  1. Cheers for that Stuey.. I gave up on mine trying to load all the GPX files up (I have about 30 of them) something that condenses it for ppc will be great Cheers
  2. Mmm I tried Cachemate (which I bought) with a 20K+ file and it took forever to load.. Was I doing something wrong?
  3. I have not really pushed the Oregon to see how many it can take.. It seems to baulk some way between 1000-1500 which will be the same for the Collorado I guess.. If it had the ability to choose which file you wanted to load there whould be no problem.. Today I did one cache nearly 100 miles from home.. As I knew where I was going I loaded the file.. .. I always have the Mio as backup I suppose.
  4. Well folks I'll add my 2p. I think the "Girly" thought is that the Oregon has no Buttons, wheels or a big pointy out ariel thingy.. maybe the orange ad literature adds to this.. Anyway after consideration (And having run PDA with full MMap for the last year after smashing Legend) I'm now running a Oregon 400.. After initially having to callibrate the screen and get used to the device I can say I am more than happy with the GPS.. The touch screen seems robust and the device in general seems well made. The Oregon has a different receiver to the Collorado so I cannot compare the units untill Robin (HarrogateHunters) and I give them a trip to compare them.. But my 400 is showing full coverage indoors! Mapping is fast and the screen responsive and very intuitive from a cachers point of view. The downsides for me would be the same for all of the units mentioned. I run Memmory Map on my PDA with Lordelphs Icons all 10,000 unfound caches in my PQ list. I can do without MM and the Icons but the 1000 limit on stored caches is a real pain and would be the same with a Collorado or a CS.. The units can accept GPX files which is great so if you had the option to choose which file you loaded (As I do with Sonar on the PDA).. This is my only real problem with it.. I'm Happy anyway as I can cache again in the rain..
  5. We've moved the Wye Valley & Forest of Dean Event back a week as the Mega event would have clashed. It's about 35 miles north of Weston. Should be 15th August 2009 if all goes as planned. Camping all weekend. Looks like a good site from this years stats.. We dont mind either side of WSM date wise. Used to live near Wotton-Under-Edge so know the SW pretty well. Looking forward to it all How could I forget Don't push me over the edge!!! with 6 finds and 25 DNFs owned up to. Oh Dear I have been caught out Yes it was a little evil..
  6. Quick question.. The Original post said you uploaded 3 GPX files to the device.. Where they 500 each or a total of 500? It would seem you are able to overload the device as you where with tho old Legend. However I don't know whether it will take 1500 WP's.. They don't like 10000 lol

  8. Maybe Piratemania Cotswolds or Stonehenge the weekend before. Nudge nudge.. Well a camping event the previous weekend obviously helps the cachers from further reaches of the UK.. Are there any other West country camping events that normally run around that time?
  9. I have used a Mio 201 for about 3 years now and it does all my needs.. I see there are varients of the previous model 168 at well under £50 and they have gps built in.. On a different subject.. Pendle Witch I did some new caches (Simons seat) on saturday and was sure the footsteps in the frost beating me to the FTF where yours.. For once I was wrong
  10. Well we loved the low level loop of caches.. Lovely stroll with the Phillies and others. Sir Chester seemed to like the pub we had lunch at.. I think Cats eyes have addopted the whole series.. Roll on Pirate Mania 2009!!
  11. Well done .. good article.. Now I can put a face to the cache owner when I'm doing your caches
  12. Many thanks for your post MissJenn.. Much appreciated.. S.
  13. Sorry we could not make it down there for the camping Sue.. (550 round trip) Hope you all had a ripping time. ROLL ON 2009 CAMPING... Wurzles ready
  14. Ay I'm trying to get them golf balls into micro's..Got to get me a bigger hammer.. Seems like a good sig line to me if you don't mind
  15. Welcome Some more of the local area cachers will be around soon to greet you I'm sure.. You should have loads of caches in hte area to keep you occupied for a while anyway. Cheers
  16. Well done Steve... This caching lark must be addictive then?
  17. Yes much respect and thanks. Sorry it did not work out. S
  18. Well I would guess that M1EYO would probably be the Highest Uk cacher.. As for Globaly I would guess on Lyn Of CCCooper Agency.. I cached with her for a day this summer.. Lovely lady.. http://www.geocaching.com/profile/?guid=76...22-70ccf5276e0e
  19. Last week I was doing a job for the Forestry Commission Nursery at Wykeham Nursery near Scarborough. Chatting to the blokes in the office I sat a Garmin CS on the dest. I mentioned I had a Legend (before we broke it) and they bromptly gave me another differently broken Legend ;*) so I may have a working "Blue Brick" again! Anyway they use it to measure the distance on lines of the baby trees they grow so they can work out how many they are producing for stock. The Wykeham nursery produces 9.000.000 trees each year for the Forestry Commission.

  21. Go for it.. Camping events are great We would be up for the event if it was not 180 miles each way.. You will have a great time The 2 organisers seem ok too Take your woolies and make sure you take your sense of humor as well, I am sure it will be a blast
  22. I guess rule 5 may have worked. I wonder how many within the M25 went without Well done to the winners.. The coins where free as where the prizes. In fact a good heads up to Garmin.. Well done and thanks from the UK Caching community.
  23. Superb news.. Many thanks for all the behind the scenes work that has obviously gone on here.. Cheers
  24. Thanks for that... Reading back (which I should have done first) I see the problems.. DOH Homer Thanks anyway
