  1. I used Loctite extreme on my old e-trex vista about five years ago and it is still holding.
  2. I use my Garmin CSx for just the thing you are talking about, although the small screen sometimes makes it difficult to see in the car. A nuvi is certainly easier to see while driving but does not do as well on foot while geocaching. It's a trade off.
  3. Wait a bit and get one of the new Garmin 62's.
  4. that's not really true, at least not for all GPS devices. i've calibrated the compass on my oregon 450 once and never had to recalibrate since, and i'm using regular NiMH batteries which are a couple of years old. For the Vista it is, and I own both the original and the HCx. Page 28 http://www8.garmin.com/manuals/eTrexLegend...wnersManual.pdf I had never had this problem with my CSx until last weekend. a recalibration seemed to help for a bit but then it would point the wrong direction a short time later. I finally changed the batteries and the problem went away.
  5. A geocaching couple (husband and wife) live near me who both have TB tatoos. Hers is on the ankle, his on the arm.
  6. Does anyone know how to change easy GPS so that the cache name is sent to the GPS rather than the GC #?
  7. My old CSx died last fall and I replaced it with one with the newer chipset. The old machine generally gave me 3 to 4 m accuracy, the new one frequenty gives me 2 m accuracy. Or so it says. I can't say as I see a difference between the two in normal use.
  8. I saw it at Canadian Tire in Grand Falls last weekend.
  9. I purchased one for my wife for Christmas from GPS Central and she loves it. We have a number of caches loaded in it but we haven't gone looking for any yet. It is definately paperless as it has all info. except for the logs.
  10. I have software version 4.00 on my 60CSx and just ran WebUpdater and 4.10 is still not offered. It said I have latest software version. Jerry Yes, you are right about that. I have been trying to figure out whats up. My GPS says software version 4.10 and GPS software version 2.10m. One would think that if they were shipping new units with 4.10 that they would offer it as an update with webupdater.
  11. I believe he has a CSx with version 4.10 and wishes to go back to version 4.0, as his maps aren't working properly. His girlfriend has one with 4.00 and it works well. I am running 4.10 and have no issues.
  12. I bought a new CSx a month or so ago (to replace my old one which gave up the ghost) and it came with a 1 gig card as well.
  13. Garmin nroute will do the trick if you can find a download for it somewhere. Fugawi will work as well. Not sure about OziExplorer.
  14. The last CSx I bought came with a 1 GB card. You may have the same luck.
  15. I use a CSx. I may be wrong about this... . I looked at a Dakota and don't think I would trade my CSx for anything less than an Oregon, if then. It appeared to me that the Dakota was somewhat similar to an Oregon with fewer features?? I am sure that someone will step in and let us know about this.
  16. I have one that I use for running. I have had it under the sleeve of my light jacket and it works fine. I haven't tried it with a heavier jacket. I have had mine for a few years and am quite happy with it.
  17. I recently replaced my CSx and it has firmware version 4.1
  18. Yes you can. (Although I haven't tried it yet) Have a look at this: http://freecaching.blogspot.com/2007/07/ge...d-nano-and.html
  19. I am now the proud owner of a new CSx. I needed a GPS right away. I may send the old one in for a repair quote, but it is an older one. I got it when they first came out. Fours years ago? I thought about a Oregon but I am all set up for the CSx and it served me well until it crashed. I am finding that it is more accurate (or so it says) than the old one. It generally has 2 to 3 m accuracy, where the old one was often 5 to 7 m. Also, it has firmware version 4.1. The newest on the Garmin website is 4.0. what's up with that?
  20. Get yourself a RAM mount. You won't be disappointed.
