  1. Hi There, I am using the Web2.0 services of Everytrail. It's based on the gpx to.. You can find more info on how to (4 steps) on my blog. http://geocachingwithweedboer.blogspot.com...oogle-maps.html regards, Hans
  2. As I am pretty sure this one is the highest on earth: Chomolangma at an Altitude of 7.570 metres. http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_detai...72-100c832a351c For your info...I haven't found it.. so far... :-) regards, Hans
  3. I use a HP HX4700 (got from the company) with gpxsonar (free) for geocaching, TomTom navigation and for business related tasks. The whole technical explanation of using this unit for paperless caching can be found on my blog. Check it out... Regards, Hans
  4. I don't think you can with the default USB stick. Simple reason: there is no operating system on it. But I remember well, there exist some stick which can "live on their own", some kind of smart sticks. But even then it is a big question if they can work together with your garmin device... regards, Hans
  5. A few times I was mentally injured when I didn't find it...But it is already getting better...thanks. :-) Greetings, Hans
  6. You can find an article on my blog related to Poiloader and gpsmap 60csx. Check it out if you need more info on this matter. Regards, Hans
  7. You say you finally want to hit the road and start cachen. If I were you, I started learn how to use my garmin device: putting in coordinates (mark) and bring me to them (find). Start with a paper print of the cache. All the rest (gsak, cachemate,...) are nice to have's which you can read during evenings after you logged your finds.
  8. If you use Gsak, check out this macro: http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=3172 I use it for my gpsmap60csx including the hints and child waypoints. Check out my blog articles (see signature). Regards, Hans
  9. As a premium member it's easy: one of the variables during the setup of the pocket query is a flag called 'found' which you can activate or not. If you use Gsak, it is also easy to filter out found caches. Just add a filter. Kind regards, Hans
  10. There are a lot of threads containing unit advice. Here is one: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php?showtopic=173184 If you look for a max $250 unit your choice is quite big: Garmin Legend, Vista, GPSMAP 60 in versions C/CX/HCX/... Look on garmin.com for comparisons between different units. (Oh yeah...there are Magellan units too in this price range...) Regards, Hans
  11. Search for geocaches by name, waypoint code or even town name... Search for travel bugs or geocoins... Search for geocachers profiles... Mail a fellow geocacher... It doesn't have to be difficult anymore. You don't have to visit the geocaching.com search pages anymore and provide the necessary criteria. I can now proudly present you the 7 Firefox Geocaching search plugins: Firefox users: (right mouseclick + Save link as): 1. GC - seek by name 2. GC - seek by waypoint 3. GC - seek by city (result in map) - NEW 4. GC - seek by city (result in list) - NEW 5. GC - seek trackable 6. GC - seek a profile of a geocacher 7. GC - mail another geocacher Just download those 7 files and copy them to the following folder: * C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\searchplugins (note: this is the default installation folder of Firefox. It might be different on your computer. Just make sure they are saved in the 'searchplugins' subfolder of 'Mozilla Firefox') When you restart Firefox, you'll have all the search plugins next to the URL address toolbar. See the screen shot below as example: Internet Explorer 7 users: * save gc-searchplugins.txt * rename the file to "gc-searchplugins.reg" * click twice on the file and confirm the message popup * done! Good luck and thanks for any comments! weedboer Please note: so far no special characters van be used..only straight ASCII (26 letters)...
  12. I started geocaching with an Ipaq HX4700 and TomTom Navigator 5. With a little TT add-on it was possible to make a POI of the entered coordinates. Then it was up to me to go to the POI. So, never say it is not possible. The question is, how difficult do you want to play it :-) I have now a handheld, because my Ipaq is not a device which is not rugged. (Although I still use it for paperless caching...) Greetings, Hans
  13. Oh cool, one who grabs it can't barely hide it again, I think... Greetings, weedboer
  14. The simplest solutions are the best ones. Many people these days only have cell phones, like myself. Not really an option. so, don't send it to your cell phone. Again, one of the simplest solutions :-P
  15. You do not have to activate it, because the owner of the travel bug should have done this already. When you find a travelbug, you'll need to log it. Just like you log a found/not found of a cache. More info: http://www.geocaching.com/track/howto.aspx Greetings, Hans
  16. Here (http://www.geocacher-u.com/resources/paperless.html) you find a paperless caching tutorial for Palm. If you need one for PocketPC check my blog. Greetings, Hans
  17. Hi there, There is a post where it is announced that username changes are now possible: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...p;#entry3032392 Kind regards, Hans
  18. That's why you never should shout "Help" when you are in danger, but it is better to should "Fire!" instead... Greetings, Hans
  19. If you want to track an object you can use the Garmin Astro :-) https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?cID=209&pID=8576# Greetings, Hans
  20. In my opinion you will absolutely NOT miss an electronic compass, even less because you have pocket compass...it is just an extra feature. Greetings, Hans
  21. you don't need a Garmin chip. Any microSD like Kingston or Sandisk will do it just fine. But I am not sure what the total amount of data is when you are planning to put all CN on one chip...but...is this necessary? If you're planning a trip to the other side of the country, just put that region onto the chip...takes 3 minutes... Greetings, Hans
  22. New addicted cachers are reborn :-)
  23. Or click here: http://www.geocaching.com/kml/buildnetworkkml.aspx Greetings, Hans
  24. If you want to do it with a gpsmap 60csx you can find a way on my blog. But I am sure it is available elsewhere too...Here is the direct link: http://geocachingwithweedboer.blogspot.com...map-60-csx.html As I don't have another device I can check it out, but I guess it is also applicable to the eTrex series. Does anyone have experience with that? Greetzz, Hans
