  1. Hi, I have a Garmin 60CS and I was wondering if there was any way to remove waypoints en masse from my GPS via ExpertGPS or MapSource.


    I have filled my GPS to it's capacity and I don't want to delete them one at a time. I also don't want to remove the maps in it's memory.


    I searched through Garmins and this site but I couldn't find anything....




    In 1987, when I worked with sexual abuse and incest survivors the rate of sexual abuse was three out of five females and two out of five males. Those are staggering statistics particularly given the fact that those were reported abuse cases.


    Those statistics can't be right.


    You were talking about the general population right?

  3. It's Farsi for "One who can find much cache".


    Not buying it?  Here's the real answer from Stayfloopy himself.

    Im let down now, thats a sucky explanation!

    I want StayFloopy to think up a better explanation than that!


    How about a Contest!


    Make up a meaning for the term StayFloopy!

    Huh. I somehow came to think he had an unruly dog named Floopy.

    HA! I beat StayFloopy to the first leg of a virgin cache.


    He then proceeded to beat me to the second and third leg. I swear that man has radar like a bat. I was always running after him too even though he was just walking quickly. ;)

  4. I had an interesting experiance in finding a freshly killed moose about 20 feet from a cache that had obviously been illegaly shot and only the best of the meat + head taken. A feeding eagle tipped me to the finding. Another strange twist was a personal item reght next to the remains. I left the item next to the moose and called the local F&W Warden, giving him the area and the exact GPS location plus datum. The Warden was able to go directly to the site, retrieve and identify the item, which belonged to a known violator. He got a search warrant and went to the man's home. The person was in the process of preparing some choice moose meat for lunch as he entered the home. Needless to say, both the Warden and this :blink: geocacher was excited to have been a part of getting the goods on this poacher. :lol:

    What was the personal item? A wallet?

  5. Ok, I was hoping to enter the 21st century and become a wireless geocacher. I was looking to get a phone that would sync with a pda and a wireless earpiece.


    Unfortunately, I have Verizon as my cell phone service.


    I really don't have a problem with them as their service is usually very good. Except for the fact that I get disconnects in my house but that is another problem entirely.


    I looked at hybrid pda/phones but they are too clunky and and I find the screen too small.


    So I look at a phone called the Motorola 710 it has lots of cool features but it seems Verizon has crippled the Bluetooth so it won't communicate with your handheld, pda, car (BLUETOOTH CARS??!!) but will only sync with a wireless earpiece.


    So, have any of you solved your wireless dilemma? Got any reccomendations so I can roam the country; downloading caches at will and submitting my cache logs from afield?? B)



  6. Cool!


    I really want a kayak now so I can go get some of these water caches I keep reading about. I've always wanted to try kayaking since I went white water rafting and our guide was on a kayak. It looked like fun.


    I'll get around to it someday.

  7. If you decide on a Vista I wouldn't worry so much about the backlight or compass draining the battery. I always left my compass on and would get 6 - 10 hours out of my rechargable batteries. Unless you decide you REALLY like caching it probably won't be an issue.


    As for memory - waypoints don't take up much space it's the add on maps such as MapSource for the Garmin brand that eat up memory. If you're going to use Maps I would go with the Vista - or something with a comparable amount of memory. I only have half of New Jersey on my 60CS and it's taking up about 30 megs of memory.

  8. I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this. When using the mouse wheel to zoom in and out of the map - it doesn't show up at every other zoom. I have contacted Dan about this and have recent versions. I just downloaded the beta and I still get the same error! :)
