  1. And this is all well and good but I think the additional precision makes little difference in this game. It won't help much when I'm searching because the game uses three decimals. It might make my cache placements slightly more accurate but I'm convinced that the error factors at the time of placement and again at time of searching will make the additional precision a moot point. My question was not about accuracy or precision or how to round to three digits or just to add zeros. It is about the annoyance of having to deal with it when doing field puzzles. I will look into the recommendation of using older firmware but that doesn't seem like a viable solution. I assume periodic firmware updates contain important coding that I would be missing out on.
  2. They make it hard to see the screen during input and verification when making a waypoint.
  3. Anyway to change it back to the three decimal points that Garmin handhelds have always had? The Setup menu apparently doesn't have an option for that. We've had several Garmin handhelds: eMap, two Map60, two 62s, and the 64s which came with the additional point. It is annoying when out in the field, in the heat of summer or cold of winter, and rain on the screen to make waypoints.
  4. You must be thinking about the movies. I just checked our copy of The Sorcerer's Stone (1st book) and the copyright date is 1997. Bing says the first movie release date was November 16, 2001 so the word muggle was well known in 2002.
  5. When I earn one additional souvenir I get the popup (right side slide in) notification and then keep on getting it with each new cache find I post. This is redundant and kind of annoying. Shouldn't it just slide out when logging the cache that earned it and only for that cache?
  6. Agreed. We are at 19 years also and have enjoyed every bit of it.
  7. Thanks. I will look into this.
  8. Yep. This is the way I use it too. I want to see where all the caches are first and then make my route. Thanks for the info everyone.
  9. When on a cache page and clicking on View Larger Map it defaults to the Search Caches map. This map has very powerful search filters but for my purposes I never use it. Is there a way to make the Browse Caches map the default? I tried the search forums tool but it didn't find what I was looking for.
  10. This is one of the weirdest topics I've read in a long time. Have posts been edited? What am I missing? How is that image supposed to help us figure out what cache you might be talking about. What is the location of the cache you found, as in coordinates or a letterbox type description as Keystone requested? And what type of mod approval do you think is required to post a topic in the NW forum? I am really curious about what you want help with.
  11. It now appears to be corrected. Signing out and back in with the new name seems to have fixed it.
  12. That was it! It took less than two minutes to make both changes. I would not have thought about the space because our name always had that space in between the team and sagefox. Things have changed over the 20 years. Thanks, again. You made it easy.
  13. Thanks a bunch. I will try the no space option and the throw out the sos if that doesn't work.
  14. I want to change our account name from Team Sagefox back to the original Sagefox. We own both names so first I tried to change the Sagefox name to Temporary Sagefox and the Sagefox Temporary. That way I could then move to Team Sagefox and change it to Sagefox. But... In trying to change the S name to either of the temporary variations the response is that the name is unavailable. But for what reason? Neither of these names are an account. What can I do next?
  15. Check out Lake Saint Clair in SE Lacey. 14 to 16 paddle caches. One or two of the paddle earth caches require collecting tools needed for the geology experiments so be sure to read those pages. A few of them are challenge caches which you likely qualify for. To find the lake, get on the gc.com cache map and center it on the Nisqually River delta and then scroll straight south. You'll see it.
  16. Sorry for not being more clear. I was referring to posters in this topic, not cache site visitors.
  17. I agree with lee737. A person lost their life here earlier this year and it seems to me that the cache should yield to the memorial. There are plenty of other places for a p&g micro. The callous comments here are making me think that people are not taking a moment to understand the seriousness of what took place and how it has affected so many people in that girl's former life. There is no correlation here to a cemetery cache. This is active grieving. I have been to three or four memorial caches at crash sites over the past 18 years but they were by close friends and meant to be a memorial. This is not that and nor should it be if you don't know the family and especially if it were simply to justify a cache at this location. Why not archive it and place a new cache, or two, somewhere away from here?
  18. It's late and I didn't get all the way through this but I thought I would add that the Washington State governor's order has an allowance for outdoor activity with social distancing. I don't have time to look that up right now but I'm satisfied that geocaching in some areas meets the intent.

    My first thought was to start deleting but then... We have a trackable that went missing in 2015 and two years later it gets a load of Discover logs in Europe. Tons of Discover logs. Turns out that it actually was there. I wrote to some of the discoverers and they said they actually saw it and one even sent a photo. It is still stuck in Europe and I'm trying to get it back to the US to complete its goal but it appears to be the real TB.
  20. I've been led here to report this quirk which I want to do in case HQ coders want to look into it. Situation: During my "29 cache finds on the 29th" run I came to one specific cache, the next one on my route, and each time I clicked on that green treasure chest I would get the usual options page, i.e., the cache name and some street names. In other words, the map wants to know which nearby feature I want to click on. Choosing the cache name and hitting enter shuts off the gpsr. Each time, every time and with two different gpsr units. This does not happen if I click either of the two suggested street names. This was the only cache out of the 29 that this happened for and it still happens today. If I do a search-by-name for this cache it will get me into the cache page but when choosing some cache page options, like viewing logs, the units both shut off. Viewing the cache page description does not seem to shut off the units. I don't know if this is something to do with gc.com or with the Garmin maps. Cache: https://www.geocaching.com/geocache/GC37PHB_view-of-the-mountain Garmin 64s and Garmin 62s Maps: 64s: Garmin City Navigator North America NT 2017.30 62s: Garmin City Navigator North America NT 2018.2
  21. Well... it literally meant the last 50 logs and it can't go back any farther. The only way it can do the hundreds of visits is when there are less than 50 logs subsequent to the visits. I guess I have to keep a closer watch on these "silent" visit logs.
  22. I'm only deleting visit logs and I do that periodically which is usually after the trackable has moved on to a new handler. I haven't had a bogus discover log in years but with that Facebook page I imagine some of mine will get on the lists.
  23. This will be helpful. The last tb I cleaned up had 360 visit logs and that took over an hour.
  24. Is there a way to bulk delete "took-it-to" logs on our owned trackable pages? Over 600 visit logs by one cacher in one month is way over the top. I request that people not visit our trackables and for the most part people don't do that but some don't read the page or don't care what it says. I tried using the search feature for this question but didn't get anywhere with that.
