  1. Ben Nevis seems to be a worthwhile cache for such an occasion. I really recommend approaching it from behind though as this route is a lot more picturesque and you don't have to fight your way through masses of tourists. When I went up the last time I had quite the culture shock turning the corner onto the summit and finding it milling with people. The easy tourist route is probably better for coming down though. And I can echo HH's statement about stupid people: we met a guy on the way who went up in flipflops and bathrobe ! <_< (we were wearing three layers and there was still snow about) .


    I don't think I want to go up again so soon after my last trip but I wish you a lot of fun and a good hunt!



  2. Thanks for the quick reply.


    there's an option in the conversion process to enable the long description support. That option exists in GSAK's CacheMate export dialog as well... did you enable it?


    I have "Enable long cache descriptions" in GSAK ticked, but where do I enable it in cache mate?


    If you do have the option enabled, I don't know how much more I can raise the limit. Palm OS fields have to be set to a specific length, and I can't set it too high without pushing the limits on older devices. The runtime memory for Palm OS programs is pretty scarce.


    I don't know anything about Palm OS programming, but doesn't it support dynamic datastructures at all? It seems pointless to reserve the same memory for all lengths of descriptions. *sigh*


    Could we perhaps have a warning when truncated entries are imported into the palm database ?



  3. First let me say that the program has revolutionised the way I geocache, so thank you very much.


    However I ran into the problem that the cache description gets truncated in certain circumstances which can be really annoying. I got caught out twice already with elaborate multies (GCH59Y and GC6AA9) and would be very grateful if this limit could be lifted in the next version.


    To describe it a little better: I have selected the cache in gsak (where the description is still complete) and upload it directly to the palm. After the import into cachmate a bit at the end is missing and replaced by "[truncated]". Not very helpful. ;)


    Thanks for looking into it
