Paperless Caching How? in GPS technology and devices Posted April 22, 2006 With the PDA or laptop, you can upload the entire description, hints, recent logs, etc., etc., where you can only upload the waypoint and perhaps a little extra info into the GPS. I just started paperless caching myself, with a cheap old Palm I bought on eBay in conjunction with GSAK and Cachemate. I can't tell you how nice it is to be able to upload a couple thousand caches into the Palm and have all of the information handy all the time! It's great to be able to have the full descriptions with me all the time... If I see a cache coming up that I had pre-loaded into the GPS, I can look up all of its details, with suggested parking and whatever other helpful information might be in the description. I won't be going back to printing all this stuff out any time soon! I must be missing something. I download the .loc files (pocket query) and use Easy GPS to download/upload to/from my GPS. Then I take my GPS with all of the waypoints in it's tiny little memory, hang it around my neck and off I go. When I am near a cache, I locate nearest waypoint. What is the Palm Pilot and the Laptop for?
