  1. As the number of caches are growing, the limit of 1.000 caches in each Pocket Query is too low. Sometimes more than 1000 caches are published in a (limited) area in one day, which makes it very difficult to monitor and update with today's Pocket Queries. A limit of, let us say, 5000 caches would be more appropriate.


    You may run up to 10 pocket queries in every 24 hour period, each returning up to 1000 geocaches.




    10,000 geocaches a day isn't enough?


    Where is the area where more than 1,000 new caches are published?



    To answer the last question - on Nov 20, 2015 in the desert of Southern California there were 2026 caches placed within 50 miles of one another. The "Highway to H.E.L.L" series (see GC66HHX as an example) So yes it would help having more than a 1000 per pocket query!

  2. Looks like the new year broke the ability to select the year 2000 in the place date option in a Pocket Query I want to create a PQ and select caches hidden between the start of geocaching (5/4/2000 to 12/31/2000) for a challenge but you cannot select that year from the drop down menu - only 2001 to 2017 are the years that are allowed. Can this please be fixed? -40-

  3. I have a recondition Garmin 62s for sale at $300 US. I just got this unit back from Garmin just before Christmas. The GPS still has the protective film on the display. I have upgraded to a Montana 600 so I'm selling this one. There is also a 2GB SD card with North America 2012 Street Maps preloaded on the card that is included.



  4. Sick of trawling through those caches close to home that you've decided you never want to engage with? Wouldn't it be nice to log a 'don't want to find this cache' and to be able to exclude them from lists and maps. The owner wouldn't need to see the post! I'm sure this has been suggested before, just couldn't see it on the forum...
    That exists. It's the "Ignore" button in the upper right corner of every cache page.


    The ignore function doesn't work for not showing the cache on the maps however - just on the PQs. Also, there use to be a moving cache in my area that I would keep getting coordinate updates even though it was on my ignore list I kept getting "Instanotify" Notification email. It would be nice for the ignore function be expanded so they didn't show on any of the instant notifications.

  5. Thanks Hynr - that did it - I missed that icon :) !


    Hynr is right I had a PQ that had never been run and that I couldn't get to the page to delete it. The archive icon on the PQ list page was the trick I was lookng for. I also have routes that are corrupt but since I haven't reached any limit on them I will end up just ignoring them. :unsure:




    Hi -40-, Have you tried deleting these defective PQs by using the table listing all your PQs? It's not obvious or even documented, but if you look at the table, you see a checkbox as the first item in each table row. Check all the ones you want to delete. Then go to the very bottom of the column of checkboxes. Hold the pointy finger over the icon at the bottom of that column and note that it comes up with the tip "Archive Selected PQ's". It's hidden in plain sight. Click and those checked items are toast. "Archived", "deleted", "untabled", "toast",... whatever...

  6. To clarify - I didn't actually run the PQ yet but just tried to preview it. The PQ just refuses to be deleted by giving me an error.




    That happened a couple of times for me as well. The sad thing is that I tried it a couple of times hoping it would go away, BUT instead the PQ:s were created and I was out of PQ:s for the day. Early the next day I was leaving for a three day caching tripp. With the time difference to Sweden, where I live, I missed the other PQ I wanted. I had to download every cache's GPX separately and edit them to get a big file to download to my GPSr....

  7. I was trying to create a PQ along a route that I uploaded last night. I was having trouble with creating a route that I see is being discussed in another posting.


    However, I cannot delete the four PQ that I created last night since they are corrupted. Here is the error that I receive when I try to delete the corrupted PQs. Any suggestions how to get rid of the PQs - I've been looking for the box to kick but I can't find it :mad: ?


    I also cannot delete the routes from the "Your Created Routes" tab - I get into the route and hit delete key and click OK. But when I go back into the list it is still there.


    Are TPTB out there for help?

  8. I don't like the changes they made to the profiles by adding the ***'s and changing around the order.

    Then remove the ***s and re-order it the way you like.


    I think what people are missing here is that there used to be three separate areas for entering stuff and each was limited in size. Now there is ONE BIG AREA that can be much, much larger. They added some ***headings*** when they combined the sections into one, but you can take them out and make it just the way you like :cry:


    I tried to edit my profile. There is a comment that it says that I have 15,000 character limit. When I edit the profile to remove the "***'s" and remove the hobbies heading I get an error that I can't have more than 5000 characters :wub: . It looks like the limit restriction raising to 15,000 hasn't been fully implemented. :wub:


    i can't get over how convenient and useful of a tool this is, and when i encounter other cachers many seem not to know about it yet. it's so useful that it surprises me that its not a members-only feature, to be honest.


    Toooo inaccurate, imho.


    PQ fed into GPSVisualizer and the output fed into google earth. Now THERE'S a tool!


    Hi Adrenalynn,


    I agree with the Google Earth plugin inaccuracy. You can actually drag the PQ results file (the uncompressed .gpx file) directly directly into the google earth window and Google Earth will read it. One less step than using GPSVisualizer first :o.



  10. :D:P:P FINALLY - My 4 Bronze and 2 Pewter Wyoming Coins arrived in Northern California today! :P:PB)


    Postmark was April 3rd and not March 23rd like Ross said to me!?! :(:P


    Oh well - my glass went from nearing empty to full! :ph34r:


    Mmmmm, Beer - Marky when you coming to SacraTomato?? :P

  11. I see the same thing as Team Neos; logger & date only on March 26 and later. A couple March 26 entries DID have complete logs which leads me to belive that sometime on Sunday something in the PQ engine changed. Hope this helps in troubleshooting.


    I wonder if it has anything to do with this this from Jeremy ?

  12. I noticed that on a PQ that I received today didn't have the log text - just the finder's name and found date. I noticed it when I imported it into GSAK. Thinking it was a GSAK I discussed with Clyde however I opened the actual PQ in a text file and there is no text for the logs. When I go directly to the individual cache page and download the .gpx file, everything is there.


    Could this be a bug?

  13. My glass of beer is still half full...


    Looks like the half full guys won on this. :huh:


    Actually I think we all won since it ACTUALLY looks like people are finally getting the Wyoming coins! :tired:


    Now Marky on that Beer ... maybe an RCGDS event???? ;)

  14. My glass of beer is still half full...


    So is mine - it would be completely full but I keep drinking it! :huh:


    Marky, I will be in Bezerkely on the April 14-16th - Bison or Triple Rock sounds cool :huh::huh:

  15. Just a brief note to let everyone know that I have sent the following email to the individual who purchased the WY coin tracking codes:






    I will do my best to assist with a resolution of this issue. Best case (of course) would be coins arriving in mailboxes tomorrow. My fingers are crossed.




    Thanks Rothstafari for the assistance! :blink::rolleyes:

  16. I also got an email response from Ross yesterday saying that 1/2 the coins went out by Monday and the other 1/2 on Tuesday. Then he left the note above today saying that the rest went out today.


    I guess that gives about 2-4 days to see if he is truthful. :laughing:


    I guess I'm a little like Marky, I also see the glass as half full :anibad:.

  17. I am going to give the guy until the 27th (1 week) like I told him today and if coins haven't made it to the purchasers then I think it is time for action. He did contact me today and I told the coin creator that I would give him a week - but that is ALL that I will wait.

  18. I would think that the gentleman who is in charge of this coin could at least comment either in the forum or by private email on what the status is of the coins.


    I see that he has had time to attend "an evening of fun and music" in Connecticut (GCTDBG) last week but doesn't have time to fill in his customers on what the status is????? Inquiring minds want to KNOW!!!!!! :D:):D

  19. Waiting less patiently.... :rolleyes:


    I have even tried email the coin owner and no response. I'm not having good feelings about this.... :huh:



    News would be good here!
