  1. I wonder if the seller has been geocaching? Might not be so quick to sell if they had.... Nick

  4. What about missing "hidden" caches? I seem to be missing 9 hidden caches... Cheers Nick.
  5. Thought it might to time to bump this message up.
  6. I am pretty familiar with geocaches in the South Island of New Zealand, and I can't say that I have seen any cat themed caches down here (though having 2 cat's myself, along with plenty of cat toys, it sounds like a good potential cache idea) Hopefully someone from the North Island can give you some good news. Cheers Nick.

  8. I just did this cycling cache (Tour de New Brighton) It is about 12 miles, and I did it no problem, and I am not the fittest of guys. Cheers Nick.

    Error#18 ?

    I received this message when logging a cache - time for a bigger hard drive ? Nick.

  13. I just noticed that you have your new GPSr in the photo, must be a quite recent pic

  15. Very cool - it is a pity there was no mention of geocaching.com so people would know where to go to get more information. Good on you for getting it into the paper. Cheers Nick.

  17. Well after having a play with both NZMapped and TopoMapPro (thanks tgsnoopy and brentc) I have decided to keep saving for TopoMapPro. The main reason for this is two fold: 1) I am running on a Mac, and as the software is PC only, the performance of TopoMapPro was much better under VirtualPC than NZMapped (though both communicated with the GPS connected via a keyspan USB-Serial adapter with no problem) 2) TopoMapPro uses JPG images to build it's maps, this will allow me to write some software to replicate the TopoMapPro functionality, but running native under MacOSX (this probably violates the licencing for TopoMapPro, but as it will be for private use, hopefully they won't mind) (thanks to swanny for pointing that out, and how the jpg filename and folders relate to the co-ords) This also means that I will be able to implement the functionaly I want (now where was that Garmin interface specifications I downloaded...) Thanks to everyone who has expressed their opinions on these two pieces of software. Cheers Nick.

  19. quote:Originally posted by BaldEd: I don't understand the comment that someone made about not being able to upload tracklogs. I do that all the time with my data cable! I have been playing with tgsnoopys copy of NZMapped that he has let me borrow. I have not found how to do this - from what I have seen NZMapped refers to getting data from the GPS as uploading, while putting data onto the GPS as downloading (I would have though this should be the other was round...) - so in NZMapped terms, can you draw a track onto the map and then download this to the GPS? Cheers Nick.

  21. I am planning on changing from TUMONZ and was wondering if anyone used both TopoMapPro and NZMapped and can comment as to whether the extra money for TopoMapPro is worth it? Fom the respective websites I can't see a lot of difference (except TopoMapPro has a more normal looking interface ) - can NZMapped import a list of waypoints in WGS84 format (the website says Northing and Easting, implying NZGD49, is this the case?) By the looks of it, neither will let you upload tracklogs which is a pity. I have seen TopoMapPro running on a laptop being used for moving map display - has anyone done this with NZMapped and can comment? The final question is about zoom - TopoMapPro has all the different maps scanned 1:50000 1:250000 etc I can't tell if this is the case with NZMapped - can you zoom out (eg to see a map of NZ like on Buxley’s geocaching page?) Cheers Nick.

We will extend GPX to provide additional Geocaching details (decoded hints and such). Do you have any idea how far away the GPX option will be? (Not that there are any unvisited caches close to home, but I am keen on writing a OSX->Palm Memo software for when some are placed ) Cheers Nick.

  25. Now I want one of these GPSr units. Maps that you can download that are not in a propriety format... yummy Nick
