  1. I'll echo the Mama. The Zumo is a great MC nav unit that can offroad/geocache as well.
  2. The Garmin POI Loader is now out of Beta! http://www8.garmin.com/support/download_details.jsp?id=927
  3. How about a digital camera that will tag photos with cords? There are a lot of things I'd like in my electronics, but this would be the best feature to use for geocaching.
  4. Very cool. I shared the site on the Zumo forums. Maybe you will get some more tours loaded up.
  5. Excellent. Thanks for the info, comparison, and the link above as well. I now feel like I have a pretty good handle on what a custom POI is!
  6. I am thinking of ditching my aged eTrex Legend (gray scale) for a new Legend Cx or Vista Cx. My only concern is that these new units only hold 500 waypoints. Is the custom POI loader different than waypoints? Can I load up different POI categories to get more points in? Am I only limited by memory? I haven't used the custom POI loader because it doesn't work with my old unit. Does anyone cache using custom POIs instead of waypoints?
  7. Will the c320 even route you off the road? If you load a GPX file using the PI loader.. will it just take you to the side of the road even if the cache is 500 feet away?
  8. Everyone. All this advertising will hopefully expand the market tremendously. I'd be happy with a 30% market share if that market expands 2X
  9. I have a VX6700 which is the same generation as the tro700 (WM5+bluetooth) I use the cache pages for the info on the cache, but I use an old eTrex Legend to get me there. With the places I have cached - I prefer to leave the delicate electronics put away.
  10. What is the big deal? Just turn off the auto run feature if you are using windows. You can then safely browse a CD. I like the idea of making an off line web page. I'm all for burned CDs pirated or otherwise. If someone turns me one to a band I wouldn't have otherwise considered - I'll but there stuff.
  11. Looks like the wife and I are getting a puppy next weekend. Any tips on Geocache training for your dogs (or any other outdoor logistics for a four legged friend)?
  12. I know you guys get this all the time - so here is another. I have been geocaching for over a year with my trusty eTrex Legend. I also use it on the motorcycle and have been doing more long distant trips with it into the mountains for a weekend. Here is my wanted features in order of importance. I'd like to get something that can auto route on the fly Something small for geostealth in the city sensitive antenna for caching under tree cover. I might want something with a bigger screen size, but don't want a huge unit. Battery life is a concern So I'm thinking of either the eTrex Legend Cx or the GPSMAP 60Cx. Every time I think I know which one I want - I flip flop to the other. Looks like no matter which one I buy - I'll have to get the mapping software for another $120. (unless the City Select that came with my wifes i3 would work)
  13. I also tried to upgrade to TOPO 6.10.2 and still get the same error. I guess I got boned on these CDs
  14. I have tried different computers, installing from a HDD and even making my own CDs. I found out that I do have some maps covering a large checker board for the EAST CD. Funny that the maps that do not work follow this pattern...
  15. I think I remember seeing that announcement (you can even find it using Google). They announced a 2GB miniSD and a 1GB microSD (the ones we are currently buying. I did a double take too. If it turns out I'm wrong (happens a lot - ask my wife), please post a link to the new article.
  16. Well it turns out I didn't get it to work. not really. I can load a few maps from the West and East CD, but the ones around Atlanta (where I live) give me the above error. It had nothing to do with my BAUD rate - I'm also using serial.
  17. Nevermind. I figured it out. I uped my Baud rate to 19200.
  18. I have MapSource v3.02 Topo to use with a Garmin eTrex Legend I can make routes and waypoints and upload them, but I get the following error when I try to send a map. DSK_FIRSTBOOTRECORD.CPP-252-3.02 Anyone seen this error?
  19. Does the Custom POI Loader work with eTrex Legend Cx? I couldn't find that info on Garmin's website.
  20. I found what I was looking for. http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...opic=129820&hl=
  21. Great idea. Too bad POI is only 3 characters.
  22. I guess I'm too slow. the rebate form will not come up.
  23. How do custom POIs work? how are they different from Waypoints? Could I have a 'Ammo' POI, 'Micro' POI, 'Muli' POI, etc?
  24. I currently have a eTrex Legend that I carry about 950 caches on it at any given time. I'm looking to upgrade to a Legend Cx, but am less than impressed with it's 500 waypoint storage capacity. Is there a way to have multiple 500 waypoints 'books' loaded on a MicroSD card? It wouldn't be so bad if I had to load an unload waypoints from a mSD card. If that were the case I could have >1000 points available without connecting to a PC. Have you gotten around this? Do you carry more than a 500 cache points with you?
  25. TomTom Rider is expensive. Does he need to answer a bluetooth phone on the bike? I suggest not. The Lawrence iWay 500 is about 25% of the price and just as good. There is also a new MC skin http://www.bigbikeriders.com/forums/viewto...p?p=16719#16719 BTW: I use neither on my bikes
