in the slot on my etrex Using a safety pin I made 3 holes in the end and cut a slot for the key between the power and data in pin. As garmin publish the pins outs anyway it wasnt too hard a job to bodge one together I'll get round to buying a plug off ebay one day for four quid and cobble up a spare mobile car charger socket for some power I thought there may be some trouble with the wires pulling out of the holes when I unplugged it but some sellotape fixed that
