  1. I picked up a California Geocoin today (in New York State).


    It has a 4 digit tracking number that is not recognised by Geocaching.com.


    The tag says to log at www.calif.geocoin.net but that seems a totally unrelated site.


    Owners name is only partially legible "Squ......"


    I'm sure someone would love to get this back in the system, and I'd love to help.


    Any clues out there?

  2. 14U E 417741 N 5632868 converts to N50 50.500 E100 10.100 or use your GPSr


    I would still like to know how to convert British Grid to Lat Long/UTM as your original question posed.


    (PS on an entirely unrelated matter, I have just realised I still need to book my internal flights!! do you have any suggestions for the best company to fly with from Van to Edmonton and then from Edmonton onto Calgary?)


    Yup, Look no further than Westjet for your internal flights. They will look after you.

    Have a great vacation.

  4. I'm about to purchase a 76cx from GPSCity in Calgary, but thought I should see if anyone is looking to sell one here. I know there is a Garage Sale Forum, but most folks there don't want the trouble of shipping to Canada.

  5. We are coming from the UK to ski in Tremblant in a few days. When I finished looking at the UK forum this evening I just took a quick look here and saw this thread.


    Before I try again, can you advise me if Tremblant (Quebec) is covered please?


    Rgds, Andy


    Just checked my version Ibycus 1.2 in Mapsource and Tremblant is there with all the ski runs shown.

    Have fun on your trip.

  6. Gananoque is definitely Kingston area. Garage sale is most frequent forum for me, waiting for a 76cx cheap, now that the Colorado is on everyone elses wish list. Also get some good giggles from the Canadian Geo Pub Quiz, and learn a thing or two in the process.

  7. [quote (BTW - should we be able to send waypoints straight from geocaching.com to the GPSr)


    Yes you can. Attach the USB cable that came with your unit and from the cache page hit the "Send to GPS" button, top left under the coordinates


    I'd suggest getting all caches on your gps then send them to mapsource.

    Alternately you could just "cut" the waypoint from each map and "paste" onto one map, a little tedious tho.

  8. The specs for these two garmin models are almost identical. (76cx has 128 card 60cx has 64 card),

    Yet the 60cx seems far more popular with cachers.

    Before I upgrade from gpsmap76 to 76cx, I was curious to know if there is something I'm missing about the 60cx?

    Thanks in advance for your comments
