  1. Same thing, I'd also love to know of a local group. I'm in SE NH. I've been away for 5 or so years, would love to talk with locals about favorite caches. Dang. Thought I had followed up on this sooner. Sadly, the web site faded out. The Granite State Geocachers do live on though. We are on facebook and have a very active crowd on there. http://www.facebook.com/groups/GraniteStateGeocachers/ If you want the BIG area, we also interact with our surrounding state neighbors in New England Geocaching Community: http://www.facebook.com/groups/401127463248952/ Please, don't be shy. Join in!
  2. If you haven't applied it, here it is: http://garminoregon.wikispaces.com/Versions+x50 If you have - it is supposed to fix some map drawing issues. So far, I am seeing it worse than before. Anyone seeing similar results?
  3. Additionally, you have to set that to Spanner in each profile you are likely to use the handheld on external power.
  4. I have the GS II as well and while I do cache with it sometimes, it isn't my primary device. If I do carry a second handheld, it's my Garmin Oregon 450. Yeah, given the accuracy of the phone's GPS, I can see where a better receiver would help with the live searching/caching.
  5. Aside from greater accuracy, not entirely sure what this product's appeal is. I wouldn't want more devices on me if I could avoid it. If I could configure it as my 'black box' to track my kayaking/biking/snowboarding, that would be nice. But then it doesn't report me in unless I connect it to another device with USB or BT. And how many pairings can it use at a given time? Just one?
  6. As I understand it, c:geo no longer does the live mapping either. This info is straight from the app's page on android market. https://market.android.com/details?id=cgeo.geocaching&hl=en
  7. Have the same phone and I am on the hunt for a replacement for GCzII as well. .
  8. Got the same thing happening on my android.
  9. Absolutely! If you haven't found us already, there are a couple. Our facebook group and also the web site with forums.
  10. SuSE user here too! Thanks for this link! Here is some support for it that it needs: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Application:/Geo/openSUSE_12.1/
  11. What a nice logo from just around the corner (although I prefer the 'Fuchs' ;-) After some trials with early Linux in 1992/1993 (that was on a pre 1.0 kernel) i put it aside, but in 1999 i moved completely to openSUSE, and still run it on various laptops, desktops and rootservers. Altough I'm neither a hard tekkie nor a programmer ;-) Since I found the Linux-plugin for garmin and made it running on openSUSE (together with the author) I'm quite happy with the status :-) Another SuSE user here - got a repo for that plugin?
  12. Touch Pro 2 user here too. I wasn't aware that Groundspeak has a version for our phones. I have been using GCzII for about a year now. Recently, the geocaching site made some changes that breaks the app's ability to login. Unfortunately, the dev hasn't updated the app yet and it really kills your ability to go hunting on the fly. I've read a little that if you preload it with PQs for the area you are in, you can still make finds, but the app's ability to do live, location-based queries is gone for now. Hopefully, the app's dev resurfaces and updates it.
  13. Kinda thought that was the case. Log was a notebook and it has years of visits. Hoped that it was live at one point and archived. Kayak trip was great! Got my NV badge and was hoping to make some finds on the AZ side too. Here's the cache. Our guide tells us that the ammo can got swiped and the contents were dumped here. And here is our way back down. A cliff jump into the water. It was pretty sweet.
  14. Around the Laughlin area?? I may have logged it if it was edit to add how about some coords It was just above Willow Beach. A tiny little cubby hole above Emerald Cave. Here's the spot on the kayaking trip we did: http://g.co/maps/vufe4 Coordinates are 35.89181,-114.686752 Wish I could attach the picture.
  15. Hmm. There's an angle I didn't try yet! Worth a shot.
  16. Been searching the forum and found others in my shoes. Little to nothing to go on. I'll keep combing logs and maybe I will get lucky. Thanks, all!
  17. This is what I am trying to do right now too. I found a cache along the Colorado Rver in AZ that I am guessing is archived. I have been looking at nearby finds to see if I can guess who the CO may be or if any locals may have found this unknown one. Not having much luck.
  18. I kayaked down the Colorado River recently and our guide pointed me in the direction of an Arizona cache in Black Canyon called Emerald Cave. It had been muggled and the CO likely archived it, but the cache is still there (minus the ammo can). We found it and signed the log, but can't look it up on the site. Is there any way to search archived caches to find it and contact the CO?
  19. GCzII is now updated and compatible with the Groundspeak site changes! Praise Tom! Download the updated version and never go hungry for caches while you have for phone again.
  20. I am travelling and had horrible performance with 4.47 last night. Was caching during my road trip and the routing was lagging worse and worse until it became unusable while I was driving around in Philly. Got so bad I gave up early and just went back on the highway southbound. Just instlled the new 4.49 and hope this stays solid all day.
  21. D'oh! I rarely use the wireless xfer - just happened to attempt it while out last weekend and it froze around the 25% point and fell back into searching. Looks like it is the beta.
  22. If you mean the HTC Touch Pro2, that is a Windows Mobile 6 based device (not Android), and will NEVER see an official Groundspeak application for it (Windows Mobile is now a defunct mobile platform, replaced by Windows Phone 7) The best app for the Windows Mobile platform is GCzII, which can be used with Pocket Queries (and thus not violating the TOU). Hopefully a third party developer will develop one for Windows Mobile once the API is opened up in the spring. Have a Touch Pro 2 as well and installed GCzII this morning. Liking it so far!
  23. In before someone suggests a restraining order. But seriously.. I do see a lot of over reaction on these forums.
  24. It is a needle stick hazard, that is for sure. Wasn't possible to take two twigs and get a pinch on it.. maybe pull it out and dispose of it properly? Block it off if you couldn't.
  25. Times like these are why I plan on really personalizing the caches I place. They will remember what they found and will laugh if I ever have to ask them to describe it.
