  1. I got some Gpolyline (Google Maps) code from a web site that has some ATV trails for a specific area. I am trying to take the points that are in Lat and Long and get them in my GPS.


    I see alot of methods for going the opposite way, just not what i want as written above.


    Link to URL where i am pulling the code is:


    Oconto County ATV Trails


    Example of code is:


    // Begin Trail Route Pestigo Brook Fire Lane South to Old 64

    var polyline = new GPolyline([

    new GLatLng(45.1723, -88.2149),

    new GLatLng(45.1707, -88.2181),

    new GLatLng(45.1705, -88.2183),

    new GLatLng(45.1700, -88.2199),

    new GLatLng(45.1699, -88.2203),

    new GLatLng(45.1686, -88.2209),

    new GLatLng(45.1670, -88.2212),

    new GLatLng(45.1666, -88.2218),

    new GLatLng(45.1660, -88.2235),

    new GLatLng(45.1648, -88.2239),

    new GLatLng(45.1631, -88.2252),

    new GLatLng(45.1594, -88.2272),

    new GLatLng(45.1575, -88.2286),

    new GLatLng(45.1566, -88.2295),

    new GLatLng(45.1519, -88.2369),

    new GLatLng(45.1500, -88.2396),

    new GLatLng(45.1367, -88.2507)

    ], "#FF0000", 5);


    //End Trail




  2. I am thinking of tring to establish a series of Pocket Queries too submit a list of all the GC's in Wisconsin. Mainly because I am starting to travel more around the state and it would be nice to have the entire state list in my 60cx as POI's


    Im sure I could setup a mutitude of Queries based on zip code but I'm afraid that I will get too much overlap or miss a large section.


    Any ideas?


    Thank you



  3. I just aquired an 60cx and I have an unopened City Navigator V8 sitting here that i am wondering if i should trade for the NT version. I understand the map compression difference, my main question is the map refreshing rate. It said in the FAQ that a more compressed map takes more CPU power and i am curious if anyone out there has seen or noticed a difference. The wording makes me believe that the non NT version would refresh and scroll faster in 60cx.


    I dont care about file size so much im not going to put the whole county in it. Just the midwest area.


    Thank you!!



  4. We, too, took the plunge to a 60Cx. Does anyone know what happened to the GPS screen protector guys that used to have an ad on the Geocaching web site? Or who they were? Or if any of the other protectors that come multi in a pad are any good. The protector we have on the 60C is great and they make good gifts at the Christmas events. Just need to find those guys :(

    They're having a sale. I have no connection with them other than being a satisfied customer.


    I have used the clear table cloth plastic material you can buy for little money at a fabric store, I cut to the shape of whatever i am covering then dampen and position, works well!!

  5. Just curious what happens to the status of a benchmark that is in the "missing" status on this site that has been found, even the NGS Description has it as found (1994). But prior to the latest NGS find the marks was "not found" (1974, 1976 and 1985) and , maybe thats why Groudspeak has the skull and crossbones on it.


    Here is a link to the latest 2 finds that have this designation:


    PN0027 and PN0025


    Will this site now change the status of these benchmarks?


    Thanks Kris


    Get out There!!!!!

  6. I have always used Microsoft Word. It has a great insert utility for pictures and text boxes. You can draw arrows and alot of things to your pic.


    Then all I do is copy paste the complete image into paint and save as a *.jpg. Works Great!!


    Get out There!!!!!

  7. This is an interesting topic that has made a great point, to respect what we find. I think I speak for all that we are not here to destoy but to enjoy. Half the fun is getting to the mark and enjoying the wilderness. I am a rookie at this and I am just begining to see the enjoyment. Makes me want to work for NOAA!!! (Any openings) icon_smile.gif I want to contrubute to the recovery, there are alot to find!!


    Get out There!!!!!
