  1. Try QuakeMap - http://www.quakemap.com It has free trial, makes sense of your GPS tracks and prints very useful aerial/topo maps (easy to navigate in the field). Of course, allows off-line aerial/topo, loads .loc files and stores direct links to geocache pages (just click on geocache name on the map). Not to mention $10 price tag when you want to continue using it. Happy Trails!
  2. I have both Garmin eTrex Vista and Magellan SporTrack Pro (from Costco). My preference is Vista for compass, better screen resolution and much better track logging. I like Vista's user interface more, I seem to get more things done in less clicks. Vista's joystick control is also cool, although SporTrack buttons are very well designed and help a lot. My two sons will fight for the Vista when we go geocaching. Both units seem to have same sensitivity and accuracy when you just look at coordinates. Software that comes with them (MapSend streets and MapSource topo) turned out to be not very useful for me; I just use QuakeMap - http://www.quakemap.com - for all my geocaching needs. Happy trails!

  4. your system somehow doesn't have .NET component installed. You can check for it and get the .NET here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/downloads/howtoget.asp More on this issue on www.quakemap.com (click "support->FAQ") Thanks for bringing it up, I guess there are more XP without .NET in the field and you helped me to clear this issue in the FAQ. Happy trails, slg@quakemap.com P.S. nice rocket - do you post pictures of this thing flying somewhere on your web site? I saw such rockets near Victorville, CA.
  5. XP is supposed to have .NET out of the box. If .NET is missing (i.e. on a Win98 machine) the error message will say "missing DLL" rather than "missing .NET". It is probably a good idea to use "Start-->Windows Update" and have your machine install all the latest patches from Microsoft (it is good for stability and security anyway). I can come up with better advice if you tell me what exactly your error message says. Did you go with all defaults during install? Is it XP Home edition?
  6. I posted a new version if QuakeMap on the site (www.quakemap.com). Here are the fixes: 1. The serial connection problem on Win98/ME is fixed, port/baud selection dialog simplified. Tested on a 800MHz Win98 machine, works up to 115200 baud with Magellan SporTrack Pro and at 9600 with Garmin eTrex Vista. Should work with all Magellans and at least Garmin V and all SporTrack. 2. The "evaluation" lettering does not appear sooner than 10 days into trial, printed maps are not spoiled either. 3. high CPU usage and sluggish response is fixed. Please try download it again, feel free to send me your critique to slg@quakemap.com I appreciate the beating you gave me in this group and will strive to make your time and effort worthwhile.

  7. have you considered Garmin iQue? http://www.garmin.com/products/iQue3600/
  8. All I am using for my hunts is http://www.quakemap.com Give it a try (if you have fast machine and Garmin eTrex or Magellan SporTrak) - it may solve your problems.
  9. Thanks for trying! 1. The lettering says "Evaluation" and is there to remind you to register. 2. High bauld rate fails on some machines, default 4800 for Magellan should work fine (9600 for Garmin) 3. We extensively tested with Garmin eTrex Vista, Garmin V and Magellan SporTrak Pro (all on latest firmware). We will improve and test with the others. 4. USAphotomap is a nice and simple piece. QuakeMap offers more functionality and sleek user interface. Produces usable printed maps too! 5. QuakeMap also stores all maps you see on the screen for future "Disconnected" viewing. You can take it on the road on a laptop and see your position on the aerial/topo map as you go. Happy trails!
  10. Take a look at http://www.quakemap.com - all you need for geocaching with your Garmin eTrex or Magellan SporTrak. Print aerial and topo maps, zoom in, load geocaches to GPS... Trial (unlimited time) - free.
