  1. For some time now I’ve been scanning photos to posting on the Geocaching wed site with great results. I’ve just purchased an Olympus D550 digital camera. I know I have the option to shoot images at a low resolution (640 x 480) and be able to post them.

     

    My question is, if I shoot images at a photo quality resolution (1984 x 1488). There is a setting that I can re-save the image to a lower resolution through HP Director (software, HP Photosmart-230, 4 x 6 color printer) but I still cannot get any lower than 114kb, from a 702kb image.

     

    Is there an easy way to get a 700kb resolution to under 100kb’s? Dose anyone know of any free software that can be downloaded?

  2. I found Rayovac 1 hour battery charger (with car adapter) at Wal-Mart for $30.00. The charger was rated for 1800mAh. Can I use Energizer batteries, which are rated at 1850mAh? Or do you need to match (mAh) batteries / charger?

     

    Dose anyone use Monster batteries?

  3. All of my photos are originally scanned as a 4 x 6 at 400dpi, cropped to about a 3”, and then saved as JPG. compressed at 75%.

     

    Before compression the photos are at 350 - 400kb, with compressing 60 – 98kb’s. Photos come out very clear and sharp.

  4. Checking to see if anyone is using a Ram Mount suction base in a 2001 Dodge Caravan.?

     

    Before buying one I want to be sure the base will secularly mount to the dash, my main concern is the dash doesn’t have much of a flat surface and the dash has somewhat of a textured finish.

  6. Wal-mart $179.00: Bushnell 4X, range from 10 - 800 yards +-1 yard. Can pick up flags playing golf to 200 yards, trees to 400 plus yards.

     

    I bought it for bowhunting, but finding it useful for caching when giving clues in yards.

  7. Just as I was about to log this reply, logscaler beat me to it.

     

    Onestep, pick up a data cable for your Magellan 315, you can download new software version 3.15. After getting to .01 miles, you will count down in feet. I’ve seen my M-315 get to within 4 feet of a cache and it was right there. I have the file if you need it, just send me your e-mail address. icon_wink.gif

  9. Stay away from the 310 icon_mad.gif. For another $30 - $40, look at the Magellan 315 icon_wink.gif, will have all the bells and whistles you will need.

     

    Do a search at the top of the forum for Magellan 315 see for yourself what other cachers thing.
