  1. The one for 1,000 should be available to download here: It is available for you if the number in parenthesis is anything greater than "0". If you can see the results, you are looking at the preview. Did you select day-of-the-week to run? If not, it will not run, but the preview will be shown nonetheless. They don't show up there at all! IDK why...
  2. I don't see where I can download them straight from the site. I had one for 500 and one for 1000. I see that they have ran, can see the results, but not where to download them. Thanks
  3. I have tried a couple different PQ today and even tried a different email address. I am not getting the files in my email. Is there an issue with the site today? Was hoping to go out, but may not happen now.
  4. And I apologize to everyone, as the forum was not sending me notifications like it should have!
  5. I think we used it about 5-6 times. I will take $60 for it, including shipping in the continental US. It does not have the cable, but it is a standard USB cable. Do you still have it? Yes I do!

  7. I have one available if you are still looking
  8. I have a Magellan Explorist GC available if you are still in the market
  9. I have the Magellan eXplorist GC for sale. Only used a handful of times and is in great condition. The cable that came with it no longer works, but it works with a standard USB cable. Open to offers. Thanks!
  10. Y'know, those lamp post skirts....nah, you'll figure it out....😏 LOL! I remember back in January we hit one out in the woods and there was this tiny micro magnetized on a sign, where there are basically all dirt roads. Of course we didn't notice it right away and looked all around it and nearly gave up. It was so small, that you could pretty much swallow it.
  11. Go for the bigger ones and the ones with the lowest difficulty rating. I usually search for ones that have only been found in the last month or so, for now, until I get used to finding them easier if they are out of place, and to build confidence.
  12. Press any dashboard item you want to change, and select from the list that pops up. The Garmin Oregon Wiki helps a lot. SWEET!!! Thank you!!!
  13. Thanks. My husband and I go out together. Sometimes my son goes too.
  14. Use the Geocaching Profile, and when you're walking and less than 528 feet from the cache, use the Compass screen (with whatever dashboard items you like, they're selectable). I use Distance to cache, Current Lat/Lon, the point I'm navigating to (the current cache or waypoint), and time. Check out some maps, see if you recognize some old caches you found. You can log them! Thanks! How do you change the dashboard items? I've been playing with it and found a thread on here that talks about custom recommended settings, but I could not figure out how to tweak some of the things. I wish I remembered the ones we had done. I know there were a few in MO, but that was about 2 years ago actually.... I know there are some here in NC too, but IDK. I need to look at them when I have a few minutes to spare. Oh and believe it or not, all the caches we have found in the past month are micro or smalls. We seem to be ok with them, for some reason...
  15. The first two that we could not find were micros in a densely tree lined side of the road. The second one was supposed to be a pill bottle, but it sounds like its a difficult find, according to logs. I do tend to look for things that are slightly out of place and good hiding places. The Oregon has a learning curve too. I am still working on figuring it out! I guess it just takes time. We geocache for date days. My son occasionally likes to go too. We have found more than what our stats say. I just realized today that I actually need to compose them on the site before things get published. I'm so bummed, bc we lost logs from MO and the early years of NC. Oh well.
  16. We took our brand new Oregon 450 out today, attempted 6, found 3. Is this a normal success rate? Also, is it normal for GPS's to not be entirely accurate? One that we found, we found it about 50 feet from where it said it would be. I only got it bc of the title suggesting its location. Another one we found today said it was about 15 feet from where we found it. I just don't know if this is normal or not. We upgraded partially bc the accuracy rate on the Magellan Explorist GC is not that great, or at least what we felt was horrible, and it would jump around like crazy. The Oregon is a little better, granted not a ton better. We have been Geocaching every 1-2 months for the past year + and never really seemed to find them all when we go out. Thanks!
  17. Everything you need to know about maps for your Garmin GPSr, and where to get them can be found right here. I was referring to a mention of free maps. Just don't know if they work or not.
  18. I will be selling my Magellan Explorist GC as soon as we get our new one in a couple weeks. We are waiting on our tax refund that seems like it is never coming. PM me if you are interested!
  19. I am looking at buying the Garmin Oregon 450 or another Garmin model. I am sorry if this seems like a stupid question, but I saw a reference somewhere about free maps you can download to the Garmin GPS. Can I get free maps that include roads, to say give me actual driving directions to the cache, or at least close enough so we can walk in? Or to do that, would I need to break the bank and buy their additional maps? We are military, and move every 2 years, so if I get a local map now, then I am going to have to buy another next year, etc. Thanks!
  20. Thank you!!! We will definitely go Garmin then! We have the Magellan Explorist GC currently. We got it a couple years ago and it is slipping big time. It is time for a nice upgrade!
  21. We need a new GPS for geocaching, but my husband wants to see if there is one that will do coordinates, or even military coordinates that he can use when he goes out in the field. Any idea? Thanks!
