    Do you need special maps for the 3D version? If so where do you get them? Thanks

    Wow, Thanks for the tip , I will be busy downloading maps.
  5. Cool! This is what worked for me: ExpertGPS=D:\Maps\ExpertGPS\ExpertGPS.exe;"%gpx" Looks like the quotes make the difference. Hey, Thanks Adding the quotes made it work for me. Sure is a cool program
  6. Clyde, What an AWESOME feature. Just tried it with ExpertGPS and it works like a dream. Is there a way to send more than one (let's say three) without filtering/exporting or is the right click trick only good for one at a time? When I try this I get an error that says "program not found" This is what my program says : ExpertGPS=C:\program files\ExpertGPS\ExpertGPS.exe;%gpx What does yours say?
  7. We obiously are not talking about the same thing. I have USAPhoto Maps. It is a great program for looking at color aerial photos of urban areas. It will not take my gpx file with all 3200 of the caches in Utah. The import file size is limited to 1mb, my gpx file is 16mb. Even if it did, if I double clicked on a cache in GSAK, will USAPhoto Maps open up and show me the location of the cache? I don't think so. On the other hand ExpertGps will take my file and show the location on either an aerial or topo, but only if I export a gpx file from GSAK and then open it in Expert GPS and then go and find the cache I am interested in. With the process I described in the post above, if I see a cache in GSAK and want to know where in the Great State of Utah it is located, I simply double click on the cache and I see it on the map displayed in OziExplorer.

    Has any had any experience with OziExplorer? OziExplorer
  10. I just wanted to report back on my OziExplorer adventure. I downloaded and installed Ozi and then opened TOPO and took screen shots of the level 2 maps of Utah. Then I merged all of the screen shots into one big .tiff image. I then loaded and calibrated the map image into Ozi. Then I set the double click option in GSAK to "show Ozi map". Now when I am wondering where a cache is located, I doubleclick on it and the Ozi map comes up and shows me where the cache is. Pretty slick !! Thanks for a great program and timely responses to questions.
  11. Hi me again For those of you who use OziExplorer which maps have you downloaded and what is your preference. Thanks
  12. Thanks for you input. When I take the custom url to terraserver the terraserver window opens, but the cache location is not marked on the aerial photo. What I am wondering is it possible to have the location marked on the aerial photo? I certainly understand if what I am asking is not available, just wondering what the options are.
  13. I hope I am now wearing out my welcome here , but I am just getting into GSAK and realizing what a powerful tool it is. I have 3200 caches in my database(all of Utah), when I drag the scroll button on the left of the screen to the bottom of the bar it moves to the bottom of the list. When I move up one tick it moves somewhere close to the middle of the list . Any body else notice this? Thanks again for your help. Dewayne
  14. Thanks for your insight. A link to terraserver.com which would pop up and show the cache location on an aerial photo would be fantastic. However even the link from GC.COM doesn't show the cache location on the aerial photo.
  15. I decided a while ago to leave dedicated mapping out of GSAK. It is a specialized area and there are more than enough programs already competing in this arena. GSAK already interfaces with many of these - especially well with OziExplorer. Perhaps one day when I have put everything else into GSAK that is "on the list" (this won't be any day soon ) I will revisit this decision - but for now my time is better spent adding geocaching specific features to GSAK which aren't being done in the mapping programs. Thanks for your reply, I will check out OziExplorer.
  16. What an amazing program. Is there a way to have the location show on the aerial photo maps at Microsoft Terra Server? It shows on the other maps like Topo and Mapquest. I hate to use ExpertGPS and GSAK in the same sentence because GSAK does so much more. The map capabilities of ExpertGPS are what I am missing in GSAK. Any hope for something similiar in GSAK? Not wanting to appear as greedy, you have done a great job. Just wondering.
  17. I am wondering if there is anything in the works to link GSAK with a mapping program so we could click on a cache and have it show up on a map. I realize that is probably a big stretch, but just had to ask. I presently use TOPO! and export my data base into TOPO! which works great. Hoping to maybe eliminate a few steps . By the way, I love all of the features in GSAK and think you have done a superb job in putting together an awesome tool for cachers.
  18. I remember seeing this, but can't find it now. How do you change the view of the offline database. Thanks for a great program.
  19. What is the easiest way to clear a subset and show all caches in the database? This is an awesome program

    Query Question

    Thanks, love your avatar
  21. GSAK will do all of these things

    Query Question

    If I create a query and ask for caches updated in the last seven days, does this include new caches as well? Or do I have to set another query for new caches? Thanks and happy new year
  23. We have had several of our caches found by non cachers who have joined and thanked us for our effort. The caches found by these non cachers were not urban caches and were quite well hidden, but they were placed in interesting and well travelled scenic locations. I see nothing wrong with the idea.
  24. Here is a great place to buy when you are ready Zappos
  25. Here is one that has been waiting 18 months and is only 1/2 mile from a dirt road. The Wickiup
