  1. The cheapest way that I've found, is a "flat rate" box at the US Post Office, and it's roughly $40 to ship it to you. You would probably be better off finding something on Ebay, since they seem to be going for under $10. However, let me know if you're still interested.
  2. It will most likely cost WAY more than the Palm is worth, since I live in Maryland in the US. I'll look into it and get back to you though.
  3. I was cleaning out my spare room to prep it for the new baby, and I came across the palm I used to use for paperless caching. It comes with the cradle/dock, a leather case, stylus, some screen protectors (one already on it), the software CD, and the quick start guide. It has a good scuff on the upper right corner, and there's a piece that was superglued on the back (looks like a triangle-shaped section broke off and we glued back on). I must have dropped it on one of my outings many, MANY years ago. Can't remember. However, the screen is flawless. It still works, although the battery doesn't seem to last as long as new. If anyone still uses an older GPSr, and still uses Cachemate or something similar for paperless, make me an offer. I may even just charge you for shipping, since I really have no use for this thing anymore. Otherwise, it goes in the Goodwill pile.
  4. What kind of condition is it in? Any pics? Also, what would you estimate the shipping would be to the 21236 area code? Thanks
  5. My father-in-law has the 60cx, and when we cache with both, his is always MUCH better at holding a good signal in heavy tree cover. His screen is a little bigger, so I find it easier to see the details when driving and hiking. The reason I want to upgrade to it, is the fact that I've seen it in action, side-by-side with my Legend Cx. I'm very impressed with it.
  6. I'm thinking of selling my Legend Cx to upgrade to a 60cx. I have City Navigator 8 installed already installed on it, but I was wondering if I'll be able to install CN8 on the 60cx as well? As of now, I've only installed it on this one GPSr.
  7. Probably. I sold my GPS 12 on Ebay for about $50 or $60 (I can't remember), in mint condition, and I included a data cable with it.
  8. I think I'm going to spend a while to see if I can find my photo posted for voting. Just in case... Here's my entry for the month.
  9. Thanks for the input but my ? is where can I purchase a large capacity microsd? Dave I've had nothing but good experiences with buying from newegg.com. I bought a 1 gig card from Ebay for the same price as theirs (about $30), and that included shipping. Which, by the way, is probably the quickest of any company I've dealt with.
  10. My father-in-law didn't go with the flag idea, but there is a beautiful memorial built from an I-beam from the WTC, that overlooks Sandy Hook, NJ and Manhattan. Here... Freedom Flight I didn't even bother with submitting one for Sept, since that was my idea also.
  11. I agree... Another forum that I belong to will give you a "time out", since it's considered spamming.
  12. I fired my Legend Cx up in my computer room this morning (window faces West) and was receiving #48 and #51, but not at the same time. i did get them both on my screen for about 5 seconds together, but I think it was losing #48 as it picked up #51. I didn't have to reset anything for them to show up though. #48 couldn't produce a solid bar on my GPSr today. Also, I live in North Eastern MD.
  13. I used mine all day yesterday, and it brought me within a few feet of each cache, except for one. All under some pretty thick tree cover. I have a feeling that 2.60 may have addressed a few more issues than Garmin has listed.
  14. FYI... There is an update on Garmin's website for firmware version 2.60 for the eTrex Legend Cx.
  15. There are a few people in my area who are just holding on to the Green Jeep TBs. That's pretty much all I'm going to say, but it's pretty annoying.
  16. Garmin eTrex Legend Cx Does exactly what I want it to do, and does it well.
  17. How much are you asking for it? Email me if you still have it.
  18. I was thinking of using my Jeep as a 3000lb "traveling" travel bug. Hook a tag up to the bumper and enter the coordinates here every time I park somewhere. It is guaranteed to be in the same spot, every day, for at least 10 hours while I'm at work! Just kidding.... or am I?
  19. "Biopsy the Travel Bug" "That Green-ish Thing" "The Part the Cat Didn't Eat" "Shower Drain Hairball Travel Bug" "It Came From the Dog Travel Bug" "Real Live Bug Travel Bug" Ok, I'm done.
  20. I wouldn't worry about "us", as geocachers, in general not having a big voice with the gov't. We have plenty of companies with PR clout and plenty of their $$ at risk if you ban geocaching. Garmin, Magellan, Cobra, their suppliers, retailers, etc. will not want to lose the kind of $$ that geocachers bring them. With this hobby gaining so much popularity over the past couple of years, these companies' profits have probably jumped considerably. I know that they would fight to keep their bottom line healthy.
  21. I've found that with certain MP3 players, you can remove the internal memory card, which sometimes resembles a compact flash card or microdrive, and use it in a digital camera. I was wondering if anyone has seen, or knows, what kind of chip/card the Garmin GPSRs use for internal memory. I don't have the guts to take apart mine to find out.
  22. I use a Garmin GPS 12. I've had it since 2001 and used it twice before I got into geocaching last month. Updated the software to V4.60 and it's been really accurate so far. I have this strange feeling that Santa Claus may bring a Garmin Quest GPS, but if not, I'll be looking into the Garmin 60CS.
