  1. Thank you for the help. I will be returning the Surface 2 tomorrow and maybe looking at the Acer T100.
  2. Today I purchased a Microsoft Surface 2 for the sole purpose of being able to travel and use it with my Garmin ETrex20. I got it because it has a USB port to connect my GPS. I tried to load caches, but the plug-in does not download. Can anyone tell me how I can get this to work? If it will not I need to return the Surface 2. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  3. I have a new Garmin Etrex20 and have been able to get caches into the GPS from Geocaching.com one at a time. Is there a way to load multiple caches into the GPS? At the end of the day I can bring up the list of "show found" caches. Is there an efficient way to then do the logs on Geocaching.com? I am having to go into the description of each cache to find the cache number then search for it online before doing my logs. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  4. Could someone please tell me how to set up a notification for events in my area? Also, is it possible to print out a full city map of all the caches? Thank you.
  5. When I first started I was getting regular email notifications when someone visited my caches. These notifications have stopped. I still get notified when someone visits a cache I have on my watchlist. I tried to add notifications for my caches but it says, as the owner, I already would get those. I also don't get notified when my travel bug is moved or has comments. The only way I know if something has been done is to go to each to check. Can someone tell me what may be going on? I would appreciate any help with this. Thank you.
  6. Does the frisbee rule go for Forest Service land too?
  7. Thank you. I was told by one city employee that they try to discourage placing caches because it would lead to more garbage being in the area. She knew of a cache up the hill right behind the university and she has seen beer bottles by it. Beer bottles by a college. What a shock. It is doubtful they even knew there was a cache there at all.
  8. I am interested in placing a cache in an open space managed by a city. At this time I keep being transferred to different people. Could someone please tell me if the permission to place a cache needs to be in writing from a city or an agency such as the Forest Service? I was told by one person that she believes people are just placing them and not getting permission at all, but I want to do this correctly through proper channels. Any tips on getting the necessary authorization to place a cache would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  9. I have an LG phone and I'm using the Groundspeak app for Android. Today I tried to find a cache without success then realized it was because it was one that required entering waypoints. I do not see any place on the app where I can enter the coordinates. Is there someone who can tell me how this is done? Thank you.
  10. I purchased the Geocaching.com app. I have entered my logs and they show on the main website on the computer but they are not appearing on the phone app under "recent logs." Is there some type of refresh button I need to hit on the phone? I am bringing up the "nearby geocaches." I'm just wondering why the nearby caches aren't including the most current information.
  11. Thank you. I had just researched apps and thought this one was O.K. I will download one of those suggested. Sorry.
  12. I am new to geocaching and so far have found 6. I go into C:Geo and refresh caches I have stored. Then I use the compass to guide me to the general area. Do most people just use the compass or do you use the compass then switch the format to the overlapping circles or trail lines? I originally started just using the circles then found the compass feature. I just don't understand which method is the most accurate and would appreciate any advice.
