  1. Yes you can, these are (from gsak point of view) the same as an Oregon 400
  2. Dat is prima mogelijk. In principe zou je vrijwel alles aan een (geadopteerde) cache kunnen veranderen. Als de 'beleving' van de cache anders wordt (bv andere plaats, opeens een klimcache, etc), dan wordt geadviseerd om een nieuwe cache te maken.
  3. That is because your old Rhino did not have the concept of geocaches. It only saved waypoints, and a waypoint can have a different picture attached to it. What you want is not directly possible on a standalone GPS. To mark your own caches, you have to save them as waypoints or as POI's on your GPS. However, you will then loose the extra info that is attached to a geocache (text, hints, extra waypoints) When you add a seperate waypoint on the GPS it is just that: a waypoint. It can have a seperate icon and a small description, but is is in no way a geocache.
  4. What editor are you using to look at the geocache_visits.txt ? The 'problem' is that the file is in double-byte format; which means that every ascii-code is followed by a x0 character. (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DBCS ) So e.g. GC1234 is coded in the file as: 47 00 43 00 31 00 32 00 33 00 34 00 It looks like your editor/viewer thinks the x00 character is the end of text so only shows the first character. Solution: use another editor to look at the file; or just upload it to geocaching.com/drafts
  5. You can make the question/answer under water and give a permission zone on the surface. There are a lot of questions that can be asked underwater
  6. I am afraid the 'themes' are just 'attributes' Looking in the builder for ad-labs, you just select them like an 'attribute' on a normal geocache. No fancy theming with different backgrounds, fonttypes, images,... (Real theming would be difficult when you are allowed to select multiple themes, whichbackground/color/font would take precedence)
  7. De enige manier om ze nogmaals te doen is door een nieuw account aan te maken.
  8. So basically you added 'attributes' to the adventure lab, but you called them 'theme's ?
  9. Open de app on your phone Browse the map until you see the AL you want to do Click on the AL to open it.
  10. Yes, but it is very cumbersome. Load the app (at home) and select the AL you want to do. It will download the texts and waypoints. Then you can go to the wps and see the questions. You can not answer them in the field, but the app will remember that you visited the location. So go to a place with wifi to get a data connection, and there you can 'visit' the wps again and answer the questions. This is of course a giant pain in the behind when you have a sequential AL, because you only get the next wp after you give the answer; so that means a lot of travel between the wifi and the wps.
  11. Dat kun je helaas niet instellen. Wat je wel kunt doen is de map-pagina openen en de filters zo instellen als je wil. Maak daarna een snelkoppeling/bookmark van de pagina. Als je dan deze bookmark opent, zullen de instellingen juist staan.
  12. What you want is not (currently) possible. GPS location is a one way street. The GPS satelites only send a signal, they do not receive any. (Not really true, because the sateliets get information from the groundstations to correct their trajectory and clock) Also sending information to a satelite requires a relatively large antenna, and a lot of power. Another point is that you want to request a location; therefore the device has to listen on some frequency (bluetooth, GSM, satelite) to receive the request, and therefore needs power.
  13. Jouw vraag gaat niet over kaarten; dus e had beter een nieuw topic kunnen openen. Het probleem is waarschijnlijk dat je de GPX bestanden niet in de map \Garmin\GPX\ op je SD-kaart zet.
  14. Even een uitleg: Omdat een gif-animatie niet meer standaard geupload kan worden op de cachepagina (dan wordt het omgezet naar een jpeg) is het plaatje hier geplaatst. Vervolgens kan dan op de cachepagina verwezen worden naar dit plaatje, zodat er een geanimeerd plaatje op de cachepagina staat.
  15. And another hickup of the website. Error 500 when trying to log in, and no avatar pictures in the forum.
  16. The GPS45 is a very old GPS (25 years!), and has a problem with the week rollover from the GPS system. See an explanation of garmin: https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=zWQY6Z2kFiAuY9kDnDBgZ6 I don't think there is a firmware update for it to correct the EOW so you will have a wrong date 'forever' On https://www.javawa.nl/rollover.html there is a link to a program to update the almanac of the GPS with https://www.javawa.nl/downloads/garmin/GpsEow_V1.20_PC_Software.zip it does not say wheter it does work with the GPS45, but you can try.
  17. In bijna alle gevallen komt dit omdat je ook gebruik maakt van g:ceo. Die zet elke keer de taal op engels.
  18. You could try a phoneshop; they are often used to solder small components, so they might be able to repair your GPS.
  19. Maps are not loaded dynamically on a GPS. You have to preload them yourself. There are a lot of openstreetmaps (OSM) available for free for the entire planet. And with an SD card in your GPS you have enough space to load the whole of the US (about 10Gb) in your GPS.
  20. No, there is only a 'save' command. No way to save under another name. You could make some variables that remember the state at some point and save them too. Then you could reload in your cartridge the stage-variables back into the 'running'variables...
  21. That is how is designed: The settings in de messagecenter gives you an email for every message you send. In your geocaching-settings ( https://www.geocaching.com/account/settings/emailpreferences ) there is a setting to send you an email when someone else sends you a message
  22. You have to 'goto' the cache, so it is selected as your destination.When slected you will get a screen in 'geocaching'with the options for description, logs, new coordinates and the hint.
  23. You can upload the picture to your cache. Then create/remember the link to your picture and then delete the picture from your cachepage. The picture will still be there, and you can use the link to show the picture. It will not show up in the gallery. Since there are a LOT of caches where the pictures have been removed from the gallery, they can not delete these pictures without messing up a lot of caches.
