  1. I agree with Team Neos. You should e-mail the owner or someone who was there recently. If you went at a "questionable" time (late at night, holiday, etc.) you should go there during sometime that isn't "questionable".

  2. As said many, many times before, congrats! (I don't know if I should be saying this because I'm a noobie myself!)


    Don't even get me started on that Virginia letter Santa thingy. My teacher gave a lecture on that in 5th grade that literally took up a whole hour. Then we had to do a big project on it!

  3. I have the Magellan eXplorist 200. I think they will have the same way of doing this, so here goes. You do not need to have a position fix to mark them. Go to the map screen. Move the arrow buttons in any direction until it says "Cursor" at the bottom. Push "Mark". It doesn't matter where the cursor is. When it gives you the screen to edit the settings of it, set the name, the description (if you want it) and you can change the lat. and long. there also. Highlight the area where the lat. and long. are listed, then press enter. Now you can edit the lat. and long. Edit it, then hit save. Then press Go to. Find that POI on your list, then hit enter. You now have the straight path to the cache (or whatever it was you marked:)). Good luck!

  4. It doesn't matter when you're entering coordinates whether or not it has a fix. Obviously, you need one for th GPS to indicate where you need to go.
    If it has a fix...punch in the coords and happy hunting. El Diablo

    So, which one is it?


    Yes, I know that.

    When I first boot up my GPS, it will say "Finding Satellites

    Tracking #"

    Once it has located enough satellites to get my location and all that other info, it says either "2D Position Fix" or "3D Position Fix". Should I wait for it to say one of those two first? Or can I just punch in the coords? If it helps, I have a Magellan eXplorist 200.

  6. Should I have a position fix on my GPS when entering waypoints? I have found a couple caches that I plotted with a fix, but I found some with an easy rating and I marked them without a fix, and I can't find them anywhere. That was a long sentence ;). So, shortly, should I have a position fix when I'm entering waypoints?
