  1. Well here we are a couple of weeks later. I purchased, installed, and charged the new battery. Unfortunately, the Nuvi remains as dead as a doornail.
  2. You can buy replacement batteries at many online sources in the $10 to $20 range. Some of them include a tool kit with the small torx screw driver and pry tools needed to open the case. It is a relatively easy procedure to replace the battery. Thanks alandb. That sounds like the solution I'm looking for.
  3. Hi, I've been geocaching for a donkey's years and used to hang around these boards, but like I said, it's been a long time. My personal preference in regard to caching technique has been to download caches to both my Nuvi 1450 for navigating to the general area and to an Oregon 450 for the off-road portion of the search. A few weeks ago we went on a road trip, and the Nuvi lasted about 15 minutes, then shut down. I tried everything to resuscitate it, but it simply would not power up at all. A call to Garmin was fruitless. They simply said "we no longer support that model" So I'm looking for a new auto-routing GPS that easily downloads GPX files. Preferably not Garmin, since their service policy sucks. Suggestions?
  4. For many years, I have kept a database of caches I have visited. Amongst other things, every day I need to enter the last-found date for a given number of caches. Yes, this is a mindless waste of time, but at least it's pretty much a mechanical thing, and I don't have to think about what I'm doing. Until now! No way do I want or should I have to sit down and mentally calculate a date based on how many days ago it was from today. Why was this deemed necessary?
  5. I am looking for a cache that I visited in the past, only I don't remember which cache it was. However if there was a way to do a word search on all my logs I could find it, since I do remember a particular word I used in the log. Is there any way to perform a search on all my logs?
  6. Yes, I use that one. Except today I attempted to translate an archived cache, and got the message "You are not logged in" When I logged in, and re-attempted the translation, I got the same message. I tried refreshing the page. Nothing works. How do I get past the login request?
  7. This bug Bob has its most recent log dated 11/20/08, and it is placed above logs from 2009. How is this possible? I thought all logs are automatically sorted by date.
  8. Google Earth will only permit a route with a start and end point. No stops in between. Using Google Maps, you can create a route with multiple stops. However, I am not sure how to generate the KML file needed for finding caches. At this site you can generate a KML which will open in Google Earth, but again, I cannot see how to import it to geocaching.com for finding caches. Am I missing the obvious, or is it just not possible?
  9. Just to reiterate 1) My route PQ follows the roads 2) I successfully created several PQs but they were yielding too many results. 3) When I edit them, I get an error message 4) When I attempt to delete them I get an error message Only by archiving them and creating a new PQ can I get anywhere.
  10. Well I tried two bison's suggestion, but it didn't work. Still unable to edit or delete Route PQ's. Still looking for answers...
  11. I created a PQ last week and ran it on Wednesday. It generated too many caches for my requirements, so I reduced the search distance to 0.1 mi, narrowed the cache type to Traditional, and Terrain/Difficulty to <=1.5, rescheduled to today (Monday). I clicked on Submit Information and received the following "Your request has resulted in an error. You may choose to retry your previous request. Or you may tell us what you were doing when this error occurred." I submitted a reply (but have not received an answer) I then decided to delete the original PQ and restart from scratch. From the My Pocket Queries list, I selected the PQ in question, and clicked on 'Delete this query' Once again, I receive the same error message "Your request has resulted in an error. You may choose to retry your previous request. Or you may tell us what you were doing when this error occurred." What do I do now?
  12. Maybe I solved it already. Is there a problem with symbols in cache names? I found one such cache and renamed it in GSAK, and the file uploaded with no problem. Thus ending 2 hours of hair-pulling frustration!!

    SO SORRY!

    Some kind of a glitch occurred
  14. I frequently have to run the process several times to upload a file to my nuvi 750 The error message I get is as follows: "The file C:\Program Files\Garmin/Geocache TourGuide.gpx is invalid. Do you want to want to continue?" (sic) Pressing YES or NO in each case terminates the process. The files are in the specified folder but do not upload to the device. In the past it has worked after several attempts. As of today, no matter how many tries, it is simply not working at all.
  15. The problem is specifically related to the GSAK nuvi macro by pilotsnipes, so I have moved my query to that forum. Thanks!
  16. Sorry, misposted - redirecting to more appropriate forum
