  1. Time to upgrade? Oh I hope not! I love this unit. And it was given to me by a member here a few years ago. It's all I know! Lol. It's been through so much.
  2. Thanks. Will try that. I never updated the firmware on this thing.
  3. No, I noticed that the wrong one is selected since the reset. It won't boot again.
  4. Also, the freshly charged batteries just dropped by half power in 10 minues in my GPS. Ahhhh. What's going on.
  5. Ok, I might be an idiot. But during the testing my GPS stated low battery. Would a low battery cause the unit to lock up? I put in freshly charged ones and it rebooted ok. It seems that only fully recharged batteries are allowing it to get past load maps screen. My batteries are all rechargable. Could this be an issue?
  6. I have left gift cards as the FTF in my difficult hiking caches. Generally, I don't take prizes or trinkets. Unless it's money. Always like that.
  7. Trying this now. My software version is 3.40 and GPS versiom 290. Is that old?
  8. I just started having issues with my Colorado 400t. It worked great for the past two years. Now it's locking up. I did plug it into my PC to load caches when the PC said it didn't recognize the Garmin and since then it's not been able to get past the loading maps screen. Twice I got it to.
  9. I've this GPS for about as long as I've been geocaching. It used to work perfectly. I haven't been caching for a while and I finally renewed my membership and fired up the Garmin to load caches. It's stuck on the loading maps screen. I've searched and tried the three button reset which did clear user data. It worked twice, long enough to load some caches, find one and that's it. I pull the batteries, reinsert and it locks up either on the loading maps screen or the do you want to delete user data screen if I leave it alone there. Any tips? I'm so bummed. I love this GPS.
  10. Thanks so much! I loved this feature on my Android and didn't know it was availble on the BlackBerry!
  11. Yes, if I get a bunch of cache logs on a day and I cent read them, I'll let them sit in my inbox unopened. Sometimes I'll go back and read them. Most times, when I can, I'll log online and read all the caches that were recently found. I know we have to, but I would really rather not get an email for every cache found. It's overwhelming to me at times. I love long logs and I get quite a few on my caches which I appreciate. But I prefer to choose when to read them.
  12. I like micros though. I don't like nanos. I gave them an honest try. I hated every single one! So I would filter nanos, and not micros. If you.can't see that there's a difference between a pill bottle and your pinkey fingernail in size, you need glasses. Lol. There's a difference.
  13. I wish I had time to read every cache log that came in. But I don't. Sometimes, at the end of a week or two, I'll sign on and read all the logs posted. But by then any maintenance that needs to have been done may be too long overdue. That's just a different style of play though. I don't cache everyday nor do I want to have to be involved everyday. For me, it's a hobby. So I don't check up on caches of mine, or others, every day. I can go 2 or more weeks without signing in, or without reading logs. So I really do need the NM logs. If they didn't have those, I wouldst hide any caches because I wouldn't be able to properly maintain them. So, I log in when I can, scan for the NM icons next to my caches, and deal with them. Seems the best way for those of us that don't cache every day.
  14. A micro isn't the same size as a.nano. just like a regular isn't the same as a small. I like micros. I don't like nanos at all. I'd like to filter them out.
  15. I would like to see a nano size added to make filtering caches easier and more precise.
  16. My caches are muggle free and mostly ammo cans. However, somesome aren't and I don't read every email as it comes in. Sometimes, I skim over the email and forget what it says. I definitely need the NM log as a reminder. Even good containers get damaged , and in Florida I have even seen water in ammo cans!
