  1. Since it was a question about the Garmin Colorado...


    Someone asked if The Colorado could play sound:



    Jeremy Replied:

    It just has a basic piezo speaker, I'm afraid. It's hard to have audio capabilities on a durable unit. At least that's my understanding of it. We create sounds in Wherigo Player with sequences beeps using frequency and duration values.


    I need to find some early game developers to figure out some good tunes to share for these experiences.


    So, I am asking:

    Since the Colorado can not play sound files...will you have to create 2 versions of a cartridge for people that have a PPC and people that have a Colorado?


    If you created a Wav for the PPC...what happens if someone puts it on the Colorado...would it just beep or do nothing...or crater?

  2. Some times the people who place caches don't get good readings...or transpose numbers when publishing the cache.


    I NEVER give updated coordinates to a Final of a puzzle cache...because that would give it away...but a regular cache that is found further away...I'll post corrected coordinates.


    The cache owner can accept those or move the cache back to its original spot and make a note of that.


    Here is one that I made. The original coordinates put you in the middle of a River.



  3. To use the builder, it says you need the .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package...file name "DotNetFx.exe".


    If you have .NET Framework Version 2.0 SP1 installed, you will get an ERROR saying that the package is not compatible with the curent Framework version.


    According to Microsoft Article





    Which basically says this:


    Uninstall the .NET Framework Version 2.0 SP1


    Install the .NET Framework Version 2.0 Redistributable Package


    Reinstall .NET Framework Version 2.0 SP1

  4. I Tried the "Wherigo.com" site and got (I have been Black Listed"):

  5. Looks good so far with complete geocache info (Hints ... etc.)....but all I see are Blue charts and Topo....nothing that it can use street maps.


    I see an automotive mode...but what is that?


    I'll have to wait and see user comments before I go get one.

  6. ***is that what the thing next to the antennae is? A wheel?????!?!?? why must they put them ontop of the screen, I find that so annoying.....I thought that thing was a speaker, atleast its not that***


    Yea, I hate buttons at the top...that is why I bought a 60Csx instead of a 76Csx.

  7. When I was trying to do my 50/50 cache (GC13PX5)...I had created MP3/wav files to be down loaded to an MP3 player...so someone could listen to instructions for the Mystery Cache.


    I was told that was not allowed (this was even a discussion in an old thread)....because of rule changes (I think they said 02/2007) that did not alllow "Required" downloadable files....and in order to do the cache, an "Alternate" method had to be available.


    So, I scrapped that PODCACHE idea and just had a readable instruction sheet for someone to follow.
