  1. I created a PQ with 998 caches and loaded it into my wifes 550T and my 400T, Then we went caching. We usually do the find closest cache and The 550T would not find some the 400T did. and visa versa. I was under the 2,000 caches on my 400T and the 550T was under 5,000. Any suggestions on what is going on. <_<


    I had the same problem with my wife's Colorado 500t. There appears to be an 8 meg file size limit. I found it out when I loaded a 12 meg file and some of the caches were missing. I reduced the number of logs to get under the 8 meg restriction. No more problems.


    The GSAK forums have a thread about the problem.

  2. At one time, an illegal "placed between date" in a pocket query (i.e., 6/31/09) would result in an error message when the PQ was submitted. Later, illegal dates couldn't happen since only legal days of the month were made available in the pull down list based on a month and year. Now, an illegal date is accepted and when the PQ is run, it always returns 500 caches. It's not a big deal, but it was nice not having to figure out how many days there were in February.

  3. Now when I goto my map info on my GPS I have two maps listed:CN North America 2010 and CN Lower 49 States + PR DEM. The 2nd set is the Topo Maps. You can check and uncheck both maps to look at either the city or Topo maps. Check to see what yours looks like after the update. Im thinking either the Topo maps are not checked or that they didnt download correctly. If they are missing I would contact Garmin.


    Both are checked. Can you verify whether show a stream just south of N44˚ 17', W85˚ 23'. I did with the original set but not now.


    Garmin is supposed to get back to me.

  4. I was real happy with my NUVI 500 until I loaded the free map update. Prior to the update, the original maps showed small lakes, streams and rivers, swamps, etc along with topography. After the update, it's just City Navigator 2010 plus contours. No rivers or lakes. I'm currently trying to find out from Garmin how I can reload the original maps. If I had it to do over, I would have simply loaded City Navigator 2010 on the SD card as an additional map set and selected it when I needed it.

  5. I have exactly the same problem as The Blorenges and I use gmail.


    I've just tried to do a PQ today which seemed to run but never turned up in my email, so I tried another 4 and they appear to have run but never showed up!


    Who is your ISP? If the PQs ran, they are probably being throttled or blocked by your email provider . . . :laughing:


    Since I changed to Gmail, I have not had a problem getting PQs that run.



    Edit to add appropriate quote and to say I'm requesting a PQ . . . we'll see if it arrives in my Gmail account.

  6. I generate .gpx files using DeLorme SA2009+ and GPSBABEL. It worked fine until about a week ago. I generate 100 points, GC reports only 49 and, like others, won't let me save it. I thought it was my problem. Now I think it's theirs.

  7. I prefer to use Delorme SA+ instead of Google earth to generate my routes and have been unable to get geocaching.com to accept either my .kml or .gpx files. After saving my routes as .anr files, I simplify them to 100 points and export them using gpsbabel to create .gpx or .kml files. When I upload a .kml file, geocaching.com says, "Sorry! We encountered an error when requesting that page!". Uploading the .gpx file simply returns me to the upload page without doing anything. Has anyone had success loading files created by gpsbabel?

  8. What's with the green box between the "additional hints" and the "logged visits" on the print friendly page. It showed up when the Google maps were announced and sucks up about a quarter of a page.

  9. I noticed that "print-friendly" retains the Mapquest map. Will that continue (I hope)?


    We also hope the "print-friendly" pages continue to use MapQuest.


    Also, there seems to be an empty green box between the hints and LOGGED VISITS that takes up a lot of space on the "print-friendly" page.



  10. Clyde,


    I usually "clear database before loading" when I add a new PQ. The corrected coordinates get added to the updated database but the user flags don't. Is there any way to have the user flags stick?



  11. I'm trying to print a list of one of my databases in grid column format and I keep getting the following message; "Ths file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel." How do I do that? The control panel associates an .htm file (the type of file it's complaining about) with Firefox. Am I missing something?
