HI & Thanks for the note.
Yes, I do see that little green note thingy in the display.
My problem is, once I shut down GPXSONAR and load it up again, that little green note has disappeared.
I thought if I marked that I found the cache and then shutdown and turned off the unit until we got to the next cache site, it would save that field note, apparently it doesn't. Or should it?
This is what I do, and I'm not an expert on GPXSonar by any means. From the PDA screen that shows the list of all Caches, e.g., GCXXXX, tap and hold the GCXXXX, and a pop-up menu will appear listing "Show hints, Field Notes, Set as Center, Ignore, Dismiss Menu", I then select "Field Notes", and that in turn brings up another pop-up window that is titled "Field Notes:GCXXX" with several boxes that you can select. The first is the "Found it" drop down menu which if you drop it down also lists "Did not find it, Write a Note, Archive it". Then there is a Timestamp button and below that is a big box that you can input text about the cache, and below that are field for Actual Coordinates and TBs, Delete Note. So if you found the cache, I use the drop down menu and select "Found it", then I input some text about the cache, then I tap the Timestamp. Then I simply tap the "X" in the upper right corner to close the Field Notes dialog box and return to the main screen that lists all of the GCXXXXs. You'll notice a green icon (piece of paper) in the Notes Column (note, nothing will show up in the Found Column until you log the find on geocaching.com and get you next updated gpx file and loand back into your pda) next to the GCXXX number which is the field note you just created. This reminds me, do you see a Notes column when you at the main screen that lists all of the GCXXX caches. My columns from left to right are Type, Waypoint, Travel Bug, Notes, Found, Name, Diff, Terr, Dist, Bearing, Owner, Last Log. If you don't see a Notes and Found column, you may have to check and see if you have GPXSonar to display those columns. Go to LIST, Preferences and make sure you have Note and Found checked as visible columns. The Found column will show a green check mark once you log the find on geocaching.com and update your gpx file. The note column will show a red icon (piece of paper) for a "did not find" and a green icon (piece of paper) for a "Found it".
Hope this helps.
