  1. Yup and the way geocachng is growing in Europe I think their European membership will outnumber the USA soon!
  2. Well according to the news the Euro and USD will soon reach parity and then the USD will over take the Euro. Once 30 Euros is less then $30 I will be cancelling my USA premium subscription and and going to a European one. See how easy that is? No need to complain....just take advantage of the situation.
  3. I already have the 62s. Can we just stick to the topic here? I'm not going to outline every single reason why I want to upgrade to the 64. Help? HEY SARGE!! Stick to the topic!
  4. OSM maps work fine. Pirated or bootleg copies of maps that you buy online will not work. From the Garmin website: "GPSMAP 64st comes with a built-in worldwide basemap with shaded relief, preloaded TOPO 100K and a 1-year subscription of BirdsEye Satellite Imagery for a photo-realistic view. Adding more maps is easy with our array of detailed topographic, marine and road maps. With 8 GB of onboard memory and microSD™ card slot, you can conveniently download TOPO 24K maps and hit the trail, plug in BlueChart® g2 preloaded cards for a great day on the water or City Navigator NT® map data for turn-by-turn routing on roads (see maps tab for compatibility). In addition, the 64st is compatible with Garmin Custom Maps, a map format that allows you to transform paper and electronic maps easily into downloadable maps for your device, for free." https://buy.garmin.com/en-US/US/on-the-trail/handhelds/gpsmap-64st/prod140024.html
  5. Nope, I don't understand because I am using OSM maps on mine with no problem.
  6. OSM maps are not pirate maps since they are free anyway. I install them to an SD Card using Base Camp. I get my maps at http://openmtbmap.org/. I paid the 20 Euro to get the maps precompiled but he provides complete instructions to do it yourself and download the free maps on his site. He also runs www.velomap.org.
  7. That is great info regarding the .gcd file. First thing I did when I got my 64 was remove the 250.000 caches. I gave the files if any wants them.
  8. OSM work fine on mine. Price will come down when the 66 is released.
  9. I checked out the Live Track and it is cool. I like the fact that someone can follow my progress, especially when I am alone in remote locations. I don't think Live Track is real-time. When i checked it out it was sending update in near real-time which was about 5 minute intervals. Maybe it is a setting but I have not found it yet. I have one bug. When I do the safe remove of USB device on windows it locks up on the page warning you that you are now on external power. Am unable to move the menu to TURN OFF so I have to do a hard shut down. Seems when I do this I lose pages I have added to my Page Sequence. I will check on my MAC and see if I get the same lockup upon removing from the OS.
  10. WOOOO HOOOO!! Just got mine in the mail!! First one in Germany!
  11. I am the same. Got plenty of lost trackables so I just recycle the numbers. Was buying 10 TBs every two weeks but stopped about 6 months ago and don't plan to buy any more.
  12. Actually the punch line is....Because they look for a container (can) under every bush.
  13. Warum dürfen Geocacher nicht in die Sauna? - is doch logisch: weil sie unter jedem Busch ne Dose suchen
  14. But there will be no large decrease. No German that I have spoken to cares about this one bit.
  15. No. The most bizarre thing is that EUers keep bumping this thread thinking that GS will care and explain their reasoning for the price difference. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
  16. Sure I get it. Life is not fair. Go ahead....hold off on paying your PM. No one at GS....no....make that no one in the world will care.
  17. No they are not "TRYING" to forget this...they already have. OH NO!!! GS is trembling now!! They are gonna have to wait a few months before getting you 30 Euros or 30 Pounds! They might go out of business!!
  18. Are you serious? There are three options when you find a trackable. Retrieve, Grab, or Discover. Pretty straight forward for the average 3rd grader.
  19. I live in Germany and just auto renewed for $30.00! Cool!
  20. Went to Project Eck 2013 MEGA in Koblenz Germany on Saturday. Ask at least 150 people how they felt about this issue and none of them cared.
