  1. I would appreciate any assistance, I brought myself an Oregon 600 for Christmas and I'm beginning to wish i'd stuck with the Dakota 20, which is much simpler.

    I went geocaching this morning and all was fine until I set the unit to navigate to way point "Carpark" in order to get back to the car. We whwer in the woods and after walking for a whilst Spotted some cars in the distance, I said to my hubby that' s not where our car is parked because the GPS says we are a mile away. Anyway it was where our car was parked because even though we where navigating to car park the compass leading us towards another geocache! I printed out a manual when I got home and sorted the compass problem :)

    BUT now when you select geocaches it say no results found, try adjusting search parameters!!

    However they are still showing on the map page and when its plugged into the computer they are still there!


    Can anyone explain what I have done and help me get them back :blink:

  2. I wonder if anyone can advise me.

    I have owned my Garmin Dakota 20 for the last 3-4 years. It has been playing up for a couple of months missing some caches that I have manually downloaded. Today I have plugged it into my laptop deleted all the caches I have stored, so that I can download another pocket query.

    It starts off ok with the picture on the gps screen of the gps linked to the computer but after a few seconds it vanishes and each time I try to down load it is giving an error message saying gps not attached!!


    Now I have been geocaching for 7 months and am hooked, I would like to upgrade my Garmin etrex H for a GPS that is able to download caches direct from the computer and do paperless caching. But what would you recommend? The Oegon 450t, dakota 10, or lowrance out and back? :)

  4. I have recently had a cache muggled so to prevent it happening again, I have changed the location slightly. However when I try to change the co-ordinates on my listing by going into log a visit it keeps coming up with an error code. I have editied my description to show the new co-ordinates but is there anything else I can do?

  5. Hi I am fairly new to this so please be gentle.

    It looks as if I might have had one of my caches muggled :laughing: and wondered, is it just a case of replacing it now and apologising to the person who's coin was in the cache. Or do I also have to log in the new log book everyone who has visited the cache previously? Or is there anything else I should do?

  6. Hi, I'm new to this so please be gentle!


    I am interested in placing a cache at a woodland trust site close to my home. I have downloaded the application form and taken co-ordinates, from the area where I would like to place it. However I am unsure what I should be putting where it says "walk-in" description using features identifiable from the 1:50,000 OS map.

    I had intended to describe the area where I intend to place the cache, e.g. on the right hand perimetre of the wood approxinately 66ft in where there is an area of rubble/bricks covered in moss, but this doesn't contain any info from the OS map.
