  1. Yes local caches and unzipped. (I've done it too. LOL) No filters set.
  2. I have a small problem. I have a geocaching gpx file that I have copied over to the gpx folder of my Montana 650 but when I press the geocaching button it says there are no geocaches to find. What am I doing wrong here?
  3. Just updated my 62S to Firmware 5.70 today, loaded a PQ and had the wife drop me off on a dirt road with the intention of walking home. No sooner had she left when I found a major issue with my 62S which worked perfectly fine yesterday. It seems to load the PQ and shows the Geocaches on the map, but as soon as I select one the GPS freezes and no buttons work. I can't even shut the GPS off with the power button, I have to remove the batteries and reboot, but the problem persists. Anyone else have this issue and or know if a way to fix this problem? Totally screwed up my afternoon of planned Geocaching. Grrrrrr.
  4. Hi guys, Going on a cruise in a month to Nassau Bahamas, St Thomas USVI, Puerto Rico & Turks & Caisos. I own a Garmin GPS Map 62S and wonder if there are any free maps I can install on my gps so I can Geocache while in these areas? I was thinking OSM, but will they work on my Garmin? Detailed instructions please as I'm not too good with this stuff. Thanks!
  5. Recently bought a SPOT satellite messenger and love it! Just wondering how many people are using this device to stay in touch while out Geocaching? Any tips for me? How many people do you have on your contact list? What messages do you have preset?
  6. How do I generate a PQ based on favorite votes?
  7. I don't see a place in the 62S to run Wherigo cartridges. Are you not able to play Wherigo with it?
  8. Exactly what I was looking for! Thanks very much!
  9. On my Garmin 62S, the Geocaching dashboard shows me the total count of Geocaches found since I bought the unit. How can I reset this unit?
  10. A few years back I found a plugin for Google Earth that not only showed Geocaches in a given area, but also drew a circle around that cache equal to about 200m to indicate how far a new cache could be hidden. I recently reinstalled Google Earth and can't find that plugin, which I found to be very helpful. Does anyone know where I can find this plugin or a similar tool?
  11. Just bought a new Garmin GPSMap 62S and found 11 caches with it. I can't seem to figure out how to delete all my found caches. I realize I can delete them one by one, but is there a faster method?
  12. Would these free maps work on a Mac? Can you point me in the right direction?
  13. Thankfully I dont have Windows on my computer now do I have access to a Windows computer. :-) I have Basecamp on my Mac but how can I get the map files into it? It's not copy protected so that should make it easier. Can I just copy the img files over?
  14. Mapsource came with the cd's but it's a Windows based program. How do I load it onto my Mac?
  15. Several years ago, I bought Topo Canada maps from Garmin. Since that time I bought a Mac and have no idea how to load the maps so I can put them on my GPS. I have already d/n Map Install, but am not sure how to use it as there are no instructions. Has anyone else run into this?
  16. I just bought a 62S yesterday and found only one cache yesterday with it. Stupid screen popped up. I'm running version 2.90 and don't see a way to shut this stupid nag screen off. Can someone give me details on how to shut it off? Seems some people don't get it. Very annoying....
  17. Can someone explain why an electronic compass has to be calibrated every time you change the batteries? What happens if you don't calibrate?
  18. Thanks for the help guys! just what I was looking for!!
  19. First, let me start by saying I have read several reviews about the 62S. None of them answer my questions. 1. Is the 60S faster than the 60CSX or the Oregon when opening menus, searching etc? Does it have a faster processor? 2. How many Geocaches can be loaded on this at once? I have seen conflicting answers on this. Thanks very much!
  20. I have to say that I sign most caches I find, however I almost never sign the nano's. I have big fingers and can never get the paper back inside. So when I do find the cache, I take a photo of it to prove I was there and actually found the cache. Is this considered taboo? LOL
  21. Is it possible to have my GC stat bar inserted in each email I send out and have it automatically update? Also, can this work for the Iphone?
  22. Mine are not working. I have created a new one about 11am this morning. It's now 1:30pm and I'm still waiting.
  23. Is it possible to have Geocaches show up in the maps app on my iPad?
